Don't your simple pleasures usually involve fish? grins! well tuna fish is one of my comfort foods, so these fishy friends MUST count! my family thinks I am completely wonked that when I am really sick, I reach for tuna and crackers. yep, super-dee-duper strange. someone must have dropped me several times on my pointed little head when I was little, and it must have been right into a swimming pool! :)
I think these fish from Isabella's Sketchbook are just so neat. She has quite a few to pick from and I am in the process of collecting them all. Today starts a new challenge over on her challenge blog, but she is also announcing the creation of her brand new DT. my dear friend Linda Payne is the co-ordinator of this crew, and I am blessed as all get-out to be included! woooooooo hoooooooooo! doin' the Texas Two Step over here to celebrate! wanna join me?! or you can just play in the challenge if you are so inclined..... the challenge this week is an 'anything goes', but get this - the prize this week is 6 free images to the winner!!!!! so I do hope you play. and be sure to stop by the other DT members' blogs to tell them congrats, too! you will make their day!
My card uses some of my precious Daisy D's paper stash. The water dots ARE intentional! :) I thought it looked kinda cool for an ocean scene. The sand is stippled over with darker ink to help add extra dimension. The shells were painted with opal shimmerz before coating with crystal effects. Buttons are from my vintage stash and both lace and beaded trims come from JoAnn's. The 'simple pleasures' tag is also from Daisy D's. gosh, I really really miss that company.... heavy sigh......
All of you have a wonderful day and enjoy YOUR simple pleasures! love ya!
