Friday Sketchers - 49, and Son's birthday

I used this weeks lovely sketch from Friday Sketchers to make my son's birthday card.
I am afraid I didn't do the sketch justice and am not really happy with the outcome.
My excuse is that I had to make 3 cards in a hurry last night. His birthday is today.
I feel a naughty Mum for not making more of an effort this year. But then, he won't inspect it very closely.
It'll be 'Thanks Mum' and give me a kiss and be more interested in his present, I hope!!!

He is a mad keen fisherman and I had already coloured this image and I worked around that. My dear blogging friend Chrissie (one very talented lady) kindly sent me some stamped images a while ago this being one of them. Thank you once again Chrissie :-)

A closer look at the net of fishes. Probably more than he caught on Saturday :-)

Got a funeral to go to this morning, so must dash.

Thank you for the lovely comments my friends. I have had a lot on lately and have neglected my fave pastime, visiting your fantastic blogs.
I hope to get back to doing so soon :-)

Irene, I think the card is lovely. I especially like the hoard of fish - certainly more than a lot of fishing men or women or children bring home!!! Best wishes, Kym xxx
