Gone Fishing!

I cannot believe that it is already November!  I have to say this is the fastest year yet! Before we know it we will be saying "Hello" to a New Year!

I chose this image because it reminds me of the beautiful, long, lazy, warm days of summer.  He is a fun little guy to color up.  I used the Retro Circles to mimic water ripples.  Hope it gives you the same feeling!  If you like this image, you can find Guy Fishing
at Bugaboo Stamps!

I hope you will play along with us this week at Catch the Bug.  The challenge is Anything Goes!  How easy is that!  You may be the lucky winner of some fun Bugaboo images of your choice!
