make a splash...

This is post 1 of 2 for me today, make sure you check out my Skipping Stones Design post HERE.


Can you believe this is Day 4 of The Craft's Meow June Previews?!  How did you like yesterday's featured sets, Sending you Sunshine and Just Sayin'?!  Fun Sets, eh?!


Today's set is It's a Shore Thing by Michelle Bertuzzi!

I combined It's a Shore Thing with Nina's Just Sayin' set...

This is what I came up with:



The waves....you gotta love the waves....once you see It's a Shore Thing in it's entirety, you'll realize how much fussy cutting I managed to do on this fun shaped card and clear embossed each strip....Isn't that whale a-dorable?!!!!  I stamped him with Memento London Fog...stamps like a dream...the sentiment, Make a Splash! is from the It's a Shore Thing set...the word bubble is ala Just Sayin'.



Make sure you make all the rounds to The Craft's Meow Design Team Members...you can find the list on The Craft's Meow Store Blog.

What would new release festivities be without chances to win prizes? Yep, we'll draw THREE of you to win It's a Shore Thing... one from each of three of the design team blogs. You'll have until 10:00 pm Pacific tonight to make the rounds and leave comments. We'll announce the winners in tomorrow's The Craft's Meow Store Blog post. 

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!!!
