Sea You! (TCPTUES 151)

Hi there! I wanted to get a post in this week for TCP Tuesday! Here is the inspiration pic below. When I first saw this I thought, SUMMER!!! All the pink was a jumping off point and then I was even able to incorporate the cherry. You may be TOTALLY shocked by this, but I did a lot of fussy cutting on this card (I know, I know, I really HATE fussy cutting, so you never see it here, right?) But, my friend Sylvia had given a few tips on fussy cutting on her blog a few weeks ago here. So, I gathered my courage and stamped down my wave stamp several times on different blue papers. I dug out a new pair of MSC tiny scissors from my last Spotted Canary prize package, gathered my courage and took Sylvia's advice to go VERY slowly, and I think it turned out ok, don't you? I still can't say I'm a fan, because I really struggle with PATIENCE. I like to work pretty fast and fussy cutting is NOT fast. But, at least I know now that I CAN do it, if I want to. :) I hope you like my whale, isn't she cute? Have a great day!
