8x8 commissioned 50th birthday

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs

Glad to know the forecast is for dry tomorrow, I am off to Mercia Marina to see my daughter and her partner singing in the last Bandstand Busk of the season!

I was asked by a work friend to make a large card for a fisherman, and it had to have bubbles. I think the bubbles were to represent booze as well as water LOL. Luckily I had some of my old photographs which I had taken some years ago! 

Basecard is 8x8 Papermania blank.
Own photograph taken on the Erewash Canal at Long Eaton around 6 years ago.
Framed by my very good friend PatEssex (Docrafts). 
Iprinted it onto my usual linencard from The Range.
"Bubble" words printed onto same card in MS Word, then cut with Die-namics stitched circle dies.
Fish stamped with SeeD's stamp for a very old SeeD's set with Memento London Fog.
Glossy Accents bubbles.
The inside is too personal so I am not showing it :o)
