storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

29 July 2010


Howdy people -

So I finally got around to Monday's CAS challenge - to take inspiration from the title One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  I kept it pretty literal, as you can see here:

My fishes (from A Muse) are indeed red and blue. I put that MA in English to good use with my editing marks on the sentiment (from SU's Occasional Quotes and an old random alpha set). And yes, I used a pun on purpose. Don't get used to it. The image and sentiment are both stamped on glossy white cs, with a Bermuda Bay textured base (3.5x5), some PTI bitty dot paper, and ribbon from the stash because it needed another bit of red to look balanced. That dang knot wouldn't quite lay straight, though. Oh well.

Marty update: she had her bone marrow tests today, and she came home a little while ago just as lively as usual, even though she looks mangy now that she's been shaved in 4 places. Oy. Now we wait for results until at least Monday, and perhaps all the way until next Friday. Oy again. But she's a happy cat -- the roller coaster is harder on us than her!

I'm looking forward to hitting Maker Faire this weekend -- it's the first time it's come to Detroit (and the whole Midwest, actually), and it'll be just up the road from us. Cool. What are your weekend plans? Enjoy them!

That is so adorable! I love the text editing!

So cute! I'm glad all those years of English education finally paid off. I think the knot looks fine; it goes with the whimsicalness of the whole card (although not getting my knots to lie flat annoys me, too).

Man, next Friday!?!? How many kitty bone marrow samples do they have to do? I'm glad it didn't bother her too much. Is Dexter secretly laughing at all her bald spots?

Hey! So good to hear that Marty is in good spirits. We will have to plan a sunday to get together and crop and catch up on CHA gossip! I have a few girls from Windsor that want to come over to join us as well. Have a good weekend!

This is such a fun, girly card!

I'm glad Marty survived her first bone marrow test. The poor girl must be so embarrassed. Pit'r sends her sympathy as she's also been shaved in four places! The bare tummy looks the funniest, although the forepaws look mighty funky, too. ;)

Enjoy Maker Faire! We have a long weekend here so I'm just going to enjoy the extra day with hubby home. :D
