MC Mar/11 - Water - Koi HB

I really like this embossing folder, but it's so rare I get to use it. I thought I'd get a head start on my cousins BD card this year... Every year he goes with a bunch of friends on a 2 week fishing trip, so thought Id do a fish theme again this year. Last year's one was humorous, so thought I'd be a bit more serious this time. But did add the little whimsy of the fish in the frying pan button charm - BIG GRIN

I'm also using a Quietfire Design rubber sentiment.

The theme this week on Created By Hand and Quietfire Creations is Water or silver

I also started using my Tim's tiny attacher. Have had this stapler for a couple years now and have used it maybe 3 times in that time. But then I used it the other day and something altered inside me - I'm having fun using it now.

Anyway, you can click on card to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.

See, if you hadn't told me about the staples, I never would have figured out where the office supplies were--they look like stitching!
Great take on the Gingersnap Office Supply Challenge!
