Moon Lake Rowboat

The Moon Lake set is another favorite from the Occasions Catalog.

I stamped the image and colored with my 
Aqua Painter and ink smooshed into the cover of the inkpad.

This is one that looks better from a distance. LOL!

This sure brings back memories of good times in a rowboat.
When my brother and I were kids and we vacationed at a lake,
all we had was a rowboat.  
One year we pooled our money and rented an little motor.
It was still more fun to row.

This is beautiful, Bonnie. I love your watery image framed by perfectly scored lines. Sweet to hear your memories, too.

Looks like a dream! Remember, they always say that true art should be viewed at a distance!!! This is true art but it also looks great up close too. Love your card Bonnie.

Such a lovely card, and what fun memories too. I wanted this set but didn't get it before I went on my stamp purchase moratorium. I'll just enjoy what you've made with it instead.

Great masculine card - the hardest type for me to do. I really like your use of the natural cardstock for the base - it suits the image perfectly.

What wonderful memories Bonnie! I love this card, so pretty is your image watercolored up. I just love the scene, who doesn't love vacationing by the lake?! Especially as a kid! Hugs, Brenda
