Whatever Floats your Boat….

I can honestly say I have never really 'got' fishing. we see a lot of people pursuing this hobby at the lake near where I live and I can't understand what is so fun about lugging tonne of stuff and sitting in the cold and rain all day, waiting for a fish to bite……so you can throw it back in the water!

Still - each to his own I guess - I am sure that crafting is not everyone's cup of tea either!

That said, thanks goodness for fishing is a way, because it makes a great subject for the ever troublesome 'manly' card.

Here's a really CAS card that I made using a Do Crafts stamp and a bit of distressing.
This guy does look pretty happy, so I am guessing it must be a sunny day!

There are a few manly challenges out there so here are a few that I am going to enter:

  8. Great male card, Sharon. I love the CAS design, with the sponged edges, and that doodled frame really sets it off.
