Sunny Days

Have been nice! We're having a stretch of blue skies here, and decided to take advantage by doing a quickie overnight trip to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium. As my almost-teen would say, "This place is boss!" It really is amazing. If ever you're anywhere within driving distance, it's soooo worth the trip. This is said DS, mesmerized by the gigundous tank that includes, among other fish, mantas and 2 whale sharks:
He's always loved aquariums. When I watched him yesterday, I could see the three-year old version come out. The one where the wonder of the ocean kind of takes over. Here's what had him so rapt:
I was wondering if the ray was having problems with his rudder, but he would take breaks. :)

But I digress,
Getting those Christmas thank-yous done and in the mail by the time I go back to teach Monday will be a challenge!
Here's the first:
It's also for the challenges at:
4 Crafty Chicks Crazy Egg Challenge - Use something new. Used the new Verve set and dies I got from my mom for Christmas to make her card.
Frosted Designs - Something New.
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Mojo Monday - use this sketch:

If you scroll down one entry, I got a square one done, too!

The recipe:
Images are Verve's Sunny Days; its coordinating die set cut the greenery. Paper is Echo Park -  Victoria's Garden. Lace and ribbon are Really Reasonable Ribbon, scallop and regular circles were cut with a Nestie.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy something amazing, as we did in ATL. Please leave a comment, and come again soon!
