Go Fish Challenge #14

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

Wow, can you believe it.....April 1st! Yikes, does the time seem to by flying by or is it just my imagination? They say the older you get the faster thing seem...I am beginning to feel that way. Come on, slow down, lol !

Today is my design team day at Go Fish Challenge Blog and we are asked to create something that is fun or funny! I have to say I was struggling with this-it's like my brain was frozen! No kidding.....


I made a fun card (I hope you think it's fun) for my nephew who loves hanging out at the beach and/or pools in the summer. He loves the water and has all these fun pool toys. The beach balls, snorkeling, scuba diving rings, goggles, flippers etc for summer fun. I will be adding a little gift card to the inside so he can go buy a couple new things for the pool. I hope he likes it!



This card base is 5 x 5 and the base layer at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I cut cute Elmo and the layers at 4 12/ plus the layers from the Sesame Street Season's cartridge. I added a small strip of yellow that is 1 1/2 x 5 which I embossed with the dots folder along with a border using a SU border punch. The circle and scalloped circle are from a SU punch and the sentiment is from Pink by Design ~Vacation set. I added some fun bling around the sentiment, a couple little buttons and a little bow to finish the card.

Be sure to stop by Go Fish Challenge Blog and check out what the amazing Design Team has created. Hope you come and join us in the FUN of FUNNY challenge:) Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping,
Sherrie K
