Goldfish Thank You card

Hello everyone!  It has been a busy month with little time for cardmaking and blogging.  We were able to go away for a week, and I needed a card to thank the person watching our pets.  What a huge help that is!  Anyone with pets, I am sure, agrees!

I used a goldfish stamp that was given to me as a RAK.  It is marked, "Bizzaro, Providence, RI." Is anyone familiar with this company?  I wonder if they are still in business.  I then just used some dies and patterned paper to fit the sketch I was using.  The fish stamp didn't fit right into the oval dies I have, so I had to substitute a circle.

Supplies: Bizzaro Fish stamp, Gina K Designs Lipstick ink, My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Tangarine 6x6 Paper pad, Gina Marie X Stitiched circle dies, Cheery Lynn Designs Thank you die, American Crafts ribbon

I would love to play along with the Dies R Us Anything Goes with Dies challenge and the Tuesday Morning Sketches #417 challenge.

How are you spending the end of summer?  We are trying to relax until school starts. Luckily, we don't have very much back to school shopping to do.  Have a great day!

What a lovely thank you card Heidi! I love how you have tied in the PP colours to the die-cuts! That bright yellow ribbon and the black sentiment really pop! And yes, when I had my little dog it would have been a great weight off my mind if I had had someone to look after her once in a while! Have a great day! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

The yellow ribbon really pops and love the use of the patterned papers and the the colour of the fish. Bet it was a weight off your mind knowing your pets where being looked after? x

so cute, we always took ours to the kennel when we went on trips, one time we had a friend come to take care of Peanut she about tore a hole in his shoe biting him, guess she didn't like people coming into the house without us there. That fish has great detail to it, you know I don't think I have ever heard of that company.
