Just Keep Swimming, Swimming, Swimming...

My hubby's been working so hard lately.  He took a second job and is trying so hard to earn some money that we can put away for a house soon.  I appreciate him so much, but sometimes I don't think that I tell him enough.  So I made him a card and hid it in his coat pocket so he'd find it at work today.

I was inspired by the straight lines and orange color in this picture:

And here's the card:

I was originally going to stick with penguins and orange bars, but I love that cute little fish from TAWS's Castaways set and the sentiment was perfect for my husband.  I used white ink to stamp the bubbles and watermark ink to stamp the seaweed.

Thanks for dropping by!
