Gone Fishing!

Evening Everyone! How are you? Have you had a good week? My son broke up for his Summer holidays today, so I've got to find a way to entertain him for a whole 6 weeks!! Any ideas gratefully received, LOL!
Now, here's a card I made a wee while ago but hadn't shared it with you until now:
Image - Digistamp Boutique coloured with promarkers.
Papers - Smirk.
Blue and Orange card - Bazzill Basics.

To make this card, I covered the most part of a card blank with blue card and then butchered a piece of paper from the 'smirk' range and used it to kinda 'piece' my card together - I don't know if you can see from the photo but there is some dimension to it IRL. So - what d'you think?

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:

For those of you interested in the fridge/freezer saga (?!?) - it was finally delivered yesterday but only after I cried!!! When the delivery men turned up with it, I popped my head out the door and said 'up here on the first floor' - only to be told that they only deliver to the ground floor!! Now I'd told the company before ordering that I was on the first floor and he'd said 'not a problem!' So - the delivery man rang his boss and put him on the phone to me and I told him what had been said but apparently it's a different company that you order from to who delivers, so he said he could either deliver it to the ground floor or they'd take it at this point, I was saying that I live on my own with a 10 year old, I'm recovering from cancer, I've not had a fridge/freezer for a week and then it all got too much and I burst into tears (what a wuss!!), so I handed the phone back to the delivery man and ran back indoors. Well, the long and short of it being that he obviously felt sorry for me cos he came up not long after and said that 'on this occasion, they'd bring it up'!! And so, I've now got a lovely pristine Bosch fridge freezer in my kitchen doing a wonderful job of keeping my food and drinks nice and cold!!
Before I go - have you seen the new release of Simply Sassy images?!? OMG - THE best ones yet, absolutely gorgeous!! I've ordered them already (v naughty!)......and have you seen the new pens from Crafters Companion? Spectrum Noir?!? What d'you think? I was hoping I might do better with these than I do with promarkers.......
Anyways, I'm off to craft before it gets too late. We're going to a summer party tomorrow at my aunt's sheltered accomodation, so that should be fun, eh!? Let's hope we get some sun! TTFN...............xx
