A bird may love a fish...

... But where would they live?




This was a line in "Ever After" which DH and I watched last night. I knew right away I HAD to pair the phrase up with the Just Johanna fish and bird I'm so fond of making kiss.




And here is the card:





I colored with prismacolor markers of course. The paper is Basic Gray, I'm really proud it was a tiny funky shaped scrap and I used it! The ribbon is May Arts. Oh this is cool, I didn't have a blueish green so I colored the bird with Light Ceriluean Blue and then over top with True Green to get this blue/green looking color. Now how cool is that? I did the phrase on my computer. I did email Johanna though and tell her I really think she should consider making a phrase that says this. (Erin's too lazy to print her phrases more than once in a while.)



Today Nita came over and bought a bunch of the stuff I have for the garage sale at the LSS (Local Stamp Store, mine's Scrap N Stamp) this weekend. She got $30 of stuff! CHA CHING! So I sold stuff on Friday too and now I'm up to $60 of that junk sold and there is still piles and piles of it! My goal is always to make $200. I'll keep you posted!



Hey did you see that counter thingie that is for Stamping Top 50? It's down near the bottom on the right. Anyhow I broke 200 yesterday! I'm at 197 now. It's fun to watch that number go down.



Don't forget that I have my birthday next month and YOU get the presents! I'm putting together a HUGE box of all my favorite things (will there be prismacolor markers in there? Who knows!) and one lucky person will win it all! It will be something super easy to enter too so don't worry one bit about that!



Oh and did you know my oldest turned 2 today! Happy Birthday Stephen!
