Kimmie"s Theme Challenge and Beate's Sketch Challenge



I know that I have been doing a lot of fall cards lately, then I realized what am I crazy, I live in South Florida, which means tropical weather and ducking hurricanes, it is 90 degrees outside, so when I saw Kimmie's Theme Challenge I knew exactly what needed to be done, then I came across Beate's and there was my sketch. I turned the sketch on the side, hope you don't mind Beate. I know the duck is wearing sunglasses but you will also need to don a pair yourself, warning this card is bright. The stamp is from MissyB, I have so fallen in love with her designs, the starfish is an SU stamp and the sentiment and umbrella are those great acrylic $ stamps from Michael's, the paper well you know my problem with that, too much paper can't keep track of it.

What a gorgeous card - so cool! I love the way you put the umbrella in too - I thought it was part of the original stamp until I read your write up!

I know what you mean about winter - I've been making more Christmas cards tonight - I don't like doing them so early but if I don't I'll not get them all made!!
