Best Fishes


Living along the coast, every New Year we are reminded of the maaaaaaaad (well I wouldn't fancy it) swimmers who have their first swim of the year on New Years Day.

BRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

It was Carol's birthday earlier this week and so the thought of the Brighton swimmers must have been on my mind still as I made this using this seaside plate from the Artistic Stamper.



I was tempted to colour the swimmers hair in red like Carol's, but I thought she might think I was a bit loopy.

Looking out at the snow here through the window, and uploading these images makes me shivver lol

Brilliant card! Love the colouring on the fishes. They look more like a photograph than stamping. Fabulous.
