Gone Fishing

Hi,

Wow, it was so nice to see a bit of sun over the weekend for a change - the river bank still looks like a bog, but at least i can't grumble, as i feel so sorry, for those poor people in Somerset.

Today's image is an LOTV one, that i knew would be ideal for Alan's mum's husband (i'd call him his stepdad, but Alan's mum seems to think she's Elizabeth Taylor !!), i've had a bit of a tidy up of the craft / computer  room (well i've basically got to do it, as Alan wants to work from home more) and i forgot about these papers and i had them in 6x6 and 8x8 !!, they are : Dovecraft - 'Masculine', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Mixed Circular Sentiments', twine and charm is from my stash.


The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challlenge is  'Anything Goes With Twine Or String'

Crafty Cardmakers - where Challenge No: 109 is 'This Is A Man's World'

Sweet Sketch 2  - where they have a twist - pick a Sketch and i chose '03' and Paper Piecing - i have paper pieced the hat, jumper and wellies

A Little Bit Crafty - where the Challenge is 'Man Up !'

Lili Of The Valley - where the Challenge is 'Name That Tune ! ' - I've gone for 'Easy' By 'The Commodores' and i went for this, as the words say 'Easy Like Sunday Morning' and Alan's mum's husband likes going fishing every Sunday, when it's not raining !!

Moving Along With The Times - where the Challlenge is 'Birthday Boys'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
