Christmas in July!
Can you guess what this stamp is from? :D If you guessed Hooked on Fishing, you're right! I don't come from a very outdoorsy family - I think the closest I've come to fishing is poking at my goldfish at home. So I actually am not even sure what this ball boopy thing is for (Laura, stop laughing!). I thought about google-ing it but I didn't even know where to begin...
But after playing with it a little, I saw a Christmas ornament! So I ran with that idea. Isn't it fun though? I love that you can buy a Fishing set, using it during the summer and then pull it out for some fun Christmas cards. Hah. Talk about versatility right? (I know I kinda hammer that phrase in every post but it's so true!)
I embossed the little "ball boopy thing" (yes that's a technical term) in silver and then cut them out. I also punched a small snowflake, covered it with a little glitter and then added a gem in the middle. Added some silver string for my ornaments to hang on! Isn't that just plain fun? On my overall card piece, I added some scoring to give it some texture.
What else do you think the "ball boopy thing" could be? ;-)
