Thanks a ton

Every month my friend Gundi from papierelle gives out a prize to one of the commenters of her most visited post of the previous month. Isn't that a great idea? I was the lucky winner of the prize for the month of August. So, a few weeks ago I got this in the mail:

Two cute Christmas stamps and a Christmas embossing folder! Just the right thing to put me in a Christmas mood! The dragonflies on the card are really sparkly. It was all packaged with love in that sweet little bag she made.

This deserved a "ton" of thanks so I got out a NBUS set from Clearly Besotted and made her this card:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted (whale, sentiment)
Dies: Memory Box (waves), Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps (clouds), SSS (frame)

The waves are cut out from a photocopied picture of lake water, a leftover from one of the calendars I always make for my family (told you I keep every snippet)! The whale is stamped on glossy paper and fussy cut.

Since the whale wears a big smile I thought I would enter here too, focusing on the word "smile" and bring a touch of blue into the see of autumn colored entries... ;)
