All About the Boys

 Hi there, crafty friends!

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamps challenge at The House that Stamps Built. With Father's Day right around the corner, Wendy has challenged us to use a theme of 'All About the Boys' this week.

Here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:

Our grandson has been taking swimming lessons. While we were in DC a few weeks ago, we were able to watch the kids swim. They are SO good in the water! Anyway, Nate got promoted into the next class, so there was a definite need for a hooray card for our 'little fish'!!!

Here's what I made:

Tried for a better photo, but just could NOT get the lighting right for this card. Oh well, you get it, right???

And here is the way the card opens up. Isn't this adorable? I found lots of ideas on Pinterest, and sort of designed my own shape and size here. Note: the sentiments on the inside of the card are not RI stamps, but the bubbles, plant, and fish definitely are!!!

Here's a close up shot of the silly fish face. 

This was a fun challenge, and I hope you'll all join in! We all need some man cards in our stash!

 We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s theme, and enter it in our challenge at The House that Stamps Built!  Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them!  Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!
One lucky person this month will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Now, it's time to see what my DT friends have created!

I just love the eyes on your fish! I love the pop-up element! Very nicely done!

This is such a fun card. I think your grandson will love it. I know I do! We have two grandchildren who swim competetively. It's such a wonderful, lifelong sport.

Those googly eyes brought an immediate smile to my face, and then you open the card and wow! Too cute. Love it!
Enjoy your day.

I just had to share I was so inspired by your fish face card and just made one thanks to you! I also have a grandson named Nate and remember making him a card to congratulate him when he was taking swimming lessons too:)
