Gone Fishing Again and New Distressing Tools!
It's week 24 on the Polkadoodles challenge, Now this weeks challenge has been chosen by Dee, the theme this week is Fathers Day/ Male theme. I have used the Not For Girls CD -Rom for my creation, and the image is from the Stampies section. The sentiment is done on the computer. The winner will receive a special blinkie for use on their blog and something scrummy from Polka Doodles! Runners-up will also receive Blinkies!
I have made this for my Dad whose birthday is in 2 weeks time and he's a fisherman so this image is ideal.
Last Friday evening I was getting a little angry with my Distressing tool, everytime I wanted to change my foam pad on it, the velcro kept coming away from the tool. After trying to give it a few sharp words my Hubby asked me what was wrong. I told him what was happening to the tool, he asked if I needed a new one then. I said no, it is with taking the pads on and off. I said I could do with wooden blocks for each colour. Saturday lunch time he came home from work with a strip of wood, and these are what he made me with a strip of wood and some velcro hook. They work great although a little rough looking, but he has said he will get some better wood now he knows they work and will sand and stain some new ones for me so they look better. But guess what I don't care if he doesn't do new ones as I like these and I love the thought he put into these. I have ten colours in distress inks, and hope to get some more eventually as I love using them, he said he'll just make more when I need them. bless him, he can be so thoughtful sometimes.
Have a great weekend
