A fishy Christmas!

Hello all, I hope that Father Christmas came to call - and had some crafting goodies for you? We had a fairly quiet day yesterday, and it felt very strange not to have our daughter with us (I suppose the first time is always difficult!). But we all relaxed and did the usual thing of eating too much, not doing enough, etc. But our girlie joined us today and it was lovely to have a family lunch together! Now enjoying a quiet half hour before son returns from the Boxing Day football match he's been to - and then the whole shenanigans of food & washing up starts again....

My hubby and I usually just get each other small gifts for Christmas as the focus has always been the offspring - and when there are 4 to budget for (+ partners!) we're used to being bottom of the list lol! However, he has kindly bought me a set of 24 Graphit pens to play with and I am so looking forward to getting all the crafty goodies out again and doing some colouring. I have half a dozen Graphit markers and enjoy using them, so I'm hoping these will be as good!  I'll let you know.  My non-crafting friends would probably be totally confused as to how some alcohol markers can be so exciting...

Anyway, just thought I'd share yet another Christmas card, made for a colleague for her husband.  He is a VERY keen fisherman, and she wanted a Christmas card with fishing theme - something I think she'd have difficulty finding in a shop!

I've used a Bugaboo digi featuring the fabulous Gus, coloured with copics and Graphits (the few that I then had lol!). I've added glossy accents but I don't think it shows up on the pics
The backing papers are from LOTV, with an AllOccasions die cut sentiment. The ribbon and berries are from stash and the die cut holly leaves are using a Joanna Sheen signature die.

Hope you like it. 
I hope you enjoy the rest of your Christmas break, whatever you may be doing. 
Thank you for all your support and comments - they are appreciated SO much! 
Back soon,
