8x8 commissioned card, own photographs

Good morning Bloggers, I hope that all is well in your world...hugs

When I went in to work at teatime yesterday it was positively mild, when I came out about 10pm it was -2C and I had to scrape the car Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

My card for today is a commissioned 8x8 70th birthday card which had to feature fishing and booze! So, out came the photographs and I had a little play in PSP and PSE5 and here is the result, front and inside.





I took the photograph of the anonymous man fishing on the Erewash canal at Long Eaton several years ago and used the cookie cutter tool in PSE5 to give himDie- the swirly frame.
The trout at the top inside was taken at Lathkill dale about 5 years ago and the pike at the bottom was taken at Cromford Wharf even more years ago.
Computer generated sentiments using Dauphin font, cut with Die-namics stitched fishtail die.
Fishy stamps from a very old SeeDs set and beer stamp from Personal Impressions. The customer wont see it before tonight so I hope she likes it!  :o)

Wonderful card Jackie, inside and out. You are right about the temperatures, it really is up and down at the moment. Great to read that you have a new sofa and it does sound like a very comfy one. Hope you are keeping well. Tracey x
