Is this little guy not the cutest? The Awesome Sea Otter Stamp Set is just adorable and paired with the Gentle Waves background stamp for a wave effect makes for a fun card. I also added some bark with the 3D Bark Embossing Folder. Pool Party and Crumb Cake Cardstock and ink pair together well and give me the feel of a beach, which sounds awesome right now! It seems to be about 30 below in Iowa and bonus it is going to be colder in the morning! I can hardly wait! If only I could stamp the day away and not leave my house! A girl can dream right! This cute Awesome Sea Otter is one of the FREE sets that you can choose from with a $50 order through the end of February. Sale-a-bration is a fun time of the year where you get to pick FREE exclusive items with every $50 or $100 order!
