Carolina Girl (Cely)
inside.......FISH WHISPERER

(OBG) Oldie But Goodie Thursday
at Catch the Bug

Gus - Fish Whisperer from Bugaboo Stamps was the perfect image to use for a birthday card for our friend Harry.  Harry has taught me all kinds of fishing tips and tricks over the years.  We have shrimped at midnight on the outskirts of Charleston Harbor and puttered down the Wando River in Charleston.  Yup, some of my fish tales have grown...lol But, Harry still puts up with my "sometimes" ineptness at fishing. Being on the water is being in one of my happy places!!!

This is a pretty CAS card.  I have my own cattail svgs, but I chose to use a Silhouette cattail file today.  Some copics, stitching, fish brad and glossy accents for glasses and I call it done.
