Baby Whale

Can I buy some time?!?! I have many ideas for cards I would like to make, but not enough time:(  Thus, the inconsistent postings lately. The card below is for a sketch challenge found here, CCMC192 and a color challenge found at Just Add Ink, #108.  I punched a 1 3/4 inch circle and adhered the pool party zig-zags that I die cut using the Tasteful Trim die. I stamped the whale from Fox & Friends in Island Indigo and then cut it out. I punched with my paper piercer around the circle and added the banner made from the Petal Cone die with "Welcome Baby" from the Short & Sweet stamp set stamped in Early Espresso. A button was added to finish it off. This is a layout I plan to come back to as I have other cards I would like to make using it.  Thanks for stopping by!

Personal Note: My niece's basketball team made it to STATE!  We are very excited! We will have family staying with us, so I have a list of things I want to get done before they arrive tomorrow night. The only bummer is that my niece tore a ligament in her ankle, so she is limited on the amount of time she can play:( I did get samples of the Prom invites done and one has been chosen. Since they needed them like yesterday, I am planning on trying to get them all stamped and completed by Saturday. OK, I'm off to tackle my list and try to get outside to enjoy this beautiful weather.
