Little Boy Fishing.....

Afternoon All! Well, the weather's certainly taken a turn for the worse in the UK!! We had a few days of beautiful, warm sunshine and now it's really cold and windy!! Anyway, back to the reason I'm here LOL! It's my turn to post over on the Just Some Lines blog today and here's the card I made for the occasion:

Image - Just Some Lines coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - October Afternoon.
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics.
Other - Twine from stash and Buttons from either Hobbycraft or QVC.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
And that's about it! I hope you like my card. I called my post over on JSL 'Run with your mistakes' because I printed the image out on the wrong paper, so when I coloured it in with my SNs the colours were bleeding really badly. I managed to correct most of the mistakes with my blender but some of them looked awful and it nearly went in the bin but then I decided to cut the image out and put it on a paper pieced background and it ended up looking better than the coloured one!
Can't believe it's been nearly a week since I last posted - I don't know where the time's going lately. I had some exciting news this week, so keep an eye out on Wednesday!! Anyway, I've been out visiting my Aunt, who's in hospital at the moment, so I'd better get on cos I've got nothing done yet! Hope you all have a good weekend. TTFN......................xx
