Wrap up Warm for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the

with the theme of 

Wrap Up Warm
something with knitting or woollies

chosen by the very talented Andie, now don't forget to hop over to see the rest of the design teams fabulous inspiration and here is my inspiration for this challenge
This is as you can probably guess another birthday card for a male in the family and yes he is a fisherman too.  
The base layer is a cream pearlescent paper and the top papers I am sorry they are so old I cannot remember but it was a male stack.  The image is LOTV.  The nestie is the smaller of the grand nestie ovals and scallop ovals. The image plate has been airbrushed with G82 to create the lovely soft edging, little pearls are from the Hobby House, not airbrushed on this occasion.
Matt very kindly created me another fabulous little fishing net for my fish charm, doesn't he do them so well, love him to bits for his talent :) and other reasons too of course.....
The image has been coloured in copics and gently blended to give a woollie look to the jumper.

Well I have just got back from taking Matt's car for it's MOT, hope it sails through as he has gone to work in my car.  Thank heavens for Mike's car, as he drove me back so I did not have to walk in this bitter cold, so as the challenge says, I put my woollies on and wrapped up warm.  So now that I am back because I got up soooooooooooooo early it was dark outside, I can now spend the day preparing for Sunday's card class at Grimsby Crafts and playing, well okay have some DT cards to do too, as well as a leaving card, for a lady at work, but looking forward to my day, as the cough is now on it's last legs and I feel so much better.  Thank you for all the get well wishes :)
