My time to Craft Dt Challenge #264 - Hobbies.

Good morning! We have another great Challenge at My Time to Craft - Hobbies! What hobbies do you and your family enjoy? DIY? Birdwatching? Sewing? Video gaming? Ballroom dancing? Whatever it is, make something to celebrate it!

Where I live a lot of people go fishing in the River Lea, and I have made a retirement card for one of my neighbours who spends hours by the riverside with his rod and line. He says it is so peaceful.


I have used this adorable image from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers. In fact, the sentiment and papers also came from LotV!

I added Glossy Accents to the lad's wellies and float, and Wink of Stella glitter to the water. The baker's twine is from stash, and I hung a little fish charm from the bow.

Go and see the various creations of my teamies, you will definitely be inspired, there are some lovely makes on show! Then join in the Challenge and tell us all about your favourite Hobbies!

Thanks for looking, and have a fun weekend!

love Mags B x

Lovely card, adorable image and I love your little hanging charm.
My husband has spent many, many years fishing along the river lea and as a child I used to swim in it but I bet you couldn't now lol.
