MelJen's Guest Designer Week 2

More from Gina, July's Guest Designer

Happy Saturday!
Let's start the weekend with more inspiration from our July Guest Designer, Gina!
Tom Cat Goes Fishing
I love this image! When I was a kid we had a cat that would hide under the bed and the only way to get him out would be to dangle something for him to chase. One day I said to my mom, "Hey mom! You're cat fishing!" We laughed so hard! For some reason this image reminds me of that day. I got a kick out of this project.. the sentiment cracks me up, considering there's only one "fish" and the "sea" is more like a puddle! LOL!! I colored this with my Copics and used stickles on the water. 

Birthday Cake Oopsy Bear
My daughter picked this image for me to use. She said it was so sad it was going to make her cry and so she wanted me to fix it up and make it a happy card. I am always behind on birthdays! Even when I've marked the calendar, put it in my phone, made a card, had it addressed and stamped!! I am ALWAYS late!! That's what this image and card say to me. "Sorry. I dropped the ball again." But, it is true; it's the thought that counts! :)

I love your cards, Gina!  These are so fun and happy!
See you all next week!

I am so absolutely thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer over at MelJen's! Go by MelJen's Blog and get in on all the fun!! Including this week's challenge "Happy Birthday"!
