Be Seein' You!

Hi There! This card was a lot of fun to make and it is bright and cheery, like the person for whom it was made :)

The dance teacher of my children is a uni student and she is leaving this weekend to venture interstate and complete her degree. It is a great opportunity for her; we'll miss her dearly, though we know we'll see her on her visits home. She's a gem to be sure - one of those generous people who give and give and expect nothing in return. She is also highly motivated and I know she'll go a long way in life and we wish her every success.

I am entering this card into two challenges: Lawn Fawn's Facebook Mini Challenge - Quote: 'Use any type of letter stickers (for example, Thickers) and Bannerific together in a crafty project by Thursday night (September 2nd) to be entered to win a prize' and Card Positioning System  blog's CPS Sketch 182.

The card:


I used the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder on white cardstock, rounded the corners and placed it onto the card front. I then stamped in Stazon each of the gorgeous Lawn Fawn creatures from the set Critters In The Sea onto various colourful card stocks and cut them out. I pop dotted the whale as he is the star of this card!  I stamped the whale's spout and 'have a whale of a time' from the same set, curving the sentiment to fit between the whale and dolphin - gotta love that you can do that with clear stamps! Lawn Fawn's Bannerific stamp was then adorned with American Crafts foam Thickers Rockabye - not a goodbye, but a 'Be Seein' You' or 'Be Sea-in' You'!?!  LOL. I added pearls to finish it off and pop dotted it onto the card front and placed Cotton Candy Stickles on the hermit crab's shell.

Have a great night!

May your days be filled with inspiration,
