Take Part Tuesday – new challenge blog!

Take Part Tuesday’s first challenge was ‘Fish’, which strangely enough is right up my alley! I am a passionate angler (that’s my ‘other’ dark side!) and I help run my DH’s charitable organsation which was set up last year to help get less able and disabled anglers back to the bank/lake by finding them a Buddy to fish with…

Here’s an altered matchbox for this challenge which I made last month:

Gone Fishing! 

The drawer knob is an old silver earring – I just cut the post down a bit and fixed it with a dot of Diamond Glaze. The stickers I used to decorate it are from JemCraft Memories, RAK’d to me last year when we started making cards, etc. to raise funds for our charitable organisation! People have been very kind. 😀
