Little fishing bear

I decided to go back thru my stash and start using things that I either have never used or haven't seen for so long, I didn't even know I owned them! lol In doing so , I came across a set of bear stamps that my daughter owned when she was a little girl. I used one for a card a long time ago and decided I would use this one. I then went thru a bunch of older charms and found the fish. Well, I figured that was enough searching so got started. lol I did steal the twig from the neighbor's tree but in was hanging on our side of the property line. lol Thanks for stopping by.

I am entering it in the following challenges:

The Sweet Shop- Sketch and must be for a male

Cooking it up With Katie - must be for a guy, must use a charm and use three colors. I chose brown cream and green

Fab 'n' Funky is metal mania.....the charm and the hooks are my metal

ABC is U for unused stash.

Creative Inspirations
punches or die cuts. I used a MS border punch as well as my Nesties and corner die.

Practical Stampers - patterned paper.

Andrea's Stampin' Moments- scallops

Stamptacular Sunday- trees.... hope having part of a real tree will do (even if it was "borrowed" from the neighbor! lol

Sundays with Crissy- use your favorite things. I couldn't decide if I would just use my favorite tools or what with this challenge. Then decided to use tools but also stamp something that was my favorite. I really like teddy bears so that covers the stamped part. lol I also love using charms on creations. And for tools, I love my ATG, nesties, ink and sewing machine. So lots of my favorite thing were added to this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. May God bless each of you.

Hugs, Diana
