Sweet Life

As you can probably tell by my cards, I love to have a scene on mine.  I thought that this card would fit in Bitten By The Bug 2 and Exploring Cricut.

I used the cartridges A Child"s Life for the little boy fishing and Animal Kingdom for the dog.  I decided to alter the cut slightly by cutting the fishing line off the pole and using 3 strands of black embroidery thread instead.  I also cut the grass apart to be able to put it where I wanted it.   I used Close to My Heart pencils in the shades of Grey, Holiday Red, Star Spangled Blue, Sunny Yellow and Pink to color the boy and Oak Brown to put the spots on the dog.   I used CTMH New England Ivy for the grass and White for fish and boy.  I used Cashmere for the dog.  For the stamp, I used CTMH Sweet Life.

This card reminds me of when I was little (many, many years ago);CTMH products came from Katie's Corner.
my cousin and I would go back to our farm pond and fish.  He always caught the most fish and after every one he would yell at me "Hey Cuz, ain't this the sweetest life!"
