My Rod and My Reel they comfort me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning to you all
I am writing this Saturday evening, whilst the OH is still out on his fishing match.  Quite apt really as it is his other birthday card and yes fishing related. I have had a lovely quiet day, no sunshine so just had to play in my craft room :)  So three creations later and now thought I had better put some of them into posts for the week.

So here is his birthday card
These papers are ace they came from Grimsby Crafts, just wonderful, although he said they were sea fish and not what he would catch.  Men you just cannot please them sometimes, all the trouble I go to!!

Quite a CAS card for me.  I also seem to have misplaced my grass die so attempted to create some reeds for my little fish to jump out of but love these tiny tiny rhinestones from the Hobby House as they are just perfect for bubbles.  

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Southern Girls - Something beginning with F - Fish or fisherman
365 Cards - I got the blues
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Hugs and Enjoy Your Day

You certainly came up with the goods for this one Kate - it's brilliant........even though they are "sea fish"! Men - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Hope he had a successful day at his fishing match. Love the bubbles.
