My grandad's birthday card!!

Hello everyone!!!! happy sunday!! it has been a gorgeous day here today. We took mo to a new park and spent ages there, there was a litttle climbing wall and rope nests and stepping logs through the woods, it was just lovely. Though the poor little man managed to get ahuge splinter in his foot at home on the decking and oh boy did he cry when we tried to get it out!!! poor thing!!!
Friday was my grandad's birthday so I had to save posting my card on here until over this weekend incase he took a peek at it!!! For this one I used one of the gorgeous boys circles over on Lily-boo's boutique.
I coloured him with my copics and popped some 3d glaze on the bull rush heads,water and the fishes to pop them out a little.
I made the background in my word programme on my computer and made some of the words bold so they stood out a little more from the rest and a little seperate sentiment to pop on top too.
I folded one corner over and added a little heart brad and bit of ribbon to finish it off and with the scraps I had left I made the inside match. I really like this one as my grandad loves fishing so the image seemed just perfect!! the only problem is my older son Ryan saw it and heis really getting into fishing now and has asked me to make hima little book with my BIA with the same image so he can record what fish he catches!!!!!! ( i have to say it is a mighty fine idea!!!!)
Right, I have happy mail to make now and oh by has it gone all dark outside all of a sudden....rain on its way me thiks!!!! at least its the end of the day!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in!!!
