Two FISH cards and a FUN evening!

 I had some ideas for the FISH theme at this weeks CASology challenge - and that's what I ended up creating:



I used my Sea Mates set from TAWS for the first card. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.


The waves I cut with Lifestyle Crafts die out of vellum. The waves are held together by a Washi tape and bakers twine. The eyes I made with glossy accents and on the whale sprout I put some glossy accents - does not really show in the picture.....

Here is a new challenge to link up with: 

Go visit Stempelgaudi and link up your favorite project from last month. Although this can be hard, to pick a favorite card ....For me it is.... I love them all......(almost all)


--X--

My second card I modeled after the childrens book SWIMMY by Leo Leonni - it was one of our favorites when my kids were little.....





The red fish are from Paper Source, the black fish I made myself out of left over scrap from a rubber stamp sheet. The sentiment is from TAWS - Sea Mates (again). The coral is by an unknown stamp company....

And here I wanted to share a picture from yesterday evening - on the left you see Sherrie  - on the right that is me - we met through our online blogs and eventually we discovered that we happen to live in the same town !!! How small the world is...... so eventually we managed to get together for a fun evening of making cards together and getting to know each other a little bit!


The card that came out of this I posted yesterday - I could not wait, since the challenges I made it for were near closing......

Zwei wunderschöne und Farbenfrohe Karten sind das wieder! Wirklich sehr süß diese Fische!
Ja, die Welt ist klein, wem sagst du das!
Als wir damals in den USA waren, trafen wir mitten im Grand Canyon eine Französin aus der nicht weit entfernten Nachbarstadt! ----(Aber meine Nachbarin treffe ich mimmer nur im Superladen!) Lol

I love both your cards, Cornelia. Super cute and creative. Love the first one with dimension and orange and blue colors, cute scene. Love how you inspired by the book's illustration for the second card, beautifully done.

You look beautiful in the picture. Good you had great time with your friend. :-)

Liebe Cornelia,

deine entzückende Meer-Szene kommt genau richtig zu den aktuell tropisch-heißen Temperaturen in "good old Germany". Man möchte auf der Stelle zu den putzigen Fischlein ins Wasser springen und sich ein kühles Bad genehmigen ...

Herzlichen Dank für deine Teilnahme an der brandneuen Challenge 'Meine TOP 1 des Monats' und deinen tollen Beitrag. Ich freue mich riesig, dass du mit dabei bist.

Ich wünsche dir viel Spaß in der Challenge, beim Seiten-Hüpfen in den Challenge-Blogs und natürlich auch viel Spannung für die Auslosung des Einkaufs-Gutscheins.

Und wenn es dir Spaß gemacht hat, sei ab 1. August gerne wieder dabei in der nächsten 'TOP 1'-Challenge …

Bis bald und viele liebe Grüße
Moni
