PP696 Sandy Toes

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Happy last day of June! Wow, how did that happen?!  The Paper Players hostess this week is Anne Marie, and I am filling in for her as she's a little under the weather!  But she did come up with this awesome tic-tac-toe grid, since it's the fifth Sunday of the month:

First, I have a confession to make....I have TOO many stamps!  Seriously! The stamp set I used on this card I have probably had for three or four years and NEVER INKED IT UP!  But I remedied that this week, so here we go:


I am sure that I was inspired by something my friend Michele made with this set and had to have it...and then it just sat! So anyway, I inked up this little boy, watercolored him in and paper-pieced his little boogie board and put him on a piece of Azure Afternoon striped DSP.  The edge of the DSP was diecut with a Penny Black die, and I added a sentiment from the same set; it's from Waffle Flower called Sandy Toes!  I only wish they had both the left and right flipflop stamps....it looks like this little guy has two left feet!



The tic-tac-toe row that I chose was across the top of stars and/or stripes, bling and blue.  Now you're going to have to trust me on the bling, because the only thing I could think of to bling up my card was some Wink of Stella on the sand....I know you can't see it here, but it is very sparkly in real life!


My final addition was some retired Wavy Trim.  The sketch I used is from FMS:

Such a fun sketch!  I added a sentiment from the Light the Candles kit---this set of sentiments is awesome!


I hope you'll have some fun with our Tic-Tac-Toe grid this week!  Share it with us over at the Paper Players blog and check out what the other designers came up with as well!  Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Very cute LeAnne. Maybe do mirror imaging with the stamp to get a right flip flop?

LeAnne, I just LOVE this fun card!!!! I love this azure color and that little guy with his sandy toes is so FUN! The sentiment made me smile and those flying flip flops are perfect. The twine across the card adds so much texture! JUST PERFECT, My Friend!

There's so much to love about this card! From his two left feet (!) to his polka-dotted boogie board - so fun!

Very cute! The rustic weave twine is a great choice for the beach vibe you have here. Plus, who wouldn't love a polka-dotted surfboard! :-)

That sentiment is just fab LeAnne and pairs perfectly with that image. I'm loving the nautical blue and white and the trim works perfectly too - what a great card for a summertime birthday!
