Surf's Up!

I wish, huh? It's sooooo time for a beach trip! I'll just have to settle for beach-y stamps. At least the laundry won't get backed up! :)

Anyway, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things - it's so nice to abdicate that grown-up role for a little while - and get some crafting in. Found some great challenges and came up with this:

It's a side-step card - my first-ever! Found great directions at .

Some Odd Girl - Spots, Stripes and a Big Title
Charisma Cardz - Anything But Square
Crafty Sentiments - Use Three Designer Papers
Alphabet Challenge Blog - M is for Men
Color Throwdown - Use these colors:

Papers - Little Yellow Bicycle
Stamps - Surfer Kody from Some Odd Girl Digital Stamps, Other surfboards are CHF, Font is LD Jumpy   from Lettering Delights.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment; I learn a lot from them! Stay cool...
