Its a very cloudy Saturday morning here in New Zealand. I was just checking some emails and about to go do some chores but Minnie the not-so-little-kitten is sleeping on my lap, so I have to stay here now. Perfect time to share this card with you!!
I haven't had the chance to join in a CASology challenge for months. I saw the 'Marine' cue card the other day and was thinking about it while gardening. I suddenly had this idea and scribbled the design on my hand. I really must buy a little note book to take gardening with me as I get so many ideas while up to my elbows in mud.......:
I've been obsessed with Killer Whales since I was a little girl. I haven't had the experience of seeing one in real life but its the very top of my bucket list!! A group of Killer Whales in called a 'pod' and I thought it would be a great way to say to someone your part of my family!!
I started by stamping the Killer Whales (from Mama Elephant 'Whale Wishes') on white CS and fussy cutting them out. I then grabbed two blue paint chips (for the ocean) and used a Simon Says Stamp 'Border Waves' die on each one. I glued them together and then to the card front.
I had completely forgotten about my new MFT 'Little Lowercase' dies that arrived last month and used them on some black CS, die-cutting each letter twice and gluing together. I adhered them to the card along with this sentiment (from Neat and Tangled 'Beach Day') which worked perfectly. To finish off I glued on some half-circle black beads.
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'For the Boys'. I think this card could definitely work for a male friend or family member!!
Time to go and sort out some breakfast/brush for everyone. I've got a lot of cards to make this weekend, so thank goodness the weather isn't all that flash. Hopefully I will be allowed to craft all day tomorrow with it being Mother's Day but I'm sure laundry and picking up crap will creep into my day somewhere......lol!!
