Well, it’s taken me all day but here I am! While I was sitting here having my morning coffee, my mother called and I ended up meeting her and my sister at my aunt’s house. We made a short trip across the river and then had lunch together.

Anyhoo, Mallory has been asking me for days to make her a card. She has been teaching swim lessons all summer and one of her private lessons has been a little boy. She’s put a gift package together for him, now that the lessons are ending, and she wanted a fishy card to give him.

Using today’s SCS Sketch Challenge, this is what I came up with.


I stamped the goldfish on white paper and colored it with Copic Markers. For the background, I masked the goldfish and then sprayed the panel with Broken China/Pearl Shimmer Mist. I then sprinkled drops of water on the background to look like bubbles in the water, but alas you can’t see them in the photo. The bottom orange panel is stamped with a starfish just to add some fun elements to the card.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Good morning! This is me this morning drinking coffee from the NEW coffee pot I picked up at Target yesterday. It was such a great deal I couldn’t pass it up — $13.00 for a 12-cup Mr. Coffee! My husband said I should have bought 2 of them. I might go back and get another one at this price. Because I have coffee on all day long, coffee pots don’t last long around here. I quit buying expensive ones many years ago and get really excited when I find a great deal!

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes on a quick recovery from this darned cold I have! I’m feeling better – much better actually! However, I don’t feel like running a race or anything!

For those of you asking about Sydney — she’s doing GREAT! She’s back to running laps around the house and playing with Miss Ellie. I’d show you a picture, but she got a haircut last weekend and she’s still overly sensitive about it.

By the way, the point of my post this morning is . . . of yesterday’s Rubbernecker Gift Certificate. Post No. 17, according to the Sequence Generator at Random.org:

Hey hope you are feeling better. I love your Halloween card! I especially loved how the ribbon loooked kind of old and ratty-you are so creative.
thanks for all your wonderful ideas and inspiration.

and the author of this post — Cindy K! Cindy I’ve all ready sent you an email, but if you see this and haven’t received it, please let me know!

Well, I need to head to the stamp room. Mallory asked me to make a fishy card for the little boy she gives swim lessons too, and this is the only day I have to work on it. I’ll be back a little later!
