365 Cards - Day 213 - The 3 B's & blog hop fun!!

Aloooooha and E Komo Mai to another wonderful Wednesday challenge at 365 Cards!! Today's challenge is "The 3 B's - Boy, Black, and Button". I got to use the super adorable "Surfin' Oliver" stamp from Sparkle Creations and boy did I have fun coloring him!! I'm still in a summer mood (actually it's been kinda warm here in Hawaii, so that's easy to do!) so I went all tropical on this one. Did some more sponging of the background as I did on last week's card too! LOVE IT! So here's the inside:
And here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. C.R.A.F.T. - Teenagers
2. Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
3. Let's Ink it Up - use your favorite stamp + a charm: I've had that "surf's up" charm for awhile and so glad to find a great place to use it!
4. One Stitch at a Time - anything goes
5. Paper Playtime - Listen to the Rhythm of the falling rain: well I've got water in the background of the image!
6. pile it on - cute and charming
7. Sunday Sketch and Stamp - sketch
8. The Corrosive Challenge Blog - masking: I masked the image to sponge in the background

Here's an added bonus for today! As you probably know Saturday is World Card Making Day and there is a fabulous blog hop going on at CDAC with some wonderful prizes! And as a new DT member for Delightful Inspiration blog for Designed 2 Delight Digi Stamps I have created a special project for one of the challenges at our CDAC group. I used the Freebie that Faith posted on CDAC on Saturday and made a small box from a template I got from My Time Made Easy (find it here).
I added the "where you're planted" part to the sentiment...it just fit as I made this a box to give packets of seeds!
Super easy and quick to make! Hope you hop on by on Saturday for the blog hop and all the fun at CDAC! See you then!



WOW! I missed that surfing dude when we visited last Christmas! He's a cutey! AND - look at that Beautiful coloring, OMG! Those copics are really paying off, gorgeous!
AND - the seed packet box is so ingenious. What a great RAK for someone who loves to garden - uhm, do you no anyone that enjoys gardening? (I'm thinking Daddy Jim!)
Love the tag for the closure with a touch of Velcro. This cute little box could be used for a gift box – MAYBE FOR CHOCOLATE! You are on a roll – can’t wait to see what you do next!
Have a great day, Love, SAM aka MOM
