Hello everyone...

Was driving along today down a street called Munroe street and it is lined with trees and really quite pretty especially since it is in town and the street is filled with parked cars...but today I never saw is blowing quite strong and as I turned into the street.. the leaves..thousands of them just blew across the road...really quite beautiful..all those gorgeous Autumn colours and they floated over and under the car..sigh..I love Autumn...

Anyhow..we are not here for Autumn leaves and deep emotional bliss..we are here for a  new card using another fabulous image from STAMPFAIRY 

Barry Fishing 5 

Now that is a real fisherman...bear!....sailing all alone across the vast Seas and all he got for his trouble is an old boot..

I googled gumboots and this was the best shrunk it down...coloured it up...and fussy cut it out..added beads along the bottom and used my Friskars wave punch.

And the side view...Barry all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and the sky papers I have had forever from  Bird..added a good luck sentiment and this card is on it's way to a man who is going fishing for 3 days and giving his wife some peace..[her words not mine]..I would never think like that..[ahem]..

So there we go...Friday today..[end of mine ]so starting to enjoy it..I have Easter eggs on hand.. for inspiration of course.. as I have Easter cards to get on with.

Challenges to enter..
