I've always loved to swim and as my mother would say ,"You swim like a fish!". Well I haven't done as much swimming in recent years but....that hasn't kept me out of the pool. You see I have recurring dreams in which I'm swimming! It's true...how would you interpret that?! I suppose it means I miss getting in the water...anyway, that was my inspiration for this sketch. Creative factoid: I fashioned the diving board out of a piece of the Grand Madison window die. :)

OMG! So CREATIVE Pol!!! LOVE those beautiful light green waves in the background! She just looks so amazing caught in mid-dive, suspended in the air!!! The way you framed it all is BRILLIANT!!! Perfect sentiment too! Favorite for me!!! So VERY COOL!!!

This makes me laugh, Polly! You must have been in a silly mood when you made this card! Since those waves are ginormous, it looks more like she's diving into the ocean; well it must be since those fish are talking about her! You have quite an imagination, in a good way. Love all your details on this one~
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!

This is awesome. When I saw it I thought about the Olympic Swimmers and how the dream of winning the "Gold". I just love your waves and the diving board and the little fish as embellishments are pure genius!
