Today we're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The new theme is 'Anchors Aweigh.' For complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site. Don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
I had no idea what I was going to make for this challenge and I was getting worried. Then Paulette of TLC Creations posted this freebie 'Keepin it Reel gone fishin' sentiment on her blog and a light bulb went off in my head. So...inspired by the sentiment (thank you, Paulette!) here's the card I came up with.
The inside looks like this...
And another sentiment with a play on words 'Good things come to those who bait'--I love sentiments with a play on words in them!
Here are close-ups of the Magnolia Stamps images being featured:
