Grandpa's Lil' Fishin' Buddy

Good Morning Everyone. I hope you are having a great week. Here's a quick little card I made for my grandson inspired by the hat he wore when we took him to Animal Kingdom last week. The hat came from Bass Proshop and had "Grandpa's Lil' Fishin' Buddy" on it. He was so proud of his hat and every time someone commented on it he would grin ear to ear. I think my husband also enjoyed the comments! I'm going to make my son's favorite meal for him pick up on his way home from work so Kim doesn't have to cook. We'll give him the card to give to Kenny Michael along with some little trinket we have picked up for him along the way. I talked to Kim last night and she said they are getting into a routine and things are really pretty good. The babies aren't fussy and Kenny Michael is a big help and not jeolous at all. It's tough being 4 years old, being the center of attention and all of a sudden have to share the attention...I know because I was 4 when my brother was born. Every chance I got I would either pinch him, poke his eyes or pull his ears.Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.25 x 4.25 Square Note Card
Copic Markers
Image: Popcorn The Bear
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots
Punch: EK Dotted Scallop Edge
Font: Computer Generated-2Peas Goofball
Accessories: Scor Pal, Craft Yarn, Heart Button
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Other Cardstock: Coredinations

That's it for today. If you haven't already, be sure to leave a comment for the Cutting Cafe Give Away. I'll be drawing the winner Friday morning, not only for the Cafe's files but for the project I made with them as well. Scroll down for details! Thank's for stopping by, enjoy your day and I'll see you next time!
