Tea Party Card.....Get Well 'Fishes'

As part of Muddamark's Teapot Tuesday Cheater's Club, I was able to post this pretty early today.  I am heading to the beach....well.....not exactly....am headed to a friend's cottage near the beach for a get together with our extended Old Farts Club.  I plan to do my swim exercise before heading there.  We shall see if I can get that done.....lol!!!

This week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge (can be found at this thread by clicking on the challenge with the blue circle with an arrow) has a Destination Station (meaning a place to be sent.)  An 8 year old received a bone marrow transplant from his younger sister but he is still sturggling with this challenge.  This little guy loves to fish, so we are making cards with rods, reels, hooks, worms, fish, and the sort to cheer him up.  And...if we have a girlie card in our stash (who doesn't????) we are also sending one to his very brave and generous little sister.  If you have a bit of time, you could play along......or just send a cards of encouragement.

This image is an unmounted, not labelled stamps.  The sentiment was computer generated.  The bubbles come from a recently released set, Flourished Sea Creatures from the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection from Mark's Finest Papers.  Other than that, it is pretty easy to see what I did.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!
