You're A Whale Of A Friend {MTSC84}



Hi there!  It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's sketches!!  I have to admit that I struggled with today's sketch, but once I got going, I am thrilled with the result!!  I paired this week's sketch with TCPTues118 to use twine on your card or project, DTGD10notimetostamp, DTGD10suzannejdean,


I got a new Cat's Pajamas order last week and could not wait to get this whale inky!  I used some Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday dp that I've had for a LONG time and just forgot about!   I also love this wave die!  Isn't it fun?  The buttons are from PTI and the twine is the new Divine Twine in Lime from TCP!  I did a share with some friends so we could split the cost!   The sentiment is one long sentiment but I wanted it to fit where I put it, so I simply masked the words to break it up and used a small square punch to make them into little sentiment flags.  What do you think?

Don't forget to check out Mercy's Muse's to see what they did with this sketch!
