A bit fishy...

 Good morning, the 1st of November, I'm sure that each year time flies by faster than it did the year before...probably a sign of my advanced age. 

My card today is for our new challenge at Fab'n' Funky, hosted this week by our lovely Sue. The theme she has chosen is 


I used a fun Mo Manning image, it was a  Patreon  freebie, don't think it's in the shop. I've coloured the Red Herring with markers and used a stencil for the background. The sentiment is composed with die cut letters (a Tim Holtz Sizzix strip die I've had for years.) This card was made for a good friend- he loves reading and detective novels.

As always there's some wonderful inspiration to be enjoyed over at Fab'n' Funky so please do stop by to see what my lovely teamies have created.

Thanks for visiting today

I agree, the months go far to quickly, its all very odd, it doesn't help when you think every day this week is Friday,

My Gran always said the older you get the faster the years go, I used to poo hoo the idea but goodness she was right, like you now sure where this year went.

A super card, great for a man and a hint of fun in there as well.

Oh, Goodness - that fishy detective is so fun! Love this for a fisherman in your life. I thought the years going by so fast was a sign of my age as well, but my young adult kids are saying the same thing. So, my theory is that we are all just too busy and need to slow down. Thank you for playing with us at the MMM Challenge. I hope you can join us again soon.
