Gone Fishing!

Hello Girls, hope you are all well.

Weather not quite as nice today as it was at the weekend, but I am not moaning, especially now I am off work until May 4th (Woo Hoo).
I have some work to do at the coming weekend (Facepainting at the Lakes Aquarium), just Saturday and Sunday, them I am not working again until May.

I made this latest card yesterday in between a bit of sunbathing, I had forgotten I had this stamped image from Sheila, I love this Sugar Nellie image, reminds me of when I used to go fishing with my dad when I was young.
Fishing was so boring, but funny at the same time. My dad wouldn't let me speak,(torture for me that!) And it was the only time HE was ever quiet as well! Lol.
I used to sit with him for hours on end, not speaking, (No Ipod's, Nintendo or iPhone then remember!!) So boring, and we caught NOTHING almost every time we went.
Those were the days, and now he has passed away I wish I was sat with him and the boring fishing rod now!

So Sugar Nellie fishing, coloured with Pro-markers. I have followed a couple of Monochromatic challenges, so tried to keep it as green as possible (and you all know how much I like green!)
Sorry about the awful photograph, the light was really bad and the camera needed charging.

The sentiment is by Personal Impressions, the flower and pins are Hobbyhouse, the leaf punch is NS and the papers are Prima Jack n' Jill.
