Fish tank fiasco!

The last couple of days have been so stressful that I just haven't really feel like creating. Don't you hate days like that?! I know that stamping would make me feel better but I just did not have the chance to escape to my craft room. Today I finally just bit the bullet and went for it. After getting up every 2-3 min. (not even kidding!) I finally got a good five minutes to just sit and stamp. Then I hear my oldest say "Mommy, Kayla is messing with my beta!" Kayla is the two year old diva. I go into the kitchen and there is Kayla sitting on top of the island. *who knows how she got up there this time* trying frantically to get the lid back on to Clara-the-male-but-we're-pretending-it's-a-girl 's fish tank. That wouldn't be too bad but..... she had spilled the entire container of fish food all over the counter AND in the fish tank! So I had to take a break to clean out the fish tank. *sigh*


Here is the sketch challenge for today-














And here is my card
I combined it with yesterday's sketch challenge which was to use chocolate chip, pretty in pink and certainly celery.


Supplies: Stamps- Rubberstampede Cherry blossom, TAC Trendy Greetings. Paper- chocolate chip, pretty in pink, certainly celery, white. Ink- black stazon, chocolate chip, pretty in pink, certainly celery. Accessories- Cuddlebug and Swiss dots embossing folder, ribbon, SU punch.
Please check out the poll on the top right side of my blog, I would love your input!

sorry about the fish...just remember the story, write it down or keep your blog forever...you will treasure these *difficult* moments later. I will be honest, I don't remember your old banner, but LOVE the new springy one! Keep up the good work, fish and all!

I would never have thought to combine these colours, but I love it! Only one of the many reasons that I look forward to seeing your creations.
