Tranquility with Beach Bums!


I'm sure that everybody must be so happy that the weekend is here.
I know that I'm certainly enjoying my cup of coffee while I browse through the blogs!

It has been such a pleasure to be a featured guest over at Freshly Brewed Challenges!  Heather, the very talented designer and owner of Fresh Brewed Designs has been so very sweet and thoughtful!
Please don't forget to sign up for my Blog Candy!  Last time I counted there were only 5 people signed up!  You want to make sure that your name gets entered into the drawing!  The stamp is BEACH BUMS!  I used the stamp to make this card!
The current challenge at Freshly Brewed Challenges is
THREE'S! Three of anything!
You should hop on over there to check it out and join in on the challenge!
Hmm, How does this card qualify?
I used three stamps and I added three beach themed beads to my stick pin!

I made this card with the Fresh Brewed Designs
"Peace Be Still"digi stamp and the "Beach Bums"rubber stamp!
Don't forget that I have a brand new "Beach Bums" blog candy rubber stamp for one lucky winner!

I used SU Peach Parfait and Wisteria Wonder cardstock.
I also used cork and scrap designer paper.
I colored both images with my copic markers and added some crystal effects and glitter to the sand.
Then I cut the, "Peace Be Still" image into four pieces before adhearing them onto the cork to hopefully make it look like a big window.
I wanted my little "Beach Bums" girl to be looking out her window as she holds a refresing cocktail in her hand.  I used some scrap ribbon to make a window valance.
The big bow is SU Peach Parfait
The sandels are from Jolee's Boutique.
