TSC, Christmas card -swap card

Good morning, I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday morning.  I have one cup of coffee down and ready for a refill, so mine is good.

This is a card I made for our Twisted Sister challenge this week.  Tater gave the challenge, she wanted us to make a ocean card and one stipulation was no pink.   Tate hates pink, I love pink so I am always giving her a hard time about the pink.  I finally named the pinks I use Tater pink and I tell her that is different than regular pink.  I wasn't thinking or I would have put three pink boats on here.  ~grin~  I have fun with the banter with Tater about pink.  She will be thrilled that she does not have to wear her anti pink goggles to look at this one.  I am not sure if these boats are big enough to be in the huge ocean, but that is the good thing about making cards, it can be anything we want it to be.

Anything challenge - Summer days 
Party Time Tuesday's Challenge: By the sea.

Here is a card that I made for a monthly card swap with my stamping friends.  We were to make a punch card.  It was really easy to make.  On this card the ornaments are popped up, but I made several that were not and I think I like them just as well.   At least without the pop ups, it could be mailed with no extra postage.  As much as we stampers have to put extra postage on our hand made cards, one would not think the Postal Service would be thriving, but according to the news, they are not.
Thanks for stopping by today.
