Hello. Welcome. It's a lovely sunny day. Looks like my neighbor will be getting some chicks, despite the stupid hen who got up a few times and returned to a different nestbox!! We thought there was little hope they would hatch, but there are some promising noises despite mummy hen's chicken-brained navigation. Never one to count the chickens before they hatch but everything is crossed. Yes Laura, I will put up some pictures of chicks and I haven't forgotten the baby rabbits as well. Just trying to catch up after the unexpected interruption by the nasty little virus. Feeling 98% now and hoping I have seen the last of that one! Sharing a card inspired by Cheery Lynn's challenge to use Kraft. Decided it was a great opportunity to make it manly and roll out a couple of dies that I haven't had a chance to use yet.
I started with a piece of 12 x 12 kraft which had a map on it. I cut it down, distressed the edges and added some DI Walnut Stain. I cut Cheery Lynn Koi Fish in black card and Cheery Lynn Old Barn Board in black and kraft. I've coloured the fishing hooks with silver and gold Pilot markers. I found a piece of burlap which I thought would do as a fishing net and have added some silver rhinestones. The flowers are the pinwheel from Cheery Lynn BAF #3 Embellishment dies and I thought Cheery Lynn Wheat Heads die could look a bit like seaweed. If you squint a little maybe?? Some more silver rhinestones in the flower centers and a blue one for the fish's eye. I put the panel on a black base card.
