Best Fishes card made using the Animal Antics cartridge and the Under the Sea stamp set.

Hello, friends!

Today is going to be short and sweet as I have food poisoning and feel so very terrible! I thought I have had it before, but now I know I must have had a virus. This is no joke! Fingers crossed I am better tomorrow!

Today's card is another Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge. We were supposed to make something depicting summer fun. Well, this little fish from Animal Antics just about says it all to me!


The patterned paper used is a retired line from Close To My Heart called Footloose.

Cute card! Hope you feel better soon - be sure to drink tons, even if it is only small sips at a time. There is always a strong risk of dehydration with that - and then you have more complications.
