Hello Everyone...another glorious Spring and nearly too hot day...but the winds are light and have done a bit of gardening this afternoon before the tea time rush...

The dog [Harry] lays out there gasping and panting in the hot sun and I just shake my head at him as he will not move until it is unbearable..

Today is Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights...a place to showcase some of Wendy's gorgeous cute images...and this week I was able to play with Fishing Donnie .. AND recycle at the same time..I love it when that happens.

There is sweet Donnie and he has caught himself a little beauty...

No DP's on this card either...just blue card stock for the sky...glitter card for the Sea...and ripped  Kraft for the sand...and I added a wave die in white.

Donnie is coloured with Faber Castell pencils but his hat and pants with a blue copic and pencils for shading...his fish is coloured with silver and gold gel pens and his fishing basket and starfish with button from my stash.

The clouds were made with a MB die.. and I used the plastic tray from my packets of chocolate fish...and you all thought I just wanted the chocolate fish..well there you go...a method in my indulgence.[I'm such a fibber...I needed those fish]

I added white card behind some of the clouds..

And the side view...decorated inside to match.

Challenges I would like to enter....

Love to Create  [2 dies and sparkle]

Sisters of Craft  [Anything goes]

Stempelgarten challenge  [sweets packaging] coincidence

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping choccie fish or pixie caramels tonight..I'm into Bananas at the know, I'm such a worry.

See you tomorrow..

Lovely little beach scene, love the clouds and the fishing basket!
Enjoy the lovely spring weather...hope Harry doesn't get tooo hot...why do dogs do that? I have to drag mine indoors on a hot day, she'll bask in the sunshine until she's gasping for breath if I let her!

What a funny card and great idea of recycling... but unfortunately it's really no packaging for some sweets and treats like we were asking for with our challenge theme. Would be great to see you again, joining one of our next challenges at Stempelgarten.

Not heard of chocolate fish but I'm sure they must have been worthwhile as those clouds look fabulous! You've created a wonderful scene for your little fisherman. It was nice to "see" you over on my blog. I think I will put a picture of Halle on the Make It Monday DT blog to share. I haven't checked it for a long time.
