Howdy peeps!  Oops, this post was supposed to be for Thursday morning!  Oh well!   Boy, this week is zipping by, isn’t it?  Today was just glorious here in southeastern PA!  I spent a wee bit of time stamping and a lot of time outside!  My nephew’s birthday is coming up and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was just what I needed:
Since he lives along the SC coast, I chose the retired Surfer for his card, stamped on a Sahara Sand panel diecut from the Chalk Talk set of dies.  I matched it up with some Soho Subway papers and a Pistachio Pudding card base:


I added some Gorgeous Grunge “water” and the birthday sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners:


I hope he likes it!

We spent a lot of time in the sand box today!


She was so intent on what she was making, I could hardly get her to look up for a photo!  She had a blast!  Enjoy your day!

  3. Cowabunga! love how this turned out!

  4. I'm back...whew......what a busy but wonderful summer. We're having some great weather still so it feels like summer is hanging on for a bit which I love.
    This card is gorgeous. Such a beautiful mix of papers and this colour combo is great. I love the tag for the main panel.
    That must be some serious work Cassidy is doing there if she wouldn't even look up for the camera;)

  5. What an absolutely fabulous card this is! I love all the "water" you added to the action image - brilliant!

  6. great use of this card and fabulous masculine theme, love it!

  7. Awesome, LeeAnne! Love how you used the ribbon on this and the background paper is...dare I say...gnarly!! :)

  8. This is so super cute! Love the surfer! Too bad he is retired, but you rocked this sketch and I love the design.

  9. Fabulous card. I love the colors and LOVE that knot in the ribbon! Great design as always. :)

  10. That surfer image is great! And I love how you added the "grunge" water - it's perfect! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
