Swimming by to say Hi -- for Crafty Sentiments Designs

There are new releases today at Crafty Sentiments Designs. I always get excited for new releases!  The images are so much fun to work with.  I'm never sure what I'll get, but they are always a delight!  Today is no exception!

Meet Josh - Underwater...

How's that for fun?  Doesn't Josh - Underwater look like he's having a great time?  I love that happy expression on his face!  He was so much FUN to color, with that mask on (good practice for 'opaque').  

The fun porthole card shape is a cutting file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I thought it was a great fit for my "Josh-Underwater" rubber stamp.  The sentiment is from Joy's Life. The new releases started yesterday on the Crafty Sentiments Inspirations blog. There is another new release today, plus new releases the next few days, so check the Crafty Sentiments Inspiration blog to see them all, plus the wonderful creations with them from the design team. All the new release rubber stamps will be available for purchase on August 23. 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges::
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Challenge -- Under the Sea
TTCRD -- ATG (1 of 2)
Sister Act Card Challenge -- ATG
D.L. Art -- July Linky Challenge
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG
