Rocking Chair

Rocking Chairs, how can you not love them. My late husband bought me one similar to this in 1989 when our son was born. A dear friend of mine told him it was a necessity so off he went and brought one home. Still have it although it has been designated to the crawl space. Maybe to be used for a grand kid?? We will see.

This wonderful image is from Beccy's Place and is the free image for the Outlaws  Progressive Challenge provided you had participated in the last one. You can always buy it and join the challenge and receive a free stamp for the next months challenge. Too fun!

Boy Fishing

Love this stamp from Lily of the Valley, the boy  looks so peaceful doing his thing  and the weather seems to be holding :O)! Adore his hat, my grandfather wore one very similar. 

The stamped image was  coloured with Prismacolor markers, and Copics. Stampin' Up ink was used for the clouds. The card stock is  Stampin' Up and the designer paper was found in my stash. Die cuts of the dragonflies was from a Magnolia DooHicky's die and the embossing folder was called Basket Weave. The burlap was also from my stash.
