Gone Fishin'!

Greetings friends!

How's your week going?  Mine is eh-eh....glad tomorrow is Hump Day; REALLY looking forward to the weekend!  :D

I FINALLY got a chance to get my "Something's Fishy" a la mode from MFT Stamps inky.  LMBO - isn't it just the funniest?  It comes with 3 sentiments but I just had to use the "That's Just Crappie!" sentiment; makes me laugh every single time!

I'm still working to use up my BG paper pads so I pulled out some unusual colors for me, but I thought the green would be perfect for her big fishy!

I stamped the fish twice on designer paper, cutting both out; the 2nd one is layered with dimensionals at the tail to give it a great 3D effect!

The layout comes from Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #110; I flipped the sketch and also used a circle to fit my sentiment rather than an oval.  Great layout; thanks Karen!

I always decorate the inside of my cards; but this time I had to stamp the same images b/c they are just so cute and funny!  The girl and fish are stamped 2nd generation; the sentiment is 1st generation.  A bit more DP to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by; hope your day is GREAT!

Hugs, ~M.
