Grillin' and Chillin' Bug Hop coming soon!

Well, it is raining, AGAIN!
Goodness, we have had enough rain already. 

I want to remind you all that myself and 38 other designers have been getting ready to bring you the first ever Bug Hop x 2, Grillin' & Chillin! 
That's right, we're kicking off the summer season with two weekends of Bug hopping. 
So you can participate with the us, there will be a challenge each weekend with the chance to win a great prize.
Each of the designers over the two weekends will also have blog candy. 
So that's two weekends of of blog candy, prizes and good old Bug Hopping fun! It doesn't get any better than that. It all starts May 28 at 7am CST.

I was catching up on the blogs I follow this morning and saw that 
I have not used my wobbles in a while so it inspired me to do a little card for the challenge. 
I have also been playing with my new E2. 
Wow- there is a lot to learn and get to know about this new machine. 

One of the carts the machine comes with is American Alphabet. 
There are some great cuts on this cartridge.
I picked the fish and matched it to a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Charmed Life stamp set. 

The fish would be cute on a wobble, bobbing around under the sea....right?

Here's how I did it....
All paper from my stash
Card base,  a scallop circle on p. 23 of Elegant Edges,  was sized using my gypsy to 4.25" square, duplicated the shape and placed it next to the first one to make a folded card. 
I also welded a rectangle between the shapes for better folding.
Scallop circle layers cut at 4.25"  as well from Elegant Edges, p. 23
Fish/layers cut at 2" from American Alphabet, p. 39
Bubbles/layers cut at 2.15" from Sponge Bob 
Sentiment from Scrappy Mom Charmed life stamp set
Gems and doodles with my gel pen as well as a bit of ribbon from my stash
