A Big Fish Story

The purpose of  Teapot Tuesday's Challenge 153  is to create a card, inspired by the  story that our "mudder"   has provided for us.  It is a Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty!   To understand the inspiration story, you must check it out at our challenge for Teapot Tuesday  because  the mad tea party is still going!

This is my card and story for this challenge:

This is a fish tale  so listen carefully.  

 You may have not known that Golfsalot has a brother called Twosportsinone.  You see, he has a very long name too, just like his brother!   He is a very busy but wants to make sure he get’s his time for sporting into his schedule.  He is also a bery brilliant man so  so in keeping with his name, he tries to multitask and usually tries to do two sports in one.   Hence, the story…

 wanted to have some fun.

Fishing was his game,
but his golfing was very lame.

But  much to his surprise,
And right before his eyes,

He saw what he had done…
He scored a “hole in one”!

Tip of the Day:  You can make shadows in the water, such as  trees, by turning the tree stamp upside down, masking the trees and stamping the upper part of the stamp over the water.  It works well to use a very light shade of grey and then stamp off the paper first to make it even lighter before stamping the water
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card and jump in and play along!
