Little fish in a deep blue sea

Here's a great card for a guy. I can't make Father's Day cards yet! Maybe next year when the hurt hurts less!


Recyled is one of my favorite embellishments.  This card has a net on it that is from the bag of pearl onions we ate at Christmas time. Yes, I knew that I would use that blue netting. Lily has found the two bags that I was saving and been playing with them. that child will play with anything that I have. I shouldn't ever buy her toys, she plays with them when they are new and then shirks them for my throw aways every time. she is constantly in my trash can looking for fun paper to cut and fold and paste. she now, age three, helps herself to the glue sticks, my acrylic blocks, my cards that I hoard. She can take apart a card in less than three seconds. She is my best critic if she loves it she wants it and that card has no chance. She can spot it from the doorway even when it's way up and out of her reach. She's a funny kid and will not listen when it comes to my stuff! when I say, "is that clear?" She says, "crystal." I made that flip flop card and can't find it now. I either put it up and can't remember where or she has it somewhere! Good thing I take my photos as soon as the ink is dry, the glue usually is still wet! I hate it when I have to wait for the crystal effects to dry on a brad or whatever.

OK, back to the card. boy, I sure can get off subject and lily's one of my favorite off subject subjects!

The seahorses with their tails tucked into the netting and the fish are from Daisy Doodles Beyond the Reef collection. Everything else is self explanatory especially since I took most of your time talking about Lily!
I can't say which I like best the inside or the outside. I scraped the ink pad over the Tiny Bubbles ef after I sanded it and glued down the fish.
Thanks for coming by!
