Going to show you my make for this week, and it is indeed, a WHALE.

Added glossy accents to his water spout..



A Marianne Creatables Light house die and my new ships wheel die [Couture Creations]



Papers from Rosies Studio and the sky was done with blue eye shadow..and a fiskars wave punch for the  sea.

A piece of scrap ribbon tied into a knot, and we were done...

Cute whale, so nicely colored and I love the added die cuts for a water scene and a nautical look. Super!
I've got no plans for the weekend. A 5day visit from my MIL and 3 days business trip after that kind of makes me feel I deserve some time to do whatever I feel like. It's also the reason why I'm a bit late catching up on your older cards.

Oooo what a super sweet whale and a great layout too - my 8 year old is hoping to see whales in the wild, when we visit Alaska in August, Luv Sam x
