Using up some scraps! Round II Card 36

My last couple of posts have mentioned that I am sort of kitting up my scrap images, along with some bits and bobs to go with them. I have been placing them into Michael's organizational shoeboxes, and employing the careful use of an index card in between each kit.

They are very simple kits but I thought they would come in handy once I have packed up my room. I will still be able to make cards even though I might be surrounded by a sea of boxes as I am working.
Once we are at the new house, I will still try to work from the kit boxes as we will be busy unpacking, and organizing the new place. (new to me at least)

Today I am sharing a card that I made from those boxes. It is a simple fishing card, but will come in handy for a birthday card for DH or my Son-In-Law..


The image is a rub on...not sure of the manufacturer any more. It is my VOS item...many, many years old. The background DP's are snippets from my VOS snippets box . Glad I got this one made up as Rubons are so fragile and I didn't want to damage it in the move. The plastic cover was long gone, so it is amazing that it lasted unscathed this long...and transferred like a dream!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

This is a great card for a fishing man. Lucky for you that the old rubon worked so well, I have had some difficulty with old ones in the past. Your backing papers are good choice too.

The fishing theme is a great idea for masculine designs. I've seen you make quite a lot of fishing cards, but you're great at varying designs and colors, so they all look completely different.

Hi Maureen,
super man card, and just right for any fisherman.
You are a very clever and organized lady to make up those boxes for your crafting when everything is upside down in the move.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I love this fishing themed card Mo and the rub ons have kept very well and are well worth using on this card. The background papers go well too, and I like the inking round the edges to finish. x

Hi there Maureen - you sound as though you are organised and are doing really well preparing for your move!!!

I love this card, it made me smile and is a fabulous rub-on image. You did brilliantly with this, I've looked for mine before and found them with bits missing etc. They are a nightmare to store.

Hugs to you both

Sue Pxxx (and Graham)

Hi Mo, a super male themed card - great colours and I would never have guessed the topper was a rub-on. I've just had a great time reading through many of your previous posts to catch up with what you are up to. I'm so impressed with the way you are tackling your move and using up your stash - you sound so well organised and your new house looks just perfect too. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
