Best Catch with Let it Ride

My brother recently purchased lake property in
Wisconsin, which prompted my purchase of the
Best Catch set on page 20, with the coordinating 
Catch of the Day dies (page 191).  This product combination
reminded me so much of the fun we had out on the
lake (see story below).

The trees came from the Let It Ride set (page 154), birds
and grass from High Tide (page 152) and water and
shore from Waterfront (page 125).  I ran the focal
image through the Subtles 3D Embossing folder, layering
it on to some Neutrals Designer Series Paper (page 168).

OK, so on to the story.

Even a dead pontoon boat in the middle of
the lake was a hoot.  It was our first voyage and the
motor was a bit cranky throughout.  Eventually, it
died and would not restart.  First my BIL got out to try
to tow it (with the raft).   Mind you, he'd had a collapsed lung
 about a month prior.  He could barely budge the thing.  So 
my sister, and brother jumped into the lake,
to swim, push and ultimately walk the pontoon
back to the dock.  The rest of us had very comfortable
seats, taking pictures and cheering them on.

Oh gosh. I think that is a boater’s worst fear. I am glad you were comfortable though! I love your card! said...

I love this card, but your story!!! Love getting insights into family. Thanks, Jackie!
