Fish'n

Happy Wednesday to you all. It is beginning to feel like Fall here in MI. We have had some crisp days so I thought I would stop at the Cider mill and get the kids a treat, sad to say we had such a bad Spring here that all the apples are gone, and I put my hands on a gallon of cider which cost $12.50. I quickly put that back and got the smaller cider. There is nothing like apple picking in the Fall and this year there will be none. I am so SAD.

Today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we have Patties Creations as our fabulous sponsor this week. This weeks winner get to pick 3 digi images from Pattie's shop. Pattie has a bunch of great images it will be hard to pick just 3!
Above is the sketch for this week and I just love the big open space for a great image like the one I used on my card called Fisherman's Delight.  I think this will be for my husbands Birthday in early Oct.  I hope you can join us this week at SSW. Be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the team has created. 
Have a super week.

I love your card, Heide ~ such a great image. I hadn't realised the cider was in shortage this Fall :(

Hi Heide, I love your wonderful masculine card such a great image for those males that love fishing. Great colours and papers. I must say we had a wonderful season for apples and so many new varieties this year. I just love biting into a wonderful crisp apple. We can buy Cider all year round over here but yours is a lot cheaper than ours 1.5 litre bottle about $8.99 I quite like a well chilled Cider very refreshing. Take care and have a wonderful week.
Hugs

Oh Heide, what a perfect birthday card for your husband! This image so reminds me of my Dad and his fishing days and occupation as Fisheries Biologist and head of the Utah Fish Hatcheries. Perfect design paper for your image! Fabulous job!
