Long Time No Sea

Well Hello There!!
WOW! It's been so long since I've had anything to post!
Huckleberry Pie Goes Fishing from Fresh Brewed Designs
My mother-in-law came to visit for a week. She arrived on Wednesday.
That Sunday, MY parents flew into town!
With overlapping visits from all of our parents, finding crafty time 
was "challenging" to say the least!

Then Irene stopped by to visit, shortly after the Earthquake...

It's just been non-stop crazy around here!

So, I am SUPER-excited to be able to share Huck with you today!
I made this card for the Fresh Brewed Designs "Emboss It!" Challenge,
which started last Wednesday and ends TOMORROW!!

I used Cuttlebug "Swirls" for the water
Sizzix "Diamonds" for the "sky" and
Zing Clear Embossing Powder for the Hook.
Unfortunately, I asked DH to help me tie the hook
onto the fishing line... he tore it :(
We tried to salvage it, but it still looks a little mangled...
probably have to make a new one
without his help this time!

If you follow the FBD Blog, you'll know that there is a Tab at the top of the page
with sneak peaks of all our up-coming challenges!
So you know that tomorrow starts a new challenge, and it's a good one!


I have the new set of Fresh Brewed Rubber Stamps
You will want to mark your calendar for September 8th
to stop back and check it out!!!

There is SO MUCH coming up for September
this could turn into a marathon post
to mention it all...

So for now, I'll stop here
with a gentle nudge... hurry back for more news!! (-:

And thanks for visiting today!
