Fishy Love! - FCCB#121- Challenge Me Monday

Happy Monday,

Did you have a wonderful weekend?  Did you get to relax or did you play too much?  As usual it was another relaxing weekend here at the 'Cat House!' 

This week for the 121ST Fantabulous Cricut Challenge we are celebrating "Wedding Bliss!"  In days gone by June was the wedding month.  Now, there are wedding in every month.  I have a friend who got married on Valentine's day so he would not forget his anniversary, smart man!!! 

I was just not into the traditional wedding things.  So, as I pondered what to create I remembered a project that I had created with fish for a birthday card, click here to see that design.  When I am stumped I pull out old faithful, "Create A Critter."  I hope you like my Fishy Love card.

I think these seahorses are adorable.  Here's to fishy kisses!!

  • Lime mat cut @ 4.125" x 5.375"
  • Turquoise mat cut @ 4" x 5.25"

  • Dotted sentiment mat cut @ 0.625" x 3.75"

I Love U:  CREATE A CRITTER, page 49, Koala and Balloon cut @ 1" using Phrase feature.

Now it's your turn.  Create a project using the theme "Wedding Bliss" and link it back to Fantabulous Cricut.  Don't forget to stop by my design sister's blogs and give them some "Fishy Comment Love" ... we all like to have kudos in our quivers.  Here is some more Fishy inspiration ...
