You're a GREAT Catch

Hi everyone. What a great weekend. Maddie had a fun time at her school dance, and we went to see Megan's school play. Sammy sat through the whole play, which is a big deal since it was almost two hours long. Bravo, Megan! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as well :)

I finished my valentines for the girls today, that I will be giving them tomorrow. 
Since I couldn't *hide* the mouth of my fish with my Gypsy-
I only inked the eye from the Critter Faces stamp set
 from Peachy Keen Stamps. I added glossy accents to the hearts
and to the eye of the fish. If you haven't ever added glossy
accents to your stamped faces yet, Kimberly at My Craft Spot
has an excellent video showing you exactly how, here.
I did pop the hearts up with pop dots. 
  • Birthday Bash cartridge pg.31
  • 4" card & tag stamp base and white layer 
  • Create a Critter cartridge pg.43
  • 1 1/2" foundation fish and layers (I *hid* the eye with my Gypsy)
  • CAC cartridge pg. 66
  • .45, .35. and .25" layer 1 heart (sized with the Gypsy)
I wish my pictures would turn out better. Maddie took a sneak peek at the cards and she said they were the cutest ones yet. I wrote *hugs and fishes* on the backside of the card. Sammy is going to be excited to get some of her favorite snacks (goldfish crackers) for the *special treat*. I love it!!!
Have a great day!


  1. Those are sooo cute!! I love the orange polka dot paper! ANd the little hearts are perfect!

  2. Super cute, Allyson!! Love the glossy accents - one of my favorite things to use on cards! Thanks for the link to my video. :-)

    The face on the fish is darling - you do a great job with the Peachy Keen stamps!
