Hope you had a good week! I have been so overwhelmed with house showings, my day job and some family matters, I have been missing is action! I hope to get back to the blogging world on an every day basis soon! Thanks so much for stopping in! I DO appreciate it.

Fishy Christmas Mens Wear!
This weeks set focus at Flourishes was Men's Wear. This is the first Flourishes set I bought! I have used it over and over for the men in my life and today decided to combine this set with the Limited Supply Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. The fishy designer paper is from The Paper Patch. It is so old I have no idea where and when I acquired it! I stamped the shirt image on the paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I added Copic marker coloring for a red and green festive look, shading to the shirt, and then cut out! Part of the challenge was to make critters into a holiday card! I hope fish will qualify! What does a fisherman hope will catch his fish? A hook of course! But, probably not this kind of ornament hook! The sentiment and ornaments are from the the Flourishes set, O Christmas Tree. I have to let you in on my conversation with my husband regarding this card for his Dad. When I asked him what he thought, he asked if it was a pajama shirt? Then stated, it looks like the tasteless material used for those holiday boxer shorts! Bwahaaaa. And he hates those! Oh well, I tried! For a Merry, Merry Christmas greeting though, I think this will be just fine! But I will pass on the boxers!
