I used a cute little image from Dude Time Doodles called
Ollie Octopi   His little eyes just crack me up!  
I created little suction cups on the underside of his body (oops - hope the illustrator doesn't mind!)  and make a background of water with bubbles.   

 One cannot have too many hugs in my opinion!  

I am linking this card with the following challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door White with two other colors
Make It Monday -  Anything goes
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything goes

Aww Moment for the Day - 
as if little Ollie isn't enough! :D

Thank you for joining me and I hope to see you at Through The Craftroom Door

  2. I can't believe YOU added the suction cups..I thought it was there all along...that's completely IMPRESSIVE!! They look so realistic and I certainly can't see why the illustrator would mind, it's brilliant. The water bubbles are sensational and the overall card just makes me want to give out hugs!!! So, I'll start with you :)
    BIG HUGS to you my friend and thank you SOOO much for continuing to share your copic mad skills with everyone at Make It Monday.
