Sunny smiles...

TGIF my friends!
These fun Beach Babes from Hello Bluebird were just what I needed to brighten an otherwise rather meh day. The two with the inflatables particularly caught my eye and I could just see them both floating out in the water without a care in the world. So I made sure not to ink up the bottom half of each stamp allowing me to color the water right up and over them. Then as I was looking at the set the little giggling pig could totally be plugging his nose while under water... so that's just what I did. I partially stamped him down at the bottom of the card in a lighter grey ink then colored the blue water right over top so he appears to be swimming under the water. Then I finished the scene with a sentiment borrowed from the Hippos on Holiday set and the distant gulls flying from the Seaside Girls set. I don't know about you but this one makes me smile. :)

Later gators!
