Make A Splash

Once in a while, I make a card I really LOVE, which makes me smile.  This is one of them.. not the best design or with fancy techniques perhaps, but I love that it is a cheerful card and so very fun to create.  This card came about in the "wee" hours of the morning simply because I wanted to participate in a StampTV challenge - Make A Scene.

A little background story to the making of this card. My friend Carrie (a deep sea diver) recently commented that I had not made any cards with sea creatures which she so loves.  And so, I ordered this stamp set Make A Splash as a result, and yesterday the order arrived!  I love every sea creature in the set! Just so gorgeous - it's not often that I get so excited about a stamp!  This card was made with her in mind, because she has indeed made a "splash" in my life - it's not often we find a friend who is so dear and with whom you have a lot of "loves" in common.

I hope this card brighens your day and perhaps you will "Make A Splash" in someone's life today!
