MelJen's Designs - Special Release

Hello everyone!

Today we're celebrating the life of Keith L. Smith, father of Melissa Jenkins (artist/owner of MelJen's Designs).  Melissa's father passed away a year ago today.  Melissa designed this special set to celebrate her father's love of fishing.

Here is the card I created to honor Melissa's memory of her father.

My image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I've used a little bit of stickles on the fish and hooks, and used some Glosssy Accents on the worms and bobbers...well, I think they're called bobbers.  (Can you tell I don't fish?)

Melissa is giving away the Fisher Moose image.  Go to MelJen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog to see how you can enter the drawing.  And while you're there, leave Melissa a warm hug.

Melissa, you are in my thoughts and prayers today. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamp:  MelJen's Designs - Fisher Moose, Bucket of Worms, Gone Fishing Word Art
Paper:  Doodlebug Design, Bazzill
Other:  Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, Glossy Accents, Star Dust Stickles, brown twine, brad
