Whale Wishes.........PPA152







The PPA Color Challenge and the Fab Friday Sketch set the stage for my "Get whale soon!" card.  This whale makes me smile because he is so cute - and because he reminds me of my recent trip to Florida for Leadership.  He ended up in my suitcase thanks to Prize Patrol and a generous friend!  Yes I did link "generous friend" - you can find out who she is if you want! You will enjoy checking out her wonderful designs!  We had a great time rooming together in Orlando and stayed up way too late talking and laughing about everything from stamping to shoes!  Last year she introduced me to Switchflops...........this year Toms......happy feet are important at Stampin' Up events!  Wonder what she will be walking around in next year?

That whale is so cute -- he makes me smile every time! I love so many of the details on this card -- the rounded bottom corners, the spritzed mist behind the whale, the rhinestones...oh, I could go on and on. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!
