Have a swell day...


Good morning!

The 20th anniversary celebration sale continues on at Purple Onion Designs, with just a week left to take advantage of 25% OFF nearly the entire store. No code is necessary, all you have to do is fill up your cart and the discount will apply automatically at check out. Michele, the owner of Purple Onion, is also doing a fundraiser for the Maui Wildfires with a special stamp bundle that consists of 13 stamps for $20. The bundle is discounted over 50% and the entire purchase price will be donated to the Global Empowerment Mission for each set purchased.


For my card today, I have made a tall slimline full of surfing critters from the newest Charmed by the Sea collection. Kai, Kalei and Splash are all hitting the waves with varying degrees of success. That top wave is the Rip Curl stamp and I simply colored it into the larger body of water that fills most of the scene. The surf board that little Splash has fallen off of is part of the Beach Accessories set and I simply wiped the ink way from the bottom of the image so it would appear to be partially beneath the water. Down at the bottom of the card I've used the Ocean Shoreline stamp to create the sandy beach. It sure looks like they are having a great time, doesn't it?!  :)

Have a great week my friends!
