Good morning and welcome snarky peeps!
It's time again for the new challenge at the
This fortnight we want to see your water themed projects.
That could be an ocean scene, something to do with bathing, 
beverages of some kind. Lots of possibilities!
I went with an underwater scene for my card:

Here's the inside:

I used Distress Inks for my ocean background, and using a great tip
from Barbara Anders post, I used white acrylic paint and a stencil
for the sun rays. I also did something that I rarely do: use a purchased item
right away, instead of letting it sit on my desk for a month, or more. The 
NBUS items are the shark die and the sentiments. Just look at that
creepy/cute shark! I just had to use it right away!

Now it's your turn to create something watery, and link up at the
We can't wait to see what you come up with. For more ideas, simply visit
