Birthday Fishes!

Tomorrow is my wonderful hubby's birthday & when I saw this image from Anne Fenton  I knew it was the one for him. When we lived in the city Bill created a beautiful oasis in our backyard with a big pond, waterfall, patio & cedar gazebo. His pride & joy were the "fishies" that lived happily in the pond all summer & in tanks in our basment in the winter. I think the hardest part for him when we moved to the cottage was leaving his pond & his koi behind! The young couple that bought our house were very excited about taking over the care of said pond & fish but Bill just wasn't sure they would love them as much as he did! LOL We have plans to build a pond here at the lake but until that time comes I thought maybe these little fishies would tide him over! The image as I said is one from Anne Fenton at the freebie challenge on the Outlawz site, colored with prismacolor pencils & OMS, papers are Basic Grey, ribbon is from my (huge) stash & the manly bling is Recollections. Thanks for stopping by....hope you have a great week....me, I have tons of birthday cards to make....Sept. is a big time birthday month in my family!

1. Digi Haven.....fins or feather
2. Dude Time Doodles.....2 shades of blue
