Gone Fishing Birthday Card

Hey everyone!
 I just wanted to share a birthday card I made for my Grandpa.
He turns 87 today!!!

This cute little bear is from KaDoodle Bug Designs cut file "Gone Fishing Bears" (Original artwork by Kristi W. Designs).   My grandpa loves to fish, so he was perfect!! His face is off of Peach Keen's new Teddy Bear Set.

The birthday sentiment was off of Jaded Blossom's "Sweet Birthday Wishes" set and I also used their flag die from the Flag Dies 2 set.  

Paper is from Simple Stories and twine is Timeless Twine Cherry Red.

Thanks for stopping by!

This cute little monkey came from a cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs 
called "Going Bananas Over You".
The sentiment is from the "Simple Sayings Valentine Edition" set by Jaded Blossom.
I created the face using Peachy Keen Stamps Teddy Bear Assortment faces.  I loved the eyes on this set, but they were a little too far apart for this cute little monkey, so I masked them off and moved them closer together.

This is my first official post as a Jaded Blossom Design Team member 
AND because its Day 1 of sneaks for Januarys release!   

We are showcasing two stamps sets for todays sneaks-- 
Valentine Candies and Got  Candy?

For my project, I used the sentiment "Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite nerd!" off of the Got Candy set and 
"Will you be mine?" off of the Valentines Candies set.
Here is a close up of the sentiments.  I also used the scalloped flag die from the Jaded Blossom Flag Die 2 set and the small flag die from their first Flag Die set.
I used this cute cut file from Paper Piecings by Nikki called I Love My Geek.  
I thought he was just perfect for this project!  I even had to add some glossy accents for his glasses.
