Huge Thanks masculine card

Hi everyone,

How are you all today?It's been a nice morning here, with lots of sunshine, although it has been rather windy...

Apparently we're set to get the tail-end of hurricane Katia this evening/tomorrow morning; a 'severe weather warning' has been issued. But it's meant to be more a sort of tropical storm by the time it gets to us in the UK, so hopefully it won't be too bad. But it's probably going to mean a lot of rain, so I thought the following card was sort of apt:

(Did you get it, with the whale and all...?!)

I'm entering this card into the current 'CAS-ual Fridays' challenge; I thought it'd fit in, with those lovely autumnal colours.

When I first saw this patterned paper (miscellaneous; I got it absolutely ages ago!), I loved it but had no idea what to do with it! But when I saw this stamp set from Paper Smooches, I just grinned at the perfect fit :)

I was going for a more masculine look with this one, although the 'thanks' is nice and pretty; I paired the 'Huge' from Surf and Turf, and the 'Thanks' from Pretty Phrases - I love how all Paper Smooches stamps work so well together!

Hope you like it! I'll try and be back a bit sooner with the next one!

Keep safe :)



  1. Adorable!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. I love how you mixed and matched the stamp sets to create your sentiment - perfectly punny sentiment for this image!! I love Paper Smooches images, too . . . they're some of my faves! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!!

  3. I completely missed this card! I love the vintage maritime look to it and yes, the whale fits!
    Great sentiment for it. :-)
