Lots of sunshine...

Hello, hello! 

Have you seen the newest Mama Elephant stamps to arrive at 7 Kids? They are SO cute! I just got my hands on a couple of the new summer sets and I couldn't wait to get these cute Beach Chickies on a card. Because they are on the smaller side I wanted to change things up a bit and instead of coloring in an entire card front I cut a skinny strip and contained my beachy scene within it so it reads as more of a snapshot. This left me some room to play with a stenciled background as well. Rather than color them up as traditional chicks I thought it made more sense to have a bunch of seagulls playing at the beach so out came my grey markers. From the looks of these pudgy little seagulls they certainly don't miss many opportunities to steal a french fry or two, LOL! All in all this turned into quite the happy little card. ;)

Laters!
