I hope you are enjoying the Olympics, and the weather is better with you than it is here in Somerset, its been quite dark most of the morning although the sun is trying to pop out, its a lot cooler and windy again we have had some rain, and more is forecasted, last week must have been what they call a bip, hopefully that is not all the summer we are going to get.
Today's card, this is for the CD Sunday Challenge and this week it is Mainly Men, I find men's cards hard, I wonder why perhaps because its for a Man!!!!!!
I used for the image Joanna Sheens Pamela West Collection CD, I love this image and for the backing paper I used the backing paper that came with the image. I matted the image onto gold miri board.
Now for the smug fisherman I cut out the fishing man from Jolly Nation its an easy 3d card image but I think he leads his way better on a card rather than being the card.
I 3d the fish and glittered his scales, and his head, added a gold dot for his eye. Finishing off with a peel off fishing line and fish and finished off the card with peel off's around the edge and a happy birthday.
I saw the show jumping yesterday, I thought it was brilliant, OK a few horses knock a poll or two off but it was the arrangement of the jumps and the special care and attention to detail to make the jumps so lovely. I loved the way each jump had a theme, Stonehenge, Trafalgar Square, in particular. What gets me cross is that these commentators say that we will get a medal in this or that and then we fail, why do we fail because they are putting too much pressure on the competitors and not letting them do their own thing. For the host nation to be so far down the table for medals is getting a little embarrassing. Enough of my rant.
I hope today we win a gold from something.
Until we meet again I hope you are keeping well and take care
