Hello all and hope you have had a great week.
.. Now they say you should try and learn something new every day -
well I Iearnt something - the collective noun for goldfish - in fact there are two in use apparently..
a 'Troubling of Goldfish' or, and my particular preference, ' A Glint of Goldfish'
and this set me thinking .. the current challenge this week at Addicted to CAS is the prompt 'Pets'!
Sad to say we don't have any Pets, nor do I have much in the way of animal stamp sets.. but I do have a goldfish stamp.!! Yeah...
and I used this as a basis for a best 'fishes' card for a lovely friend.
I positioned a couple more of the fishes and another of the leaf fronds direct onto the paper. I then stamped my jam jar onto one of Stampin' Up!'s window sheets and die-cut this, and it's carry handle, with the matching framelit from the Everyday Jars set.
and with that, have also entered my card for the current challenge over at Happy Little Stampers where this week they want to see 'Anything goes with Dies'.
the sentiment made me smile too.. ' Best fishes for you' from the same Jar of Love stamp set and very apt in the circumstances and know my friend will have a chuckle at that as well!
and remember where I came in... ' A glint of goldfish'.. Although a bit difficult to make out, I did use my clear Wink of Stella brush pen to add a little glint to each of my them.!
