A 2 Year Old and a Fisherman!

Loll Thompson was the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast last week and I chose her Drew is 2 card to CASE.  My grandnephew, Landon, will be 2 in Sept - and I just loved Loll's card with the torn rolling hills and fun truck!

I used a pickup truck from Rubbernecker and added a house and trees to the landscape using my Memory Box die. I also sponged clouds, using a template from Inky Antics,  rather then using die cut ones. And I added a sun with the #2 in it from the Pub Cat Alphabet Set. I used my P-touch label maker for Landon's name.

This fishing themed card is for two Split Coast challenges -
First I cased this great masculine Truckload of Birthday Wishes card of Debbie's our Featured Stamper this past Sunday. I used a different image, made a slightly smaller card, added a sentiment and adhered my oval at an angle.

And I was also able to work it into Tueday's Teapot Challenge - A Man of the Woods - one of the options was to use anything to do with Fishing. Our cards this week will go to Heath - a young man seriously injured in an industrial accident who could use some happy mail to help keep his spirits up!

I love this Rubbernecker sentiment that goes so well with the fishing basket (a creel, I've been informed!). Perfect for Heath the fisherman I thought. And inside I stamped a verse from 1 Peter - Cast your cares upon him for he cares for you. Yikes - another, kind of, fishing reference!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
