Merry Fishmas

Hello again,

Many thanks to those of you who have asked if we are safe from the Bushfires currently burning in NSW, the nearest fire to us is about 50km away and is mostly burning in deep bushland where there are few houses and settlements, it has currently burnt through 189,980 hectares of mostly bushland. We did have a smaller fire closer to home, three towns away which unfortunately started after a house fire, it burnt through just 77 hectares of bush they lost two sheds and a caravan, (information courtesy of my neighbours 17yo son, who is a bushfire fighter with our local brigade) before it was extinguished. Thankfully this fire was in a southern valley which doesn't tend to burn during the summer months when the winds are mostly from the north.

I have been a little naughty, doing some extra colouring (and gardening, but that's another story). I bought this digi from Just Ink lined ages ago with the intention of making a Christmas card for my Uncle who always asked if he could go fishing in our now empty/broken fish tank, a standing joke each time he came to visit... Just Ink Lined appears to have closed down.... I have hidden the hanging hole in the paper pad under the sentiment

Here is my card:-

What I used:-
White 12.6x17.8cm card blank
blue polka dot paper
Just Ink Lined 'A Christmas Fish'
Faber-Castell and Derwent coloured pencils
scraps of black cardstock
Fiskars scalloped border punch
MFT pierced oval and pierced fishtail flags dies
Pebbles Home for Christmas paper pad
Sentiment from Create with TLC
Wink of Stella (over the fish bowl)
