Gone Fishin

I've decided to make a few men's cards, I like making them and they are nice to have waiting for when needed. This lili of the valley stamp, with the little boy fishing called boys fishing ,is a great stamp because we all know a bloke that fishes . The sentiment is from a real old See D stamp set called fish tales. The fabulous embellishment,fish and net , is part of a topper set from Hobby craft. They have a new range of topper sets,good quality and only cost £1 , I bought several and will buy more!
The papers are We R Memory Keepers , travel light 6x6 pad. The ribbon is from my stash. I've coloured with promarkers and edged with brown chalk ink.

Simon says : put a stamp on it (use a stamped image )

I've not felt too well lately and my Husband has been off work,so that accounts for my lack of blogging. I have made several cards and I'll post them at a later date. Just got a new Joanna Sheen cd rom, Faye Whittaker collection, I've wanted this for some time and as it's reduced this month I treated myself. The images are delightful.
Going to Ness Gardens, Wirral, today with my Mum, lots of well known gardeners from TV and radio will be there to answer questions. The gardens there are beautiful and there will be plants for sale. It's early morning and the sun is shining a pleasant day in the offing I think.
Hope you have a good day too. janex
