Wow how quick this has come round again .... wish I could slow time down for a day ....

Any way onto the challenge over at LEJ's and this weeks theme is "CELEBRATE" ..... I chose this digi (Gone Fishing) from Lindsays as I wanted to do a mans  retirement card .... the idea for the fishing rod popped into my head and I just had to give it ago.
I used a lollypop stick for the rod and some twine for the line (I am sure any of your fishing people out there are cringing right now and screaming at me .... 'you could NEVER catch a fish with that thing!!"  .... so to you all ... i am sorry ...BUT it was fun to make ) 
I added a small hook which I had from some curtain rings from Ikea and tied it to the end of the twine.   For the fish I found a royalty free image from the internet and printed it on printable acetate (first time doing that and it was SO easy )  then added the googley eye to the fish and also hooked on the tag with 'Happy Retirement' on it too ... the embossing folders are from Crafters Companion's Embossalicious range.

Thanks as always for stopping by. Your continued support  really does mean a lot to me
