LOTV - Gone Fishing........


Good Morning Blogger's,

I was so excited to receive a couple of sets and this little stamp from Lili Of The Valley in the UK on Friday.  Couldn't wait to get this one inked up....... how cute is he?  I love the cap.  

I've stamped him onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured him with Copic markers.  The embellishment on the right is a fishing lure that I pinched acquired from DH tackle box.  I had to get the hook off naturally, but left some fishing line on.

This little card is for the following Challenges:

Stampin Royalty # 37 Stitching.

Misc chat.....
How was your week end? Did you do anything special?  We had Spring  weather again so I managed to do a bit in the garden.  Walshie cut the grass which was good...... He still hasn't got 100% strength in his left hand though so has to be a bit careful, we've had a couple of broken cups where he forgets !!  He can now sleep laying down instead of in a chair though the ribs are still sore, but that's a huge improvement so he's getting better.

OK that's it from me ........ Till next time.......x
