Best Fishes for a Happy Birthday!

Yep, I'm back to birthday cards again.  I swear the birthdays at work just keep exploding & there is always another one coming up.  Since most of my cards are pretty "normal" I thought I would sneak in a little chuckle for a change.  This card is another of my favorites from Prairie Fairy.  I added 2 little fish from an old Stampin Up set & popped them up for a little interest.  I also took some green glitter paper from  my stash & ran it thru the "bubble" embossing folder. Since I already had a lot of glitter there, I also added some to my little mermaid & her fishy companions. You can never have too much glitter! (Probably a sign of old age!) lol

I should have taken my picture a bit less directly in front so that you could see the glitter and the dimension of the fish popped up.  I'm still learning how to work my new camera, obviously.  I colored her yesterday    while I was at Gail's & finished her when I came home. I might have gotten done if not for the time I took to eat!  You can't make cards without eating, right?  I think it is written down in some ancient rule book somewhere!                                                                                                                         

Off to make a baby card.  For someone at work, of course.  One of these days, I'm actually going to make a card for me! ha ha

Catch you all later!


  1. Love your card and the added fishies are perfect. Your photo shows off the embossing really well. Not only are you an excellent card maker, now your a photographer as well.

  2. She's adorable. Love the coloring on her. The embossing looks great.
