Long Time...

Y'all know I love me a good pun, right?  Well, I had a sketch and a color combination in mind and then I saw the sea turtle stamp and I couldn't help it, I laughed out loud and made this.

OH THE PUNNINESS.  I inked up the sea turtle with Versamark before I did the Soft Suede, and then heat embossed with clear EP so the colors wouldn't run when I watercolored.  Only took a minute but he looks pretty good.  I'm squeaking in just under the wire for the Just Add Ink inspiration challenge:

Pink and green is always a winner in my book, and I had lots of different thoughts go through my brain before the sea turtle won.  I also used the new Pocket Sketch Challenge:

For my card, I moved the ribbon element up to the top strip because there just wasn't room for it the way I stamped the main image.  But this card is flat and easy to mail, so now I just need to decide who to send it to!  Who would enjoy a good maritime pun?

Thanks for checking in today, y'all.  Cheers!
