Go With The Flow…


EEP!!! I just love this li’l whale guy by Hero Arts–so cute! Adore the sentiment, too! Perfect match for the  Savvy Waves!!!

I’ve been up to the gills (BAH HA HA HAAAA!!! But, I’m totally serious… argh!)  Keep swimming… just keep swimming… That’s been my mantra lately and every time I looked at this whale, this card idea kept drifting in. Apropos, eh?! LOL!

I’m heading off across the country tomorrow… *ginormous grin* Goin’ to see my sweet girl and her family in Florida–I’ll probably hug ‘em so hard their eyeballs will pop outta’ their heads! LOL!

Immediately after we get back from that, I head for Sacramento!

And when I get back from that, I’m gonna put a BIG sign up in my office that sezzzz, “Pace yo’self!” Oy!!!  *smacks self on forehead*

Anyway, please stay tuned over in the CLASSroom at Ellen’s for Hello, Monday! Got sumpin’ in the queue every Monday! ;)

Meantime… my li’l whale guy here is so fun to play with–he’s gettin’ his splash on with an Action Wobble Spring! Check it!

Hope that brought a smile, and that you’re enjoying Spring!!! :)
