HI Blog Friends,

The hour has struck and it is time for Flourishes Noon Challenge.  This one is dedicated “for the boys”.

I am glad you return today to see my card for the noon challenge.  I have a very special man that I needed a card for, you see our regular UPS Driver Ginger has a husband that  retired and fishes every day.  One day she told us that he had caught so many fish that she did not know what to do with all of it as they will not eat it frozen.  Well knowing us, you know that “volunterred” to take on any extra fist that he might have time to time.  She has come through with early morning deliveries that also come with and ice chest of fresh fish , just caught and cleaned ready for cooking.  My Gosh!,  were we stunned and a very pleasant way.  He has continued to keep us on is extra fish list and are please to have such a wonderful treat delivered to our door.  Needless to say this gentleman and dedicated fisherman deserved a special thank you card. This challenge was the perfect excuse to make another card “for the boys”

I choose to use the stamp set, Watch a Catch, it was a no brainier.  While he does not fly fish I truly thing he will get the message.  I used a mulit fold card in shades of blued.  The focal image was stamped in Memnto Inks and colored with Copic Collections from the FLLC store.  I stamped and colored in image twice so I could pop it up for dimension.  I wanted that fish to look like it just jump off the card.

I used a Brocade Blue card stock  from my stash to dress it up a bit I used the Authentique Loyal 6×6 paper pad.  Used Spellbinder dies Label one  in two sizes. fussy cut the image and really popped it up.  A couple of buttons from My Minds Eye Breeze Collection  and some twine from my stash were all the special effects that the card seemed to need.  I think he will be please with his card, don’t you.

Now it is your turn,  get busy and create  your own card for “Let Hear It For The Boys” challenge.
