Surfin' USA!

Mornin' friends!

Are you ready for another Tickled Pink March preview?
There are six new images by Christina Dee and one set of sentiments by Ann being released on the 13th in the TP store. Today we are hitting the beach and surfing some righteous waves with Stefan! Now I've never been surfing or hung around with surfers but I do have a surfing character in my Sims 3 game, named Dude, that I play from time to time so I based chill li'l Stefan after him. LOL!

As soon as I spotted Stefan I knew that I had the perfect papers buried somewhere in my stash so the search was on. It took a bit longer than I thought it would because I hadn't put it back with the rest of my Crate paper after the last time I used it but I wasn't giving up on this paper! Just look at that old Woody Wagon and the palm tree... it was just made to set the scene for Stefan, don'tcha think?

And as always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink preview without a prize... so if you want a chance to win Stefan in RUBBER, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Tickled Pink blog. It's as easy as that! While you are there be sure to check out what the rest of the Pink Ladies have created too... you'll be longing for warm sunshine and sandy beaches! ;)

Woo hoo!!! Surfer Stephan looks like a couple of the surfers in Surfer Magazine!! Great colors and that paper ROCKS! Glad you were able to find it and share. He's a cool dude with his long locks and awesome longboard. Another fabulous card Amy! Yay!!! Hugs

You know - these new images are just perfect for teenage boys as they are so different from nerdy to goth. Hope there is going to be a sporty type.
Love your card as always and your fabulous colouring.
Hugs, Mette

He is soooo totally cool! I think he's my favorite. Of course it could be that living in Florida has made me partial to the "surfer dudes", lol.

HI Amy, I love your Stefan. He is rightous! heehee...Love, love the paper with him. You are so right it totally looks like it was made just for him. Years ago when we went to SanFran with my SIL we walked the beach and she asked this surfer guy if she could have her picture taken with a real life surfer. She was a very fun SIL. I just loved her spirit. Have a great day. We are rainy here, but I am hoping we'll see some sun soon. Hugs, Lisa

Love how 'beachy' this is!!! (Definitely brightening up all this snowy mess!)

Love the blanket stitching you added - it really adds to the 'hippy-beach-bum' feel! (Makes me think of campfires on the beach...)
