What a super idea to create underwater slider cards Ardyth! These would be a hit with anyone, no matter the age. Love the colours on them & of course, your colouring skills are wonderful. This is the best release I've seen in that I can say, for the first time, I want it ALL. Each stamp set appeals to me & with those fun "punny" sayings, they are sol versatile & I could see using them over & over.

brinkleyboy said...

I am so in awe of how everyone used the same stamp set, yet created totally awesome cards that all were wonderful yet different from each other. Your using the slider concept was really thinking out of the box!

MiamiKel said...

You had me at the big 'ol eyeballs on the octopus! How sublime! I love interactive cards and yours is just bursting with creativity and fun under the sea colors! I love how the video ties it all in with the visual on this ab-sea-lutely darling card! TFS!
