Gone Fishin!

Good Morning Blogging Friends and I hope this morning finds you well and refreshed after a good nights sleep.

Well we has some amount of rain during the night which woke me in the wee small hours, but it seems to have settled down at the moment.

Thank you one and all for your lovely comments about my previous card, I wasn't too sure about it myself, but the more I look at it, the more it grows on me.  Thinking back to what a few of you were mentioning the other day about people visiting but not leaving comments, made me have a look at my visit counter and yes I find the same thing.  It's a pity that no message is left, I feel that I miss out on a wealth of inspiration and the chance to make a new blog friend.  I love looking at new blogs, always so much to see, bit maybe it's just as well not to leave a comment if you don't like what you see.  Thankfully, I've not received any of those, everyone who does leave a message is constructive and inspiring.

So to my card today, it's for my Brother-in-Law, Jim whose birthday is quite soon;
Jim like to fish when he has a chance so I thought this lovely LOTV image would just do him fine.
It's one of their die cut images so the wonderful Bev has created the colours, and I've matched them to  First Editions J'Adore paper and co-ordination card which I've attempted to distress.  Xcut die for frames, LOTV sentiment, and to pick out the little bit of red in the paper I've introduced a red button and and some candy.  Bakers twine from The Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter this card into http://liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/anything-goes.html

Off to ge ready for work now, no rest for the wicked as they say, have a great day everyone,

Good Morning Kate,
Love it! just perfect for the occasion especially that your BIL is a fisher.
Although these images are of small boys I always think they can be used quite easily for mens cards............men will always be boys at heart!!!
I had no problem with your falling hearts at the time. The Owl with just a few is much better when I think about it.
50% of our snow has gone now we have the rain.
Have a Great Day

Good morning Kate. What a great card for your BIL who loves fishing. I was just having a little laugh to myself seeing Patricia mention the hearts that people had said the didn't like on your blog, as you know I couldn't see any I phoned Patricia asking her if she could see them to be told by her it's because I blog off my I pad. Boy did I feel better I thought I was having a senior moment. Hazel

Hi Kate,
fabulous image and so wonderfully designed too.
My hubby too like to fish, so this would be very appropriate for him.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
