Welcome Whale

Correction: My watermark in the photos is incorrect. I must have not noticed that I needed to change it. The images on this card are The Cat's Pajamas and SU! Sorry!
I have a confession to make. Are you ready? Two weeks ago when I made this card for Saturday's SFYTT, it wasn't my first attempt. I was so tired when I sat down to make my card, that I really couldn't think straight. I stayed up way to long and spent way too long on a card that I ended up by not being very proud of. I guess I knew that I was capable of more. So...I woke up Saturday morning and started again, working with things that made me happy and I ended up really liking the results.
The more I looked at my first card, the more it started to grow on me. I decided to share it with you today. I thought it was interesting that I used almost the same color combo on both cards; completely unintentional. I guess I was in a blue/green mood.





I absolutely had to have this darling whale stamp from TheCat'sPajamas, especially after being tempted by some of my favorite designers. Yes...you all know who you are! LOL! I didn't really do it justice...like I said, I was tired. I am itching to sit down and use it again when I have more time. He is just so stinkin' cute! I used a lot of PTI goodness (embellishments and paper) on this card as well. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest and of course...thanks for fluttering by!

Sorry Kelly, but i don't think you could make a bad card - I love them all. The whale sure is cute but I guess my all time favourites are the ones you do with the tea for two set and also the White Rabbit - just love all that you do with them. I love looking at all cards - you put so much into them.

Love your confession! I have moments like that way too often it seems. I will say this card is fabulous! I love the whale's hat! These are super soft pattern papers and colors. Pure cuteness!
