Sea Creatures

Hi there, everyone! The last couple of days were pretty busy, especially at work, and now, when I finally got some days off, it's time to pay a visit to my blog. Today, I would like to share with you a card, actually 2 of them, inspired by one of Vera Rhuhay's amazing creations featuring Whale Wishes stamps set from Mama Elephant. When I first saw this set with beautiful orcas I couldn't but buy it since these one of the world's most powerful predators mean a lot to me. They bring back the memories of the time spent working at summer camp on Orcas Island, WA, where I was lucky enough to meet my hubby and actually see one of these gorgeous creatures. Wow, it's been already 6 years. Time really flies by... And now, without further ado, let's get right to the first card:

Once this card was ready, I've decided to replace a whale with a duck from one of my favorite stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs. And here is how this creation turned out:

Not bad, huh?:)
I hope you've enjoyed today's cards! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping buy!

  8. Uuu, kakšni magični voščilnici sta nastali. Te mogočne orke sem ravno te dni gledala pri ME. In prav zavidam bližnje srečanje z njimi :) Tudi druga z račko je prav prikupna. Me spominja na osamljenega grdega račka. ;)
    P.s: Ne morem verjet, kako nisem že prej opazila povezave do teh krasnih štamipljke Gerde Steiner Designs. Moram se večkrat ustavit tukaj. :)
