Hook, Line & Sinker


Firstly i must apologise for the 'The Boring Bit' i have had to add to my blog, but it seems that a couple of people are taking my ideas and using them, without my permission, even though i now paint my images with my name on them.
We had a lovely Saturday, we had lunch with son's best friend, her mum and brother, then we went to an Epiheny at their church, where the kids dressed as kings and queens and  played games. Yesterday my OH had the job of putting all the Lego kits together that son had got for Xmas and Birthday presents !!!

For todays card i've used a new stamp and sentiment, that i got in the Sir Stampalot sale - i thought the stamp would be versatile, as i could use it for men's cards as well, by hanging a fish from the line. For a change, i decided to hunt out my kraft card, as i feel it was a better backing for the fabby BG papers. I've embossed the plainer bits of paper, to lift them.
