Welcome! I think I'm really pushing it with the title of this post, but I couldn't resist!

When I started this card I had sharks in mind, not dolphins, but by the time I was finished I had added our new friend Splash the Dolphin so they went back to being dolphins.

Here's the stamps I used in my card ~

and here's how they came together ~

This was definitely a "quickie" of a card. I simply stamped a fin by only inking that part of Splash, then added waves on either side. Then I moved on to a new line and stamped the fin and waves once again. I did it 4 times in all. Instead of coloring all of the paper with my markers, I dry rubbed turquoise ink in a circular pattern. I also went over my black wave lines using a blue bic marker. I cut out the top along the edge of the waves and fin and layered it all on bright blue paper and then white. I attached it all to my folded dark blue card and stamped the bottom right edge with the fun in the sun saying.

To finish it off, I stamped Splash, colored and cut him out and after slicing across the top of a center wave I slid him into the "waves" and taped him down.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'd like to thank everyone for their response to last weeks question of "How do you cure loss of mojo?". Unfortunately I ran out of time this week, but hopefully by next Saturday I'll have a wonderful list of things you can try if it ever happens to you. ( I had some great tips too!)

If you'd still like to share your technique on unblocking stampers block, ask for some suggestions on a problem you have, or share a tip or trick please email me at I'm sending out blog candy to anyone who's suggestion I use! New Release blog candy!!!
