Octopus Card

Good morning!   I hope everyone  had a  great day yesterday.  I was planning on having a stay at  home day to  do  a bunch of  things around the house but then last minute one of my sisters  called to see if we wanted to go to Bay Beach(an amusement park).  So off we were.  It was a great day.   It was warm but cloudy with a little breeze.  Could not have asked for a better day.  We did not get home until quite late so I did not post  one of my handmade cards . I wanted to get right on top of that today so I am getting it done first thing.   Usually my cards are 5 ½ by 4 ¼.  As I have been blog hopping I see that there are many different sized cards  and ideas out there so I thought I would try a different sized card myself.  So today’s card is 5x 5.  It was pretty fun.  I had a little more room to work with.  Like I said before my favorite stamps are animals of any sort so I dug out a stamp from the set called Fishy Friends by Stampin Up.  My colors are Real Red and Brilliant Blue.  I stamped the octopus all over the background in Real Red.  I then stamped the  big red octopus and layered it with the red and blue paper.  The colored squares are really cool.  I bought a Square Stax that is what they are called.  It is a stack  about 5 inches high with different colored squares with different edges on too.  Pretty neat.  The you make me smile stamp is from the set Simple Saying from Stampin Up also.  I then added some little red jewels on the top and bottom .  Would love any feedback.   Have a great day!
