Hi everybody,

How can I talk about sport on a Sunday ?????? It's easy, it's time for a new challenge, challenge 101, at Robyn's Fetish. And this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo; And the winner will be able to spend his/her $21 voucher on the Bugaboo store.

I have made my card using a model, I found in one of my magazine..... Unfortunately for me, all the measurement were wrong....So it took me ages to make it....Lol!!!!! I have coloured my little Bugaboo "Fishing frog" with my Spectrum Noir in the following colours.

Frog : LG3, CG4 and 43
Hat : TN3 and TN4
Bag : 100 and 104
"Canne à pêche" (sorry don't know the word in English and Dave is not with me....) : CG7, BG5, CG1 and CG3

 For my backing paper, I have used a CD from Crafters Companion, and the other one I have made it with my Spellbinder "Fleur de lys" that I have first inked with some Distressed Walnut ink, than I have embossed it.
The "reddish" paper is from my craft box. On it, I have put some golden border as well as a fish. I have finished my card by putting another fish on the top right corner.

That's it for me. Looking forward to see what you'll create as "Cards Depicting Sport".  Am going now to get the barbecue on, so we can have a nice diner and enjoy a bit more sun.

And please, don't forget that I am like you......I love reading your nice comments, so if you pop in here, please take a minute and leave me one.


  1. Hi Laurence this is so gorgeous I love the fishing frog.

  2. Hmmmm!"canne a peche"???? Maybe it is fishing rod? I recognize "peche" from "pescado" and pescar" which in Spanish are fish and to fish. so maybe that is close to the French word you used. It would fit since it is gray and those color numbers are in the gray family, right?

    OK. Now that we have had a language lesson for today, (LOL!) your card is so cute! I love the image and the gold fish sticker is great. Love the color combinations and design, too!

    1. I think you're right....It's fishing rod, but dont say it to anybody.... (lol!!!!)

  3. Laurence, You card is so cute! I love the fishing line and fish you added! You did a great job! Edwina Brown
