Shane's Leaving Card

We've had a day full of season's today ... warm and sunny, windy, lashing rain with thunder and lightening, and now a muggy warm night!  So if you don't like the weather, just wait half an hour!  I was down in Belfast this morning and nipped round to see the World Police and Fire Games Dragon Boat racing... pics below.  Great to see Belfast with such a happy buzz and lots of folk from all over the world having a great time.

Anyway, back to my card which for a guy in work who's got a new fancy job in London.  The story behind this is that he'd eat chicken curry and chips from our local takeaway every day if he could, so I thought I'd send him his own chicken off to London :)  I would have liked to have added another cloud or two, but unfortunately ran out of this nice dp.  Chicken popped up on dimensionals and clear gloss added to highlights on chicken, his balloon and the arrow.  Also got my neglected silver peel offs out, and my googly eyes haven't been used in a while either (I'm on a determined mission to use up my stash!)
