Is It High Tide?



Why are clams happy? It all has to do with high tide when clams are free from predators' attention (found that little nugget here). Interesting, huh? My good friend, Karen, and I have been saying "happy as a clam at high tide" for a wicked long time, so when this sentiment from A Muse showed up in my mailbox, I was all smiles.

Ready for another smile? Check out the inside of this card...



I made a spiffy little pop up, a la Robert Sabuda. These cute little clams fit perfectly on the heart, so the happiness kept on coming while I was making this card.

Here is one more close-up of the pop-up:



More amuse-bouche from the high seas today, just take a look around the other A Muse CT blogs!
