Swimmin' By

Well, a couple of days ago I was "Buzzin' By" and now I'm "Swimmin' By".  We had a couple of days of Spring and are now into Summer it seems!   Monday, it was 96 degrees here - and then cooled down a little.  The last couple of days we were back up in the 90's!  Today, we've cooled down again.   Crazy Texas weather!!


These little fish and sentiment are free images from The Alley Way Stamps.  I used some Paper Studio DP and then colored and cut out the fish and placed them on dimensionals.  I didn't have any green paper to match these little guys so colored a couple of strips of white card stock with my Copics.

This card is for the Inspiration Challenge going on right now at The Alley Way Stamps.  

Thanks for stopping by.............
Lynn

Brilliant design Lynn and these little fish are just the cutest! That paper could not be more perfect and I think it's so clever how you've added those green strips.

Boy you are a busy girl, swimming and fishing. Usually I don't like the look of fish, but your little "fishies" are cute as a button. Love the white space on your card. Have a good summer day.

I love the water droplet paper! That's awesome. And what a fab sentiment :)
In the 90s? In March? I think I *might* stop bellyaching about how cold it gets here, maybe. At least I can always put on a sweater!

Cute little fishies...and loved the puddles on the paper. Great idea on coloring your strips to match with the copics. Know about that with ribbons, but (DUH) never thought of it to use for paper trimmings! Tnx for the idea! TFS & Hugs. Enjoy your warm weather. SC Upstate can't decide to bring on Spring!

Margaret said...
