Best Fishes

Hi Lovelies,

As promised in my last post here is the set of cards that I had made for a few challenges.  From memory (which isn't that great) I do know that I had hoped to enter these into the A Blog Named Hero challenge (for using kraft on your project), one of my fav sketch challenge blogs (can't remember which one though ;p) & finally Simon Says Stamp challenge (Animal antics). I did manage to make these cards (except for the sentiment) before the deadline, but unfortunately I didn't get them photographed & uploaded in time.  So I then decided to add a computer generated sentiment, which reads Best Fishes.  I am still learning about spacing, sizing & about a gazillion other things on Gimp so my sentiments are a bit skew-if.

Well I have to go now.  Both my girls have conjunctivitis & gunky ears at the moment.  Which means it's medicine time again.  On top of this we are all suffering with colds - I will be so glad when winter is over.  Bring on the sunshine :o)

Happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo

I really love this set Paula. It is so cute. Pity you missed some of the challenges. I generally do my words etc in Word... Sorry to hear you are all so unwell. Poor Emsy and Lily... not fun to have conjunctivitis. Is you weather a bit iffy still? I arrive in Mooloolaba on the evening of the 31st so hoping for sunny weather. Will drop you an email soon.

Oh bummer, kids with winter colds are never fun.....seems like the minute one gets better someone else in the family gets sick and then the whole cycle begins again! Hoping you guys are cold-free really soon. And your cards are really adorable! I love the sentiment with them...such a great little pun. And your coloring is perfect!
