Best Fishes

Well another week is halway thru - life is so fast when you pass 50 you now!!  SO make the most of it if you are reading this and have not yet reached that age ha ha!  Not much happening here - the house is dead quiet as Lynne is off up to Scotland to see my Mam for a week but we are rabbit-sitting.  We have Buttons over as my son and dil are off to the Lakes for a few days so hope the weather stays nice for them all.

This card was made a few days ago but only just getting around to posting it on here - my neck has been very sore the last few days (don't think the cold weather helps at all) and sitting at the PC is not easy for me.  I am trying to pluck up courage to call my consultant's PA to arrange an appt for op - wish I could just pick the phone up and do it right now but it is such a huge step fo go for elective surgery if it is not totally necessary - but I know it IS necessary for me.

Using the fabulous Best Fishes stamp I won in Sugar Nellie's blog (for no apparent reason) I coloured him with my Promarkers and used BP from Funky Hand's Colour Me Happy (Jovial Man) and embellishments I also won in a blog candy draw.  Not at all happy with the outcome of this card but hey ho I can't be good all the time......I am entering it into The Sugar Bowl and Totally Papercrafts Stick a Number On It.
