Something Fishy

Hello Everyone,

Wednesday morning, and I need slippers...brrr...a chilly 5.30am....I must be getting soft in my old age, as my tootsies are cold.....took the dog for a walk and Autumn is really sneaking in, so dark and 'Harry' growls at anything that moves, freaks me out in the dark...only last week we went for our early morning jaunt and it was light...the clocks dont go back till April and my body clock is so ready to be back to normal, I can never get it out of my brain that our time is not real....

So glad also that I recieved a phone message last night that I'm not needed at a clients house today, as I've pulled a muscle in my neck and across my shoulder and it hurts.So down to 4 hours plus 'My lady'..then I can rest up till I pick the boys up...and Wednesday is easy with them too as they have scouts at 6pm, then I come home.....bliss.

Have a card to share....a real cute fish, a freebie from Anne Fenton  there are two fish on this link..



Theres my wee fishy...



Coloured with Faber Castell pencils...glossy accents on his eyes....glitter on the stars....copic dots around image...

Now...THE TAIL..I cut it off, so it is 3D with a difference..lol...I traced around the tail on the inside of the die to hand cut the tips.. ready to put through the cuttlebug... ...but forgot to cut out the tail, and straight through the bug, and cut his tail off...
So the tips of his tail are stuck onto the card and the die cut image is on foam dots..



The paper is from my stash, yellow coral or seaweed, is from artificial plant, bubbles cut with hand held paper punch, and loads of seed beads for the bottom of the sea.....with a rose and MS punched leaves..



Not sure about a sentiment yet, just made it or fun, as I loved the image..

Time to go, duty calls...hope you have a lovely day/evening...will see you tomorrow, and thank you for all your lovely comments...makes me all warm and fuzzy....except my feet, must get those slippers.

Luv CHRISSYxx
