well no christmas card today ~ a birthday card for my nephew, who has fallen in love with fishing!


used the fab sketch over on SPARKLE DREAMS CHALLENGE #2 (EXTRA ~ AUTUMN COLOUR/LEAVES)



365 CARDS~DAY 244~ INSPIRATION FROM THE NEW LOOK BLOG (COLOURS AND THE AUTUMN LEAVES)


CARDS FOR MEN#22 ~ANYTHING GOES



OLDIE BUT A GOODIE#5 ~ WELL THIS LITTLE EDWIN IS SURE AN OLD STAMP GATHERING DUST!!!




used prima papers, magnolia edwin fishing and leaves stamps, daisy and dandelion word stamp, elzybells fishing words, nestabilities oval dies and fish buttons from my stash.




two more views of the card



still feeling icky ~ but i guess most people have their first winter cold right now........ plenty of soft tissues and hot drinks is in order!! ..thankfully it is friday so no school runs, after today ,until monday!
