Cowabunga


I made today's card for two CAS challenges.
I used the sketch from the CAS challenge over on Split Coast  - 
 
I thought the surfboards fit the 'teenager' bill!  I dry embossed the Nestability banner along the top, stamped the sentiment inside the banner and then simply stamped the standing surfboards under it.

And since there's still time to enter:  I'm also linking this to the WMS blog party - theme - Summertime Fun!

And in case you were wondering (like me!) where the word 'cowabunga' came from - I googled it and found this:  

"Cowabunga!" - most recently immortalized by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - was the greeting used between Buffalo Bob Smith and Chief Thunderthud on the Howdy Doody Show during the 1950's. Later, the term became widely used in the Gidget surfer movies, and also in the Peanuts cartoon strip."

My stamps are from two great boy sets -  Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments by Waltzingmouse

Oh- and just a head's up -  Claire will be releasing 6 new WMS sets on June 30th with sneak peeks starting on June 27th - watch for them right here!



Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy, Free Spirit Sentiments
Paper: white - PTI
Ink: Ranger Distress - Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Ripe Persimmon
Accessories: Lacey Pennant Nestabilitis
