Hello again!

Sister Stamps had a big new release this month, full of super adorable beach kiddos. If you haven't checked them out yet I highly recommend that you do... cute, cute, cute! I was lucky enough to win one of the new stamps during previews and as soon as the rest were available I placed my order so that she wouldn't get lonely, LOL! And guess what arrived in the mail yesterday... yep, there wasn't a chance that I wouldn't be inking them up almost as soon as I got them out of the package.  ;)

So my card for today features the underwater adventurer, Makai, and I was inspired by Jenny and her fab design team to pair him up with some critters from the previously released Octopus set. The sizing between the stamps is perfect. The papers are Bella Blvd's Camp Out collection, which I know I used recently with a mermaid but it was too great a background to pass up. And the sentiment was a no-brainer because how awesome would it be to glide through the sea, hand in tentacle, with a round little octopus?! The yellow cardstock that the 'awesome' is cut out of looks off in this pic, in person it is a close match to the little yellow fish in the print. I suspect that the shimmery sheen it is coated with reflected too much light when I took the photo, but you'll just have to take my word for that. 

Alrighty time for me to mosey... TTYL!  :)

I won one of the stamps from the Sister Stamps release too. I can't wait to receive mine to create some fun cards. I just placed my order today to get the rest of the cuties.

What an awesome ocean scene. Makai looks like he is having a fab time with his octopus friend. :)

I took a peak at some of your older posts. Your cards are fab. I especially like your coloring.
