TO CATCH A BIG FISH!............................

Morning all!

Hope you are all well on this glorious Sunday morning!, sun is shining even though it's a tad chilly brrrrrrr.
Very early today due to in the In-Laws coming for Sunday lunch and I have a tone to do before they descend on me!
So today's card is a stamp again I have add a while and never inked ( such a naughty girl ! ) and I think it's fab for a older boy. It's another Sugar Nellie stamp which I adore and I got very excited yesterday when my new Sassy Stamps arrived, but sadly cannot play with them until Wednesday boohoo. Spent last night mounting them onto E-Z Mount while watching the X-Factor, what did you think?. Thought Tracy, Mary and Matt were fantastic, Cher and Katie sang little better and Aidan was slightly disappointing :o(. Love the song Aidan sang, but think it was just to big for him. And Wanger just makes me smile LOL!

Enough about the X-Factor, This handsome chap is going into the following Challenges :-
CES # 8 ~ Male themed card
Paper Cutz # 63 ~ Anything Goes

To catch a Big Fish ~ Sugar Nellie ~ Funky Kits

Your an early poster today Vicky!
This is gorgeous, I struggle with boy cards, sometimes I make them a bit childish when they are for a grown up boy, but this is perfect, very grown up. Papers again are so nice and have you used a bit of blue cord, its so nice. Debbiex

Fab card, I have this stamp & love it, but don't have occasion to use it very often. Like the way the spotty backing paper echoes his belt. Didn't get to watch x factor lst night as I had to take my youngest out to a fundraising party of a group she has just joined - but it was dreadful, so cliquey, no-one looked at us, let alone spoke! She said she wanted to go after 15 mins, we'd much rather have been at home! Enjoy your lunch xx

Fab as always Vicky. I need to buy myself a thesaurus so I can find some more adjectives instead of using the same ones all the time!! Loving X Factor too but, as a scouser, I've got to back Rebecca. Wagner makes me feel a bit sick :o{
