At the Beach

I've gotten quite tired of winter this year. Who am I kidding, I get tired of winter EVERY year. That being said, I do like snow... when it first comes, the first three times it comes. But I don't want it to hang around and get dirty, nor do I want it to snow again and again and again.

But I digress.

I created this beach-themed card for Sam's I Love the Beach card swap on splitcoaststampers. I used my favorite - well one of my favorite - Stampin' UP! stamp sets to make the surfboards. It's the Pick a Petal stamp set. And I used the Stampin' UP! oval punch to create the clever umbrella. Too fun!

I just wish that Stampin' UP! made/sold a punch that would punch out those petals in their Pick a Petal stamp set. So if any of you reading this have connections at Stampin' UP!, would you please suggest that. It sure would make my life easier.

Until then... I'll see you at the beach!

Oh my goodness! This is SUPERB! What a great idea to cut everything out! I love it!!! Are you sure you can't sneak one of these into the sisterhood "vacation" cards?? :) Hugs
