I adore these little vintage looking stamps I got from Jo-Anns, they are from Prima. I added a little fish stamp from Paper Smooches. The sentiments are from Studio G and Taylored Expressions. I made a little slide so I could hide the sentiment. I added the cutest little fish charm. The image is stamped on watercolor paper, love the thickness and texture of it. Its colored with distress inks, the water, and everything else with Prismacolor markers. I just got a few from Hobby Lobby for 1.61 on clearance. My first ever of these, really like them. 
 And this is a picture of my brother's father in law Terry. This card is for him. This  is what everyone in my family is doing since it got a little warm. Not me, hate fishing, would rather be crafting lol.
