A Sketchy Day at the Beach

Here's my card for today's sketch challenge over at Split Coast.I made mine a summer fun card with this cute beach chair and umbrella, beach fence and shell stamps all from Rubbernecker . I paper pieced the umbrella and chair, popping the umbrella up on foam dimensionals. Just for fun, I added a little pearl to the clam shell stamping!

Inside I stamped the small sand dune twice, another shell and this sentiment on a white panel.

Exciting news: This weekend I'm going to be helping Dave (owner of Rubbernecker) run his booth at the Heirloom's West Springfield, MA Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival!! Whoo hoo!! If you are in the area come on over and visit me at the Rubbernecker booth! I'd LOVE to meet you! It's sure to be a fun time - there are over 40 companies with booths and they are also running fun 'make and takes'!! Check out the program here.

Also - did you notice the little cat on my side bar??? I've been invited to be on Marks Finest Papers Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge DT for June, July and August!!! They have a fun challenge every Saturday and if you link your card to the challenge blog you could win a free MFP Stamp set every week!! So please check back here on Saturday!!

How funny that you use this set today! I ordered the grass and tree set to use with some of my outdoorsy images yesterday! The beach set kept calling my name but I resisted. Then here you come along with a fabulous card made with that set!!
Have fun at the show and congrats on the DT stint!
