Thought for the day -

This is a real quick post...it's almost bedtime but I wanted to try todays Friday Sketchers challenge. This was a fun sketch. The only thing I deviated from was the sentiment.


















While going through my stash of ribbon and coming up with nothing that would go I found this elastic ribbon and immediately thought of fish line.








It was perfect for "hooking" my little fish. I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the fish brad. It goes perfectly with my ocean paper and beach image. My little guy is all ready for a day at the beach! Isn't he cute. He is another of the new images from Sunshine and Giggles. I used my copics to color him...had a little problem with bleeding but not too bad. I am out of quality cardstock and it really does make a difference when you are using copics. The dp is by cosmo cricket and I got it just for this stamp. All cardstock is by Stampin Up.

Well off to bed...I don't know what I was thinking but volunteered to work tomorrow. It's almost quarter end so the office is frantic to get the work done...ugh. Apparently I was thinking dollar signs and now I wish I had been thinking more about sleep!

Back tomorrow with more....
