A Simple Surfer

I am sending a card today to a very special young man. So I used the boy surfer (that goes with the girl surfer from a few days ago) and followed this weeks Color Challenge on SCS. Have you ever done this??? After I put the card together and photographed it this morning, I looked at it and......DOH!.....I must have had blue ink on my finger from edging the layers so the card has a couple of blue fingerprints on it!! Oh well...I guess I will just say it is "sea spray"!

I did this card pretty quickly; it is very early, and I have a busy day at work. I am also going to a Stampin Up class tonight on the Bargello technique (fun!!). Maybe I will learn to do something other than colored pencils!! hahaha!

I am about a month into my Chemo Card Angel sharing, and it is really very fulfilling. I send out a couple of cards a week, as well as a small package. It is such a small gesture, and hopefully brings a little bit of brightness to someone's day!

Have a good day!

stamps: Penny Black

technique: ye old standby: colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits
