Fishy Birthdays

Fishy Friends is one of my favourite sets and even though it has retired I was happy to drag it out to make some kids cards for an upcoming craft show. The characters are so darned cute that you can't fail to smile!

I think the cards are pretty self-explanatory so I'll just show them and if you have any queries don't hesitate to email me and ask. The last one is an adaptation of a card by Marelle Taylor.


Materials used:
  • stamps - Fishy Friends (retired), Curly Cute, Think Happy Thoughts (retired)
  • card - real red, tempting turquoise, whisper white, pool party, island indigo, wisteria wonder, poppy parade, so saffron, very vanilla, watercolour paper, BigTop Birthday dsp
  • other - 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, dimensionals, rick rack (stash), poppy parade ribbon, island indigo ruffled ribbon, aquapainter, inks and markers, sponge daubers, non SU embossing folders

DD13 just loves the first one, so I am going to have to watch it doesn't end up in her room instead of for the craft show! I must admit it is my favourite of the three too.

Thanks for calling in.
