I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Double Challenge Card

This card is for two challenges:-
  1. Polly Craft Monday Challenge #20 - sketch with added theme of food and drink
  2. Dare U2 Digistamp #18 - Distressing
This is another birthday card for my Dad, this time from my kids. I know I have "stretched" the theme of food and drink a little but fish are food!!!! I don't distress papers much so decided to do a little ink distressing using cut'n'dry foam to the image.

Image: "Jim fishing" from DigiStamp Boutique
Paper: K&Co
Sentiment: Elzybells
Medium: Promarkers
Card candy from stash
