TCCCB0604 - Beach bum

This card was made for the Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog Wednesday challenge. Our theme this week is masculine. Come on over and join in on the fun.

For those of you who know me, know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach, palm trees, the ocean, the sand, and sea life. I love to snorkel, swim, body surf, knee board, etc. Yes, I love all these things and sometimes wonder why I live in the desert. I love that, too surprisingly. But when I can, I hit the ocean, travel to beach locations and take advantage of any beach time I can get. This image is just so cute. I found this stamp at Archiver's in Des Moines, IA over the Christmas holidays. I'm sure going to miss that store. I knew it just had to be mine. I tried to make this card to mimic a beach scene. I will be sending this to my friend in California or if it works out, I'll give it to him when I go see him later in the summer. I have to get in that much needed beach time!!!!!

The sponsor this week is Bugaboo and the image is guy-surf
