Birthday Fishes



Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I know I did.  I slept in late, got up, ate some Shari's Berries for breakfast, read a little, laid on the couch and took a nap and then was treated to dinner out.  It was a fabulous day!

Everyone was tuckered out and went to bed early so I took advantage of it and stamped a few cards while I watched the disappointing and predictable finale of Survivor.  I think if anyone else but Jeff Probst were hosting this reality show, I'd give up on it.  I seem to only watch it as I love Jeff's commentary.

I came across a really cute sketch this weekend over at Gourmet Rubber Stamps that I wanted to use.  I love the banner cards I see, but never seem to make them.  This time, I wanted to try it and I love how it turned out.  I originally had another idea with the banner but I couldn't figure out a way to make it work so I settled for this instead.

I also love the color combination that CR84FN had this week with mint, blue and a neutral.  These are my office colors so of course I had to create with it!




Hope you have a good Monday and we'll see you all tomorrow!
