I am making a series of sympathy cards using this tree from "Lovely as a Tree" by Stampin' Up. It is an older set but a favorite. Since these cards all go to guys in their 50s, and who live in in a wooded area, I thought this would be appropriate. The bg is dry embossed with Cuttlebug's vine folder. The sentiment is by Paper Inspirations.

This Dearie Doll colored digi is great for our grandson - he is in his mid 20's - loves dogs and the outdoors, including fishing. This is not the right kind of dog, but the idea is there! I used some DP I hae had for a long time. The sentiment is by TAWS, and I had a chance to use my doggie bone
punch! This is a bit of a stretch for the Things that hop challenge - but have you seen your fishing rod and line when there is a fish - it really hops! Sketch: Sketch Saturday Things that hop: Simon Says Stamp Monday Birthday Sentiment: Aud Sentiments Any: Crafting Circle Crafty Creations
I used this clipart image a while ago, and realized it would be perfect for our friend. He and I have birthdays within a few days of each other, and we just celebrated a few days ago. They are snowbirds and headed for their summer place in Colorado. So he already has the card, and he enjoyed it even more than I expected! Unless you are Nebraska fans, you probably do not realize that Herbie Husker is a mascot of the football Cornhuskers. With a nickname like that, and the ear of corn you can see, this must meet the farm theme of the Creative Corner challenge!

We had a small family reunion at our house last week. I was asked to make a card featuring a margarita card. I found a great set by googling clip art - but I cannot find it now! I used a scrap of pattern paper to continue the theme, and added stickles to the salt on the glass.
The end of the sentiment (inside) says..."especially when the salt accompanies a drink and good friends!"
