I {heart} manatees!

Here's another thing I love about Hambo Stamps - they have a manatee stamp!! How random is that?? Actually, probably not that terribly random, considering Monica is originally from Florida! But, it's not an animal you see very often. Have you even heard of these gentle sea creatures? Did you know that although they have no natural predators they are endangered, thanks to human beings? Well it's true. Ok I'm done with my public service announcement. On to the card! I played another Dare to Get Dirty challenge from Splitcoast - this time Jen's sketch challenge. I am bad with sketches like this because I rarely get things straight - so please don't look TOO closely! If you insist on looking closely, instead look at my coloring - I'm really happy with how it turned out, that blue underbelly makes me happy. :-) I liked the monochromatic theme on yesterday's card so I did it again for the most part, this time with Bashful Blue. So are you enjoying Hambo week so far? Well... it's going to get even bigger and better as the week goes on... there may be some sort of fun giveaway involved... stay tuned....! ;-)

  1. Hahahahahaha! That sentiment is cracking me up!! Hahahahaha!

    Many Blessings,

  2. GREAT card Libby! I fall into the "gray wrinkled thing" category, so if you need someone to send this to...

    I LOVE how you colored the manatee!

  3. I love manatees too, Libby, and I did not know they were endangered. Your colouring is indeed fantastic on this; you have good reason to be proud.

  4. great coloring!! check out "I'm a Manatee" by John Lithgow for the kids(and you), great rhymes and illustrations!!!

  5. Adorable card Libby!! Great coloring and I love the sentiment - hilarious. We saw some manatees at an aquarium last time we were in FL visiting my parents and my DS#1 just sat and stared at them - he was fascinated.

    I had to come visit you b/c I saw the comment you left on the YKYR blog and I almost died laughing - here's why:


  6. Ok - I thought I had left a comment on here and don't see it so if I end up with 2 you will know why! Love the coloring on that darling manatee. He has been catching me eye for some time now! Great job~

  7. There is nothing better than a card that makes me laugh out loud! Great job!

  8. Oh, boy...I should have this sentiment stamp. What a great card, Libby! I do really like the blue and gray and you did a fantastic job on the coloring. The blue is perfectly blended and the rest of the shading looks wonderful, too. I love it!

  9. this image is so cute! love your card


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
