Fishing for a Happy Birthday

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been so far? I went back to work on Monday and that evening when I got in I had the most  awful headache it was so bad I couldn't do anything so I have got a bit behind with my crafting and commenting.

On Tuesday I felt better and I made this card for a friend's birthday. He likes fishing so it has a fishing theme.


I have had this Forever Friends image for a while now it is so nice to know someone who will appreciate it. I started by making the background I stamped a variety of stamps with Perfect Medium and they were then heat embossed with a metallic green powder. Finally I inked over the page with two shades of blue distress ink. 


I have a memory box die set that comes with a tree, two owls and some leaves they are fun to use. 


Here is the cute little bear who looks rather like he might go to sleep.


At the moment this is my favourite Happy Birthday stamp it fits so well into my Spellbinder matting and basics dies making the mats easy to make.


I hope my friend likes the little scene I have created. 

I would like to enter the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz this week the theme is "Birds".
I would also like to join in with Pixie's Snippets Playground weeks 178 and 179.

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
