Hooked

I've been playing with my Woodware stamps again, this time it's 'Huge Fishing'.  I live in the Test Valley, not far from the River Test which is quite famous for it's fishing, so I thought this would be a good image for me.


I've paper pieced the letters with papers from the Authentique Suave collection and kept things very simple.

I have decorated the inside of my card with the same papers.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations Challenge 79 - Anything Goes/Masculine
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - For the Boys
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge 6 - CAS
Crafting by Designs Challenge - Just for Boys!
Crafty Creations Challenge 257 - Keep it Simple
The Male Room Challenge - Retirement
Crafty Little Fairies Challenge - One for the Boys
Crafting for all Seasons Challenge 71 - Sentiment as Focus

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
