A Fish Story

Thomas Jack and I headed to my hometown of Muscatine(right on the ole Mississippi River) to see Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Clay and Aunt Shanna. The highlight for Thomas was going fishing with Grandpa and Uncle Clay. My brother caught a 4 pound bass, the biggest he has caught on the river. Thomas also caught a fish. They were gonna pull a fast one and tell everyone Thomas had caught the "big one".

This was the 4 pound fish my brother Clay caught!
Thomas wearing his favorite attire as of late, Iowa Hawkeye shirt, shorts and new Cubs cap.

My brother Clay and his catch of the day! Yes, he is very tall! (6'3")Thomas and his fish.Why isn't his life jacket zipped????

I GOt a TOP 5...LOL

I won third place on the Hero Arts blog this week!!! Go HERE to see my card.It is the one with the fern stamp.To say I was stunned is putting it mildly.The talent of the ladies on this Flickr group is amazing.I regularly browse the gallery and literally gasp at some of the creations. I may pull off an ok card occasionally, but hardly anything "gasp" worthy.

The challenge last week was to use complimentary color combinations; black and white, orange and blue, and red and green. Not colors I readily utilize, so this was a stretch for me. Go HERE to check out the HERO ARTS Flickr group. Beautiful, fun, funky stuff!!
