Fuzzy brain

Woke up with a migraine this morning, took my rescue meds, and now my brain is fuzzy. Headache is better,  not gone, but better. However, you really don't want to hear about that...you'd rather see what pinged around in my little brain...(minus the pain, of course...)

So I decided to play at CAS(E) this Sketch, and after several recycled attempts, I came up with something. It's flipped, but the basic sketch is there. And I'm in this turquoise and orange mood...go figure. Must still be dominating my thoughts after seeing the TAWS inspirational challenge (here's the post). I just went with it. First check out the CAS(E) sketch:


Nice. Sweet, simple, clean. Fun!  N@Ali always makes killer cards. Love her work! And here's my take.


A little whimsy for your Monday. I cut out a fish bowl with my cricut, and used a computer generated font. All the stamps are from DeNami, and they are just the cutest little things! I colored the fish with Copics, and the other inks are from SU. CAS. Raise your hand if you love white space...then go have a little happy dance.

I wish my brain would ping up something as good as yours did. So cute!

Reminds me of the gold fish crackers in my cupboard. I love that fishbowl shape and how you got this fun scene from the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

I love white space, Bevie, you know I do, but I do not love migraines and I'm sorry you woke up with a doozy. In your dooziness, you've made a delightful whimsical card! I love your fishy wishes!! Take care!

My hands are up in the air too! Yep, you got some mighty fine white space happen' here....mighty fine!!!

What an incredibly clever idea! The fuzzies must not have made it to the creative lobe of your sore brain, because you totally rocked this challenge. I love the wee athletic guy that is going for a bit of a tour outside of the bowl!

I fish you feel better soon :)

Bev, I am so sorry about your migraine, no fun at all! I get them too. Your card is just too cute and those little fish so sweet! Feel better!

Hands up on the white space (I like 'seeing' it better than 'doing' it, ummm, 'making' it?). Your take on the sketch is clever++ and adorable. Cute fishes, great colours, all around winner - and done with a headache? You are nothing short of remarkable! Sorry to hear about the migraine (hope my long em didn't add to the strain!). Feel better soon, my friend. THANK YOU for commenting on my Flower Fusion...I'm happy dancing!!

Cute little fishes! Love your card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a very nice comment. Much appreciated. I just posted a card with little fish, too. Must be something in the air. Hope you'll stop by again. Sorry to hear about the migraine, too.
