Supplies:  Patterned paper is Provo Craft, Fish digi is from
Vintage Digital Stamps, Fish stamp is TPC Studio.
 I made this card for a friends birthday next week. He always smokes fish
that he has caught when his wife and I have a stamping marathon and
it is fabulous, so I wanted a fish themed card for his birthday.  Last
visit he fixed lunch for us too (pastrami and cheese Panini's) that
were fabulous. I pop doted the fish just in the center to make it
look like it was swimming, and could not resist some wink of stella
to make him shimmer!  My dear husband made the hook for me out
of a paper clip.

AWESOME - I don't know if I can keep this a secret until his birthday - but I will. Love everything about this from the hook to the fish to the wonderful comments about dinner/lunch. I KNOW he will love it. Guess I have to get busy and make a card - truly I almost forgot.
