Just a Little Bite please

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Although the wind was a little too nippy for my liking today, it was still a lovely day and even more so as I got to pop around to see Sue and browse through her large amount of surplus crafty bits.  Managed to find a few bits for future creations and had a catch up with Maz. On leaving popped to Grimsby Crafts to drop off another class creation for the future and Matt then purchased me my Easter Egg (nope not chocolate, but another round the page punch), so had a coffee with Lynn and then headed home.

Now I had spent a couple of days colouring images in the sunshine, but found this extremely difficult to then match the papers to the colours I had used.  I am so use to working the other way around.  So spent this evening, placing the images already created onto cards, and also then created four more cards, with the images not coloured - so that I can sit in the sunshine tomorrow (fingers crossed) and be able to colour the image to match the papers on the card itself, so much more my style.

So here is one of the little guys that I coloured up in the sunshine.

He is a LOTV image, and such a natural looking fisherman.  I used a base green card and contrasting colour and some very old male papers from my stash, not really neglected, they just come out every time I need to do some of the male cards for the household.  I have used a MS edge punch and my nestie ovals and oval scallops.  I have added one of my little fish charms to this card.

Here is a close up of the little chappie concentrating for that very special fish


I would like to say thank you to those of my visitors who left me such lovely comments and get well wishes recently, much appreciated and we are all now feeling much better.  Whilst on this subject, get well wishes to Jane too.

I would like to enter this little creation into the following challenges
InStyle Stamps - Colour Challenge
Tuesday Throwdown - Brads or eyelets

Hugs
Kate
