Holy Carp it's sketch Tuesday!

Welcome to the always fun, never boring, Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones!. I am absolutely loving this new, hilarious set called "Holy Carp". It has so many fantastic sayings that are perfect for that guy in your life. Just look at the face on that fish!
I actually made this card for my Dad's birthday coming up this weekend. He loves to fish but rarely comes home with the "big one!" I think he and my husband just talk about the HUGE fish that barely got away, over and over again...I'm sure you know the one.

We have our last sketch by Jen Del Muro (sniff, sniff) for you to try this week. Jen has been amazing and I have had so much fun with her sketches and creative genius this month.
