sweet tooth?

well, maybe for a salmon:) i know a bit unconventional. i live on the edge of the universe when it comes to mail delivery and i haven't received all of my goodies to share yet. soooo...i came up with this. a muse has the new, fantastic blackberry and paprika notecards. i just love these yummy colors! i also used the new black polka dot sheer ribbon and the new BITE ME! i'll be using that one alot!!

this card reminds of my dad, he was an avid fisherman. if you ever meet me, you'll probably never believe that as a kid/teenager we camped my WHOLE summer vacation up in the okanogans. if we weren't doing that , we were fishing in the "hole" in deception pass on whidbey.
looking back i have great memories, at the time it drove me crazy! all of my friends were off doing what i thought was normal girly stuff:) a few years back, i was telling my sil about my childhood, i thought she was going to have stroke, couldn't wrap her brain around the fact that i pretty much lived like a park ranger. a childhood i think she wanted;) now, i love lipgloss and my nordy's but i can clean and bait a fish with the best of them:)

thanks for letting me share a muse and a memory!
