This is my card for the monthly themed swap that Terry is hosting on SCS. Each month she will post a theme and we make cards using a Stampin' Up set that we believe follows that thought. This is our eighth month and the theme was "Life's a Beach". So--last month I did not use a SU set and Terry was nice enough to say that is OK. She now has edited the "rules" to say we can use another company if we want. Well--this month, I am not sure my card follows the theme-but Terry said "fish live in the ocean, the ocean is at the beach, it is all good! I had visions of fish "on" the beach and it was not a pretty sight or odor........................
I need to give credit to this card to my demo Sarah--of Stinkin' Cute Cards--her blog link is here. This card is from a card kit I bought awhile ago and I loved the card she designed! I made a few minor changes, but this is Sarah's Creation!
I also got to use one of my new recent purchases. I placed an order a few weeks ago with Dies by Dave and received the set Tide. It makes the fussy cutting of the fish so much easier. I also got the set that matches Lovely as a Tree and I am excited to use that one too! I can see another order in the future as Dave said he is adding some new dies the end of this month...............
