Its all the wave

So on this week's episode of TCPTUES149, Alma is doing a Retro challenge, which is to pick any previous challenge. And I thought Amy's supply challenge, TCPTUES121, to use all them shiney cut-up dies was perfect.

Among my impulse buys this past holiday was TCP's Whale of a friend. Now personally I think the "you're a whale of a friend" sentiment is sort of mean. Think about it, if you got a card that said that how would you feel? Do you really want to be a called a whale anything? N thinks I'm nuts, but honestly...

However the little whale is just way too adorable to pass up and I thought he'd make perfect baby boy cards. I paired him with my all time favorite boy paper (which was conveniently already on my desk) and die cut a bunch of waves for him to swim in. And because I'm a glitter fiend I couldnt resist edging the waves with some sparkley accents.

The Dets:
Stamps: TCP Whale of a friend, Amuse senti
Paper: MB notecard, PTI enchanted evening & simply chartreuse, BG oliver
Ink: Memento black, Versafine black, copics
Accessories: TCP wave & snowflake die, PTI enchanted evening button, divine twine, stickles, ek stickos


  1. Super cute!! That image is very sweet and I love the waves. Great paper and love the sparkle on the waves. I agree about the sentiment, I wouldn't want to get a card with that sentiment. haha! TFS! :)

  2. Ja.

    You're a WHALE of a friend.


    Now...the question is, do I mean it the way I see it...or the way YOU see it?

    Hmm...hmmm... :) hehehehehe...

    Adorable card, btw! :) The whale coloring is pretty neat-o!

  3. What an adorable card! Super duper!
