Fathom Calmsea & cat hammock

Happy Sunday! I have a card and something fun to share! =)

First is a card that I made for the Cracked Glass challenge over at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge Blog. I was lucky enough to win this little beauty from one of Amy Young's (she is the talented artist that created her!) pre-release sneak peek giveaways.

Her name is Fathom Calmsea. Isn't that a beautiful name? It's such a pretty image and it's so fun to color. I also adore her little sea house friend that came with the stamp. His name is Lio.

Everything on my card was from the card kit that Amy included in my candy. I tell ya, that girl knows how to put together a fabulous card kit!! Thank you so much for the candy, Amy! I love it! =) You can find all of Amy's fabulous stamps at All That Scraps.

Here is a little fun photo for ya:

We made a hammock for our cats using PVC pipe and canvas. It's really easy to make and very inexpensive. We made it big intending to have both of our cats resting on it, but it's obvious that Mr. Stripey (Jamie) here is a giant... Well, at least he likes it and is really relaxed. Shhh... don't tell him that I posted this embarrassing photo of him! =)

Hope you have a happy Sunday!
