Hey Chick!

This week over in the Hanna Stamps forum at SCS Jocelyn has a fun sand related challenge for you. You can use anything using sand, sandpaper, a sandy/beachy image, sand colored etc on your card or paper project.

My card is a little different than my usual style and not much colouring apart from the flip flops. Even though my main image is a surf board I wanted my card to have a girlie surf chick feel. I have used some of the accessory stamps from the newly release Hanna Stamps set "To the beach". This set is just bursting with so many stamps! You can see my earlier card here using the main images from this set. My sand is coarse sandpaper and my sentiment is computer generated.

There are some great samples from the DT for your inspiration which can be viewed hear in the SCS gallery.

Wow, as if the wonderful Joy didn't spoil me enough yesterday! She has given me another fabbie award. Thank you so much Joy!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and I am leaving you with a new Bella photo which was taken yesterday. Danni tucked her up in her blankie ready for bed!

Hugs,
