Happy Friday, Stampers!
I love, love, love this cute craft stamp from Janlynn's Stamps Happen, Inc.! This is one of their newest holiday craft stamps; to see THIS stamp, clicky HERE. To see the entire Stamps Happen holiday stamp collection, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo.
I stamped my image three times; twice on DP and once on card stock, then paper-pieced the gift boxes over the image stamped on card stock.
I colored the cute l'il bird with Copic markers, matted it, and adhered some very old stripey DP to my card base. I added some Prima holiday flowers and holiday brads and finis! So easy, even I could do it!

Sooooooooooo, yesterday Sheila and her DH took the day off to do some fishing. Wait. That's not right. No, Ken took the day off to go fishing, and Sheila whined and complained so much, that he grudgingly agreed to take her with him.
All I had to do was pick up Reid-the-Wild-Child at the bus stop, bring him home, then stay with him till Sheila and Ken returned.
When they returned, Sheila looked miserable ... whereas I was fresh-as-a-daisy from two + hours with the Wild-Child ... yeah, right.
"Why so glum, Chum*? Didn't you two have fun?"
"Oh, everything went wrong, Deb. First Ken said I talked so loud that I would scare the fish. Then he said I was using the wrong bait, and then that I was reeling in too soon."
"Oh, well, you know how men are about fishing," I said.
"Yeah, and I guess I could live with that, but then, to make matters worse, I was the only one catching any fish!"
*A fishing pun!! Yeah, Sheila didn't get it either ...
Thanks for coming by ... and hey, why not go fishing with your DH this weekend!?!
