A Day at the Beach

Hellooooo and Happy Friday to you all! Isn't it strange how we can have a short work week and yet, it still feels like the longest week? At least that's how it's felt for me...but hooray, it's Friday again!

I really like to try new things with my cards. So, for today's card I used acetate paper. Acetate is really hard to photograph though! :) I hope you enjoy this little "risk" I took and maybe a day at the beach is in your future...or whatever you like to do to kick back. Thanks for stopping by and have a Fabulous weekend!

Oh, AND The Greeting Farm releases it's new stamps on Monday!! Yipee! Check out Marie's blog for sneaks. Set your clocks for bright and early Monday morning and we'll see ya there!

The Greeting Farm, Surfer Ian
Paper: Acetate Paper, Basic Grey Lime Rickey and other assorted BG solids, TGF Sunny Glen

Holy Cowabunga! This is just absolutely the best. I love it when you try new things, because it is always something amazing. Those "rocks" are perfect and talk about a perfect sunset. It doesn't get any better than this card.

What a great card! I thought the outside was pretty but as a stamp lover the inside was perfect! Love the waves!!

Just discoverd your blog and I have to say that I like your clean and simple style with just enough nice details so you don't get distracted.
