Something Fishy

I've had a really slow Internet connection this week due to the adverse weather so this is the first chance I've had to post a card since the weekend - good job the Olympics are on to keep me occupied. It's a request from a work colleague to make a 40th Birthday card for her kids to give their dad who's a Fisherman - I do get the strangest requests!

I remembered some old digi images I had by Cuddly Buddly called Country Gents and came up with this...

I've fussy cut the fisherman and used the patterned papers that came with the images as background. The number was made in Publisher by overlaying Word art numbers onto a snippet of the digital paper.

I've entered this into the current challenges at:

Without Words - occupations
Crafty Cardmakers - this is a man's world
Cute Card Thursday - clever cutting

Thanks for visiting
