August 14, 2013 Water Otter

Doodle Pantry Digi Water Otter, Doodle pantry DP, Amuse bakers twin, button from stash, Kraft cs, wave punch

How often do you see just what you are looking for???  Well this month there was a special request from a chemo buddy that liked otters and I knew Laurie had released this cute little fellow this month and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  The inside has the sentiment also from Doodle put a couple rows of waves, highlighted them with my Wink of Stella clear pen (love this new item).  I tried several white pens and none of them would work so they are no longer taking up precious space!!.  The Wink of Stella pen also comes in white but our LSS was out so next time I go that is on my must have list.  Love the modified gate fold card - it is a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece of cs scored at 2 3/4 in. and 7 in. and the DP measures 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 and the other side is 1 1/4 by 5 1/4.  Easy peasy and love the look, this is the second card I have done this way this month.  Found this is Summer 2013 CardMaker magazine, so many fun ideas.  This is in the mail and hoping it will bring some smiles .  entered in
