Bring out the bubbly!

Is everyone surviving the heat??  It got to 101 in CT yesterday!  Thankfully, I did spend the majority of the day indoors.  

I was the lucky recipient of some Amuse cardstock and stamp set by Meg (more on that below)....and I finally inked up one of the coral stamps for this card.  I inked it up about a week ago and then the card sat.....and sat........and I did other projects.......and it stared at me......and I had no idea where I was going  with it, until, I looked on my stamp shelf and saw my Impression Obsession fish stamp.  So I decided to stamp the fishy twice and make him swim with the coral!  You can't tell from the angle, but I cut out his fins and popped them up a bit.
I colored him with my prisma pencils, but no gamsol. I used my blender pencil instead.  I added some 'bubbles' and then....was stuck on a sentiment.  Until I found a sentiment from my There She Goes laundry set, which I thought worked pretty well.  I guess this could be a "congratulations' card!


So, here's the what I received from Meg at Corgi Creations!  Lucky gal I am!  If you have never visited Meg's blog........YOU MUST!!!!!  She is incredible!! She's also in the Top 10 for the Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Idol and she's rockin' it out!!!!

Enjoy your Saturday. Going to walk dogs and visit Pinky at the shelter.  I have to say, I was a little sad not having her in the house....but it was also nice not to worry about her too!!!


Thanks for your visit!

WHAT a cute card, Maria! So pretty, so fun, and so creative, all rolled into one. I just LOVE that sentiment. Love the "bubbles" you created, too. Totally makes me smile!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. It's super hot here, too.......makes me not want to step outside at all.
