Gas Street, BCN

Spring is in the air!!

Some of the moorers spent the afternoon sat outside, in the sunshine, around the table drinking wine (and tea) this afternoon - one dressed only in jeans and a t-shirt!  There was ice in the water when we woke up this morning too.

Won't be long until we are off on our first cruise of the year.

Walking down Farmers Locks the other day I noticed this new lock beam.

One of those with a poem carved on it.

I couldn't understand it, but perhaps that is because I am a Philistine.

But I can't help thinking that if I'd carved out a poem it would have been considered vandalism.

Cathy had a mouse on her boat - see Towpath Telegraph for whole story.  David took this picture of her looking for it.  On the right is Smudgie the dog looking too, so there are two "fat" bums in the picture!!

So for Cathy's grand-daughter's birthday I made this easel card.

I matted the photo onto silver card and used a punch to stamp out little squares in the corners so I could wrap the silver cord around it.  I then matted that onto light blue card and then onto the white card blank.  I added a mouse with a baloon walking across the bottom of the picture.

Inside, I really went to town with the mouse theme.  I printed out the sentiment ad added some clip art mice which I matted onto silver and blue card. 

Then I printed out another sentiment using a font that had footprints along it and matted than onto silver and blue card  I fixed this one with sticky fixers to make it stand up so that the front of the card could rest against it.

Both Cathy and Georgia thought it was hilarious.  So I must have got something right.
