Welcome to the new Make My Monday bi-weekly challenge #208. Our host for this challenge, Pamela, chose hobbies for the theme. I want to thank all of you who played along with my three of anything challenge #207. I really struggled to narrow it down to the top choices and enjoyed looking at all your cards..

My husband loves to fish, but it’s just been too beastly hot to go fishing lately, even in the mornings. I made this card for him and am going to mail it so it will be a complete surprise in just a few days. When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see the wide variety of hobby cards. We’d love to see your interpretation of our hobby challenge, so don’t forget to upload it to our gallery.

Here’s my fishing fun fold card:

I’ll be uploading this card to the current Creative Creases challenge.

Since it took me quite a number of failed tries for one of my hobbies, I needed something fast. I visited Connie Stewart’s YouTube channel and found a video for this easy fun fold card. I followed all her directions and measurements, but I substituted the Gone Fishing suite of products. Happily, the bundle is back in stock. The DSP is fabulous and incorporates some of the 2023 – 2025 In Colors. I used the Pebbled Path ribbon and stamp pad, along with a touch of Wild Wheat for the lure.

The white-ish dot on the Pecan Pie flap and the fishing DSP (designer series paper) is a little Velcro closure set. The ribbon makes the flap a bit difficult to keep down, and this little Velcro thingie saves the day.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a Peachy Day!
