Need urgent help re words for a card
 
Hiya girls

I need your experience please do any of you have any funny verses for the inside of a card that I have done along the fishing theme please, my Nana has asked me to make a card for her son-in-law who is seriously into fishing, which I have done this afternoon, and very pleased I am with it, will be posting it later, but she likes a good verse and I wondered if anybody had any or could point me in the right direction for a funny fishing verse!!!! if there is such a thing

Many thanks

Alex xx

The only humourous card sayings I know for fishing are about cod. Unless the recipient does ocean fishing and jigs for cod, I don't know how to tie that in. :)

Oh see that has made me have a good giggle, he he he

Could you use "hook, line and sinker" somehow

It is all I can think of

Mahloumel 01-28-2007 04:08 PM

"Just dropping you a line to send you a birthday cod" or something like that. I've also seen Christmas Cod cards (had to resist a Christmas cod stamp set recently!).

there's always the popular "fishing you a....." happy birthday etc. Along the cod lines: heard you were ______(sick, having a birthday etc) so I made you a cod

I did one for my uncle that on the outside said "Fishing you..." and on the inside said " A crappie birthday!" Of course a crappie is a kind of fish! He really liked it.

Have you tried the thread here about sayings for the inside of cards? It is very good and filled with some funny ones, too.

Alex, maybe a poem.....I wrote this poem for you.....

Happy Birthday to you, another year has passed.
We hate to say but you are aging fast!

Your getting older, but the fishing's still good
Celebrate this day like you know you should.

Blow out your candles and make one big wish
That special dream to catch a great big fish.

If by chance your birthday wish should fail...
We promise to believe your fisherman's tale!





Your birthdays keep coming and we know ,

This is how it should read, forget that last sentence, I forgot to delete it.

Early to bed,
Early to rise.
Fish all day,
Make up lies.

I used to make and sell a lot of decorative/folk art painting and a very good seller was a rustic wooden board with some small wooden fish on it with the line
"fish tremble at the very mention of my name"
(for the card you might rather put, fish tremble at the very mention of your name)

Rush'd Lady 02-17-2007 02:34 PM

there used to be a thread here with some quirky sayings on it, I'll see if I can find it for you and post it . . . :)

"...We promise to believe your fisherman's tale!"

Thanks so much - perfectly fits my son who has to take his annual fishing trip to Alaska (as well as fishing here)

For some reason I missed this when it started...
Here is a card I have had in my favorites for quite a while. It is not exactly for the inside of the card, but I thought it had some great lines. In fact, I sort of did my own version on a computer for a card front. It is too late for the original question, but maybe some one will enjoy it.

Regarding Big Shot/Cuttlebug
 
What are your very favorite accessories (specific dies, folders, etc.) and what is your favorite place (on line) to order them?

birdbathlady 02-18-2007 11:21 AM

Ooops, sorry. The message about Big Shot ended up in the wrong place Oh for a delete button!!

Give a man a fish
And you feed him every day
Teach him to fish
And you get rid of him every weekend! :mrgreen:
