One Last Summer Vacation

I hope you're enjoying or will try to fit in one more vacation/staycation before school begins! We just got back from a week at the Washington beach, and it was SO relaxing!

We didn't find any surfers of the shore in Washington, but this Whisper Friend surfer will work great as a stand in for our vacation photos. {wink}

Pink Your Life artist, Nicoletta Zanella (youtube), created beach theme stamps for the Stampendous April 2017 Catalog that are SO adorable! I picked out this Whisper Friend Surfer to go in my design team box a while back and this card made it into the catalog!

If you want to create this card idea scroll to the bottom of the post for supplies and instructions, or you can stop off at the Stampendous website and print out a project page!

  1. Great colors. We live fairly close to the beach and our oldest son did a lot of surfing. Those were some great days. Soon our beaches will be empty with school starting soon. Love your card. [Bunny]

  2. What a cute, cute scene. Your coloring is wonderful. Love your perfect summer idea.

  3. Darling card.
    I'm afraid of the water so
    I'd never try this. Glad
