Happy Wednesday on Tuesday:)

Surfs Up!!!

This is a multi-tasking card:)

TONS of paper piecing on Sparkle Creations Surfing Oliver....He's been pieced with Cosmo Cricket Early Bird...the background is Cosmo Cricket Snorkel. Lots of stitching, some Making Memories alpha stickers and some mystery white twill that I found:)

Yvonne Yam over at Do more with less, has a challenge that ends tonight...hence my Wednesday post on Tuesday:) Her Guest Blogger, Sparkle Smith of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, issued a dream vacation challenge. Well, I was kind of liberal with that challenge...my boy had a BALL Paddle Board surfing in Hawaii last year so I knew that I wanted to use Surfing Oliver. Any beachy place is a dream vacation for us!
I'm also playing along with Sparkle's "anything travel" challenge over on her blog. Who wouldn't enjoy a tropical vacation?


My card is based on the oh-so-fun sketch over on Skipping Stones Design:
Okie Dokie peeps....thanks for stoppin' by!!!

how adorable!!!!
i love the strip of fishy paper down the middle and the little fellow who is brave enough to adventure into the water ((with his charming grin, and little goggles)) is too endearing!!! i also love the little caption, and that the letters are all separate: brilliant.
