Happy Tuesday, little fishies!  Look at this SWEET inspiration Arielle has for us all today at the ColourQ:

Man, I wish I had some fishy stamps!!  Isn’t this adorable!  I had to make do with a little tiny fish stamp from PTI’s Tiny Treats Valentine set:

I colored them with Copics, added a little sparkle here and there, and used SU’s new Fancy Fan embossing folder for the background.  My layout is based loosely on the iSpy Sketches sketch for this week:

And I had to make just one little fish march to the beat of a different drum:

I just LOVE the combo….I wish I had time to make a few more cards with it, and I hope you love it enough to participate with the other CQC designers!  Be sure to pop over to the ColourQ blog to play along, see the samples, and see who Arielle added to the design team!  SO excited to have her with us! 

I think I have a little monkey on my hands:

Thanks for your cute ideas. I just got a stamp set from "Stamps of Life" that has a swimming turtle. It would fit so well into this design. Your designs fit my style of card making, so thanks much! And as I have been babysitting my almost 3 granddaughter, I sooo look forward to seeing the pictures and "antics" of yours--truly a blessing!

Really cute card - and cute inspiration for the color challenge! As for the peanut -- my first thought was of a Marine in the making! Higher degree of difficulty in the push-ups! (I wonder what that says about me!) LOL
