Summer lovin'...

Hi-dee ho neighboreenos!

I'm running behind this morning... seems like this happens quite a bit towards the end of each month as deadlines start nearing, but there just isn't much I can do about that. So I'll be keeping today's post short and sweet. :)

When I saw the Farm Fresh Friday challenge was summer lovin' over at TGF it finally gave me the chance to ink up this new cutie, Surfer Anya. And at first I was just going to use her as-is but then I spotted Surfer Ian and I suddenly saw them riding the waves together. So I did a bit of altering, wiping away part of the board she was carrying and drew in a new arm for her. Then I also stamped up an extra Ian board that I wiped his feet off of, and finished off the missing lines with my trusty Copic multiliner pens. I cut them all out and glued Anya onto her new board... voila! Now she's actually out there on the water right along side her honey... awwwww! ;)
Considering I had two stamped images for one card I kept the embellishing to a minimum, but with this great beachy paper from Fancy Pants I really didn't need much else. Those fish in the print totally crack me up!
