Happy birthday to my hubster!

This post, however, is all about the hubs. He is considering himself officially old today as he will be applying for Social Security, which means I will tease him about his age, unmercifully, for the next nine months (until I also turn SS age! LOL). Anyway, when I saw this stamp set, called Holy Carp!, by Skipping Stones Designs, I HAD to have it! It is positively PERFECT for my fishing-loving husband. He fishes every single day he is able which means (now that he is basically retired) every day it is "warm enough", according to him. :) Works for me!

He is a fly fisher so he rarely sits in a boat anymore, but I loved the images in this set and had to use them. The sentiments, however, could not be any better. Each of these is an individual stamp so I combined them to make my message.

I stamped the image twice and colored them. Then I cut the fisherman out of one of the images and attached with foam tape for dimension. I colored his "outfit" the same as what hubs usually wheres when he goes fishing.

For a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to the water to make it look really "wet" and for added texture.

Thanks for coming by today. I'll likely be spending a lot of my day helping someone look up all the info he needs to fill out paperwork. ;)
