365 Cards - Day 205 - Summer Vacation Masculine Style

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards! Our sponsor this week is Tradefish Designs and I got to use part of the set from "Pass the Sunblock". I went with no embellishments but used a lot of texture with sandpaper for the sand (how appropriate is that?!?) and corkpaper for the sandcastle. The palm tree is paper pieced with a woodgrain paper and just a little fun polka dot paper for the leaves. The background paper is Bo Bunny and the cloud dies are Taylored Expressions. Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Anything Goes Challenge Blog - anything goes
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - create a scene
3. Craft Us Crazy - goodbye to summer/school theme
4. Crafty Sentiments - Happy Birthday
5. CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS - let's celebrate
6. Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
7. I Did it Creations Challenge - beach
8. Scrap-Creations - anything goes
9. Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday - birthday

Thanks for stopping by and hope you get a chance to play along!



Looks like I'm the early bird this morning! This card is really, really getting me in the mood for our trip to visit you! Can't wait! Save this one for Daddy Jim even if it is a summer vacation card it will be his winter vacation cad! G'Nite to you in Hawaii time!

Wow Kim,

Not only is your card SO FUN, but I don't fathom how you guys manage to tie your cards to so many more challenges and I'm envious! LOL, I am only able to focus on one challenge at a time - hopefully I do that well.

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and your encouragment, it means a lot.
