Sending Happy Thoughts

>> Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Thank you so much to all who joined us for the blog hop yesterday...We've had a wonderful time creating with these stamps, so I hope you had fun along the way too.

Congrats to Kathy Vogel, you've won the 6 stamp prize package!  Please email your information to to claim your prize.

Now, on to today's card share....Is this Happy Octopus not the cutest ever???!  I love his smiling face and I just think he's the best for any kind of card :)  He's just stamped, colored with Copic markers and cut out with my Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I decided to dry emboss my backgrounds using some of my old Fiskars texture plates, but I made sure I stamped my Bubbles first.  I added the pennant with the sentiment,  Sending you happy thoughts, as my own take on a "speech or thought bubble". 

I added a strip of card stock stamped with the Open Plaid in a matching blue, and finished it off with large brads and a hanging charm, hopefully keeping the card on the boyish side of things.  

Here's a better shot of the dry embossing on the bottom, staying with the water theme :) 

Thanks for taking a peek, and remember all the newly released stamps can be found right here!
