Just keep swimming...

There's just something about Mondays, isn't there? How they sneak up on you, despite how many days off you've had. And, did you notice that when you have a Monday off, Tuesday can act just like a Monday?? But like Dory said, "Just keep swimming!" (Love, love, LOVE the movie Finding Nemo!)

Well, this little guy is swimming by to wish everyone a mellow Monday.

Can you guess what punch was used to make the fish? Yup, it's the good ol' Blossoms Petal Punch! (Are you sick of me telling you how versatile this punch is??) I love punches that can be used for more than one thing, and I think this little fish is a perfect example.

I sponged the sea (but it kind of looks more like a sky - oh, well), used Pumpkin Pie ink and card stock for the fish, and used the Little Leaves Sizzlit for the underwater plants. I also cut some thin strips of Always Artichoke and Old Olive card stocks for that 3-D look.

So..."Hey there, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you wanna know what you've gotta do? Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim!"

Have a great Monday -- or get through it any way you can and know that you can have wine when you get home!
