very CAS

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.I will be around soon to catch up with your blogs.My stepdad cut my lawn for me yesterday and bought me a lovely new bench for my garden and then we all went out for a meal, yummy lamb roast and then lemon meringue for pudding.
A really fab family day.
So with all that i only had time to make this card.Not for any challenges, i just wanted a quick play with these stamps.
Not my best effort but hopefully i can improve for next time.
Products used are:
White card
Black card
Distress inks
Archival ink
Inkylicious stamp set - Gone fishing
Hougie board for the scoring.


I tried to get his reflection in the water but it wasn`t happening.lol
Lots of practice needed but i enjoyed messing.

And a sidways view.
And thats ya lot for today.lol
Off to work later, heaven knows what hubby and jack will get up to, i dread to think.
Enjoy the sunshine and thanks for popping by.
Hugs Coops.xx
