I've had a lovely wee break, didn't go anywhere and didn't do anything, except a bit of craft and some cooking for the freezer, new neighbors are moving in down the back house, a 24 year old with FOUIR KIDS..I have nothing to say on that subject, I must learn to be kind and give her /them the benefit of the doubt..[Hmphf..]
So onto todays challenge over at Little Red Wagon and our lovely JAN is our hostess and she has made it quite clear..ANYTHING OUTSIDE.. projects...not indoors..
So who do you think I have heaps of fun with outside...Barry of course..and we went fishing..
I coloured my little friend with pencils..I'm so comfortable using pencils with him..
There he is, looking quite surprised that a fish is on his line..lol..
I found this die in my stash from who knows where, and die cut it out and added coconuts
by punching with a hand held punch some small circles..
Also die cut extra fish, coloured then and squeezed them into the bucket where I had made a slit..
Has all my components together, and notice I cut Barry's little island off by his feet and gave him a bigger beach to fish from..
Used my Nuvo drops for the foam on the waves and highlight on my critters with white gel pen.....
And a appropriate sentiment for Barry, as he always looks surprised..
So added clouds and sun, seagulls and a crab...
And the crab is helping by carrying a fish..
Such a fun time I had making this card, I just love Barry with all his fun
expressions which are always the same...
So there we go, if you have outdoor projects and want to share,
just pop over HERE and you will be good to go..
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow..

Oh wow Chrissy this is fabulous, Barry, as always looks quite bemused by it all, love the scene you created for the little sweetie. I panicked for a minute there, thought you'd cut his sweet little head off hahaha.
Stay chilled, the newbie neighbours may just be like the Von Trapps......eeeeeekkkk :))
A cute and fun little scene featuring cuddly little Barry- love all the details- especially the fish in the bucket!
You put so much love-of-detail into your projects, and it shows. Your card is fantastic, as always. Have fun with the new neighbours, 4 kids at that age is a lot.... Have a great day, hugs, Valerie
Barry is a favourite of mine too Chrissy, I actually found a folder full of him and his playmates at the weekend so I have printed a few off ready to play with. That's a fabulous scene and I love the ingenuity of the hand hold punch bits as coconuts. I know what you mean about your new neighbour. We have a new development in the village, all the massive 5 bed houses are built and sold first, followed by social housing. A new resident of one of them registered at the surgery on Monday, she's aged 18 with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. I have no words either!! xx
Brilliant scene you created for Barry,you have some brilliant dies for every occasion
You've created a gorgeous scene for that lovely Barry.
Mmmn yes four kids so young but hey you never know they may be ok. Love Barry and his fishing gear such a cute card. Love Alison x
