Little Boy Blue

What awful weather we're having over in Northern Ireland. Today is very muggy and thunder storms with torrential rain. I suppose the only good thing to come from all this rain is that we don't need to worry about watering the garden- God has saved us the bother!!

I have 2 cards to share today. The first card uses a really cute image by the very talented Phindy. Phindy has recently released a series of 'summer cuties' as digital stamp images and they really are sooo cute!

3) Paperplay challenges- Week28- Sketch by Sandie Dunne which I used today
4) Digital Tuesday Challenge 68- Happy Birthday

2nd Card uses a stamp called 'Stitch' by Leanne Ellis- Sugar Nellie (A gift from my lovely friend Elaine.. thought you'd like to see it being used!!)

Many hugs,


  1. Trish, this is so cute! Wonderful coloring and I love that fishing line and perfect sentiment - very clever!
    Thanks so much for playing along at Phindy's Place!

  2. Two gorgeous cards Trish.
    I love the little guy fishing, he's so cute and the blue papers are perfect.
    On the leanne ellis card, those papers are fab, the sentiment is so perfect, and your floral arrangement is beautiful.
    The weather here in the North of England is pretty terrible too. It's still warm and humid but lashing down with rain and really windy.
    Hope you are well Trish.
    Take care
    Love Elaine xx
