Surf's Up Dude!



I know we have a long way until Summer gets here, but I just had to use this Whipper Snapper Designs stamp. The stamp is The Big Kahuna. My nephew, Jordan is 12 years old today and I had to make a card to give him for his party tomorrow. He lives right across the street from the beach, and he loves to surf; so this seemed a perfect fit.

I was so excited to play with my copic markers today that I started coloring before I chose my paper. So after wasting precious nap time (i.e. Mommy time) looking for paper to match what I had already colored, I came up with nothing. Can you believe it? Nothing! I had adorable paper with orange and brown that would have been perfect, but I had no time to recolor. So frustrating. (That's why you pick you paper first and color to match the paper). Besides, I really thought he was cute and didn't want to redo it. Anyway, I went with no designer paper at all and opted to put my Cuttlebug to use. I think it worked out fine. The card design is a little boring, but I love the coloring job I did!

Thanks for stopping by!
