Thanks a Ton!

Yipee - it's Hump Day!
Yipee - I'm going out for dinner tonight so I don't have to cook!
Yipee - Life is good.

Wow - don't know where that came from, but we'll go with it.
Today's card uses the colours from yesterday's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge. And, since I'm getting ready for my May Technique classes - I decided to use the colour scheme while planning one of the cards.
We're going to be doing the Bubble Blowing Background technique - and I thought it worked perfectly with this little whale.
I blew the bubbles using the Island Indigo - although they are a bit muted, and I decided that our little whale needed some swimming company, so I die cut a bunch of his friends.  Pretty quick and easy - and the technique is so much fun.

The class will be on Friday, May 5.
If you're not on my mailing list, e-mail me and I can add you can join in the fun.
And here's some more fun.....

We must be on the same wave length Joan, I used this stamp set for my entry as well, lol. Very cute, love the little fishes. Haven't tried the blowing bubbles technique yet, but it does go perfect with the card. Fun!
