Around The World on Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  

We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe who get together monthly for a blog hop. We showcase Stampin' Up! products and hope that our projects inspire you to get stamping!😉

Our challenge this month was to "Let's Go On An Adventure".  That was all the info we had and we had the creative freedom to go wherever with our ideas.  

Since I was at the trailer and had limited supplies, I opted to go on a fishing adventure with the Gone Fishing Bundle.  The greeting is from the Fun on Wheels Bundle.

I purchased this bundle because it reminded me of years gone by, and the sweet times when I would take my young sons fishing on the local brooks and river.  

Honestly, I treasured the one-on-one time spent with them in the quiet beauty of the surrounding nature, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

Their sheer joy when they caught a tiny trout was amazing...still makes me smile to think of it.....(and a bit teary as they are grown men with families of their own now)

Ok enough of my blabbering on is my card: 

This is a fabulous bundle for all the guys (and gals) in your life who love to fish!
