Sentimental Sundays - Photo Inspiration

This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is to use this gorgeous photo (see below) for inspiration (+ a sentiment). This week we are sponsored by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I love this image by Di's Digi Downloads called "Quality Time" & I coloured it with ProMarkers,  the papers are from my stash & I finished the card off with sticky ribbon, cord (recycled from a clothes tag) & the fish charm was made using a fish image with I added a bit of colour too & sprayed with "Spray & Shine".  The sentiments are from a great digi set called "Great Day to Fish" from Raindrop Echo Designs.  The design team have really excelled themselves this week so I hope you'll check out their blogs for loads more inspiration.

The challenges:
Sketch & Stash - Sketch :o)
ECP - Something for the Boys
Fab 'n' Funky - Make Your Own
Creative Inspirations - Plain & Simple
Allsorts - Inspired by Nature
Crafty Catz - One for the Men
Guylou's Inimitability - Anything Goes
Paperminutes - Water
MyGrafico - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Make Your Own Embellishment

 Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.  I've got nothing special on; shopping yesterday & some housework ( I managed to fit some crafting in too :o)  ) & today much of the same (no more shopping though!) I don't mind though I love being at home, especially after a long week at work (we had half day training on my day off last week - how cruel is that lol)
