Swimming card

Hi everyone, brrrr it's a bit chilly today, snow expected too !
Just managed to visit our grandson yesterday for his 1st birthday
which is on Monday. So glad we didn't leave it until Monday
 now.I took 105 photographs...oh my!!! lots of good ones too.
I want to put three in a  tri frame , will show you when I finish it.
Right onto my 'LIM'  card for this week.This time it has to
 be a one layer card and the theme is.......
 Sports or Exercise
 Not an easy subject I think, however I managed it and here is
 the result. I was quite pleased with the sentiment, took a bit
of thinking about that one!I just added a bit of sky & grass using 
some chalk and a few hand drawn birds also,..... job done.OOPS
I just realised by adding the background my card isn't so LIM anymore
SORRY, hope I am made version two phew!
I just bought some lovely new Flexmarkers,..... well it would have
 been rude not too as they were in a sale.I just LOVE them, my new
favourites. They are very like Copics but I think they have an even
 thinner soft 'pointed' end, great for getting into tiny places.
I want MORE!!!!
ps. A big welcome to my latest follower too, welcome aboard.

  3. as always a fabulous card, viv!! love that sentiment!

  4. These made me smile Viv!
    It reminded me of an occasion many years ago when my father-in-law met some people whilst in the shallows in the sea in Yugoslavia. He was standing having a conversation with his mask over his eyes and nose and his speech sounded much like this chap's. My husband and I were having hysterics!
    I digress!
    Thanks so much

  5. Love this image and sentiment Viv, made me smile! Your sky is amazing on the first card, so realistic:) Can't wait to see Charlie's 1st birthday pics!
    Cold here too but I'm hoping we don't get the snow. My kitchen is being ripped out and refitted starting tomorrow, well even with 6 boxes to the charity shop and as much to the tip I still have enough to start a catering college!!!
