Just Keep Swimmin' - Sketchbook Saturday

Just Keep Swimmin'  - Sketchbook Saturday

I was actually looking for something on Chupa's blog 
when I stumbled across the cutest ladybug card she posted.
And it so happened it is the most current 
Sketchbook Saturday Sketch!
I thought how cute the card is with Penny Black itty bitty ladybug,
it is actually a large image stamp.
(Check it out HERE)
I don't have any of those.  
I guess I am finding out the kinds
of stamps I shy away from.  Interesting.
Well.. I did a card last year where two fish were talking
to each other, and a speech bubble would be perfect.
I could CASE that card.
So I did. 

This is a FUN one, PLAY ALONG!

Here is my take on the Sketchbook Saturday:






Supplies:
Viva Las Vegas Fish Stamps
AMuse Sentiment
Embossing Folder Lifestyle Crafts for Cuttlebug Tides
Accents Cloud9 Rain Dots Stickers
Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
Signo White Gel Pen

I hand cut my large speech bubble.
I know that Paper smooches.... I think has a die that does this.
...Though I will tell you that when I finished my card and went back to take a closer look, 
I smiled to see that Chupa hand cut hers too!


This is me, stamping the images on colored cardstock
and the using a Signo Uniball White Gel pen to color in areas.
I then went over 
"Dori" with yellow and red copics



And here is the card I CASE'd, 
I like my recent one much better!

This is absolutely adorable! I love the way that you used the embossing folder to represent the water.

I want to thank you so much for nominating me for the award. Truly humbled! I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you earlier. I came down with the worse flu that I've ever had. I developed laryngitis too and it's killing me not to be able to talk. I've gotten behind visiting my bloggy friends, but hope to catch up soon!

Well, you've officially gone off the scale for 'cuteness' with both these cards, Kimberly! The original is darling and the second, simply fabulous, especially the hand-made speech bubble! Love those fishes, and the sentiment is such an inspiration! Emma will be in glee when she opens this!1 Hugs~c
