Fun Card

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for all your comments yesterday...and I did listen to myself on the answering phone...didn't sound like me, I knew I had a deep loud voice [talk to deaf people all day] ...but didn't realise how loud and'd be good in a movie talking on the phone, if I didn't know better, I'd have thought that I was actually talking to someone...
Anyway. it worked...

I was kinda dissappointed about the cones not being used but relieved at the same time, as it was going to be such a big job, right on Christmas, and New Year...but have managed to finished the invitations last night....can show you after the wedding..

Bit more news before we hit the card....I had an e-mail from an artist known as Heather Valentin..asking me if I would be a designer for Scrapbook Stamp Society  and join their 'Dream Team'..I checked out their images and they are gorgeous, said I would be delighted to and will be starting just after Christmas.

Onto todays little number....a real fun card for me to do, a Kenny K image, boy with goldfish.

I loved colouring this litte guy..Coloured with pencils and papers from Rosies studio pad..

A close up of the fish in the bag which was so overfilled with clear glue to make water and a few pearls for the bubbles. [hard to see how thick the glue is]


And the other side...clipped my corners again with the circle punch, and did some shading around the image..dont usually do that cause I forget to.

Entering this card in a challenge at CRAFT US CRAZY   [Christmas and or humerous.]
and KKKgirlz challenge  [anything goes]

Right you are then, time to push on and go to work...4 more sleeps..whoo hoo.

See you tomorrow with some animal elegance...thanks for stopping by..
