SSInkspiration July Blog Hop!

Welcome!  You're in luck today!  I am participating in a blog hop with my fellow designers from SSInkspirations!
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 4 on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - Diana E.  Great stuff!! If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Who doesn't love a good #TBT post!? 
This week as we prepare for Stampin' Up!'s 26th Annual Convention in SLC, Utah, we're reminded that stamping has come a LONG way in those years!
Techniques have come and gone, styles have changed, and technology has made stamping a completely different industry.
What has NOT changed, is how timeless some stamp sets really are.
Here is an example!

This card was made using Fishin' from 1996!!  And @SoSocial from 2014/2015 
I love the textures and the way this set reminds me of days spent fishing with my husband.  We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary next month,  I told him he was my inspiration for the card and I just KNEW he remembered exactly what I meant by it.  
On our honeymoon we rented a boat and spent a whole day fishing.  Guess who caught the biggest fish?!?!!  Ha WASN'T him.  muah hahaha  :)

  (speaking of the hubs, he kindly pointed out that I colored this Bass to look like a Perch...oh well, I still like him)

  Our new Blendabilities make bringing water and grass to life SO simple!!  I am hooked!  (total pun intended!)

#whatagreatmoment  I completely agree :)

  1. Sitting here laughing about your husband's comment!! Love your coloring!

  2. Love it! Wish I had that set, it's from before I started up with SU! Only a man would notice the coloring of the fish - LOL!

  3. Great card, I love the color and the fish looks perfect. And the story that goes along with it is priceless.

  4. LMBO!!! I love this card! It would still be a great stamp set for today. You can never have to many fish/masculine stamp sets. Oh, and I love that you got the bigger fish. If your husband is like mine, he's probably saying, "I let her catch the biggest one!"

  5. Cute card. I love the fish jumping out of the water.

  6. Love your card and your coloring! :)
