I just had to make a "goldfish" card for my Father-in-Law for his birthday. Every year when he asks us what we want for our birthdays or we ask him, everyone always says "nothing." He always responds back, "If you don't give me any ideas, I'm going to give you a goldfish." One year we got a bowl full of fishy crackers and another year we got a goldfish bowl full of Swedish fish...etc. Well this year, my kids want to give their Grandpa a REAL goldfish. LOL. I can hear him grumble now! So I decided to make him a goldfish card to hold a gift card to their favorite restaurant to go along with the kid's goldfish gift. So if you are reading this and know my Father-in-Law .... shhhhhh.... You can ask me in a couple of weeks how this "fish" story went. :-) Something tells me I'm the one who is going to end up with the real goldfish and he's going to keep the card and the gift certificate!
For those who are interested....I believe this was a Treasure Box Freebie file once upon a time. Isn't it adodrable! It's one of those I saved thinking, how cute is this but what would I ever do with it...... just goes to show, save it if it's cute. You'll find a use for it! :-)
