Lazing around on the River

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Yippee the loft/attic is now emptied and ready for the roofer to come and put a new roof on.  Only knows how long that is going to take but it will be worth having scaffolding out the front and back of the house.

Today's post is a quick card as I still have plenty of samples to finish off. I found this Popcorn decoupage set when I was rooting around looking for something else and thought it would be quite therapeutic to do a bit of decoupage.  This image always makes me smile.


Recipe

1. Cream 7 x 7 square card which I have punched the corners with X-Cut corner punch.
2. First and second layers are Core'dinations card from my stash.
3. I matted and layered the image onto cream Core'dination's card then decoupaged the images with Pinflair.
4. To finish off I added a sentiment, Card Candi and the fishing bag which I found in my embellishment box.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
