Beach Party!

Hey there,

This week at Tellen's Place, the challenge will take you into summer, so get your swimsuits on, y'all; it's Beach Party time!

I spent 15 years in San Diego, raising my sons, who took to the beach like a duck to water - we always had sand in the car and there were always wet trunks drying on the line. Check out my little piece of water pleasure.

Yes, it's a simple card but so were those days at the beach where we relaxed and just enjoyed the sun and the water. Those waves are contrived using diamond dust on top of Aileen's Tacky Glue. The sand castle, sun and clouds are stickers and the images are from my son, Markus, who supplies our images at the Tellen's Place Designs store. The design team really did another fabulous job with their beautiful paper crafts for this challenge - go check it out - click here.

I hope you join our challenge for the fun of it! Get out your tanning lotion and go for it!

Happy Crafting!

Wow, I can feel the sun on my skin and the sand between my toes. It's nice. Your card is fab. I love all the detail and the waves look so real, I could dive right in. BTW, 'the plank' is when a toddler makes their body go rigid, so you can't put them in a buggy, or highchair, or car seat! Grrrrrrrrrrrr!
