"Try It Different" Tuesday: Whale, Hello!

Whale, hello there, Inky friends! Yeah, I just said that. You know me, always so punny. ;-) But I can't help myself, especially with today's cards, which are a ton of fun.
 
Our friend and talented Inky designer Michelle Pearson created a bunch of wonderful cards using 11218MC Whale HoneyPOP Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung):
 
 
Look at this cute fella on the outside:
 
 
When you open the card, you'll sea the fun HoneyPOP surprises inside:
 
 
Yep, there's a honeycomb spout and waves! Here's a different version, which I think is whale-y cute:
 
 
The card inside is about the same, except Michelle added Candi Dots in the upper left:
 
 
Of course, you already know that HoneyPOP stamp sets make terrific "regular" cards, too. The torn paper accents on this one look like foam on the water:
 
 
With this stamp set, you can choose to add the groovy swirly patterns to the whale...or not, as you wish. All of today's cards contain the pattern:
 
 
How many silly whale puns did you find in my post? And which card did you like best? Please leave me a comment, which will also be your entry for a BLOG CANDY giveaway.
 
This Saturday, March 15th, I'll randomly choose the winner for 11218MC Whale HoneyPOP Clear Set and coordinating honeycomb paper. I'll post the lucky person's name here on the blog, so please check back to see if you've won!

How many Whale puns? Two written in the post and on the cards 6, I think but not 6 different ones! :)

I loved them all ...not sure I can choose. They are just too cute and the honeycomb is a super fun element to the cards! If I had to choose I think I like the last one just a tiny bit more but they are all super cute!

The water spraying from the top of the head made me smile. But my favorite card is the one with the beautiful waves, and stitching! This set would be perfect for Sunshine Mail! http://www.sunshinemail.org/
