*inkin' of you*

Have you visited the Design Studio over at the A Muse Lounge yet? You're in for a real treat! You'll find loads of inspiration there! I ran across this card by the Stampin' Queen herself, Miss Julie, and it inspired me to dig out my sadly neglected octopus stamp. I bought this cute submarine stamp from Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet months ago and just HAD to color it orange and pink! {wink} I was also able to use one of my new Martha Stewart punches to create some funky multi-colored seaweed. And as an added bonus... it just so happens that my card qualifies for Heather's Share Your Spark Fridays challenge to create something using an image or sentiment you've cut out!

I'm beginning to feel like I'm living on an iceberg. We haven't seen above zero temperatures here in Iowa for days, and the kids are on their third consecutive *snow day*! Of course, they're lovin' it, but I'm nearly frozen half to death and can't wait for a bit milder weather! If you're hearing a strange noise, just ignore it. It's probably just my teeth chattering.

Oh wow! Love this :) Gotta get me that sub and I have a friend who is terrified of octopuses... would be the perfect card for her! LOL! Ok, and did you color those Martha Stewart leaves or are there some new ones I haven't seen yet?

jill Grace said...

Ok, would probably help if I had read FIRST that it was a punch :)
