Here is my card for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. This week we are headed to Diddem Daddum to help Willy Waddum win the annual fishing tournament. Willy has always been able catch lots of fish and and people come from far and wide to witness his uncanny fishing "abilities"! Unfortunately his luck has run out and he isn't able to catch a thing anymore! This is bad for the Diddem Daddum economy, that's for sure! If you want to read more about why, go here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...s-t528923.html
Our mission is to bring fishy stuff to the party this week. I brought a replacement fisherman. He is the latest fishing prodigy! The secret to his success?? It's the bait - he uses strawberries, not worms!
In real life, our cards are for Colton, a 10 year old boy who's been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. You can read more about Colton here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...7-post228.html or here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...n-t524801.html
We are hoping to get lots of cards mailed to Colton at his school to encourage and support him. Colton loves fishing! Hope that our fishing cards brighten his days!

Colton will love this! Those strawberries are a wonderful addition to your design! The dp is so bright and happy looking, too.

Carla, this is just too sweet! Now THAT is the kind of bait I'm talking about! None of those wiggly, squiggly worms, but a fresh, juicy strawberry instead! So creative and a perfect card for Colton!
