Sketch Saturday #263 and Surfing Oliver Love You Dad Card

Hi all...if you all didn't know already, I made it on to the Sketch Saturday Design Team! This Saturday will be my first joining them and I'm so excited!

Below is the sketch that we're using this week!  {Click on here on on the sketch to go to the direct challenge post.}  Come play along for a chance to win some digis from our sponsor Sassy Studio Designs.

I sadly own every Spellbinders shape except hexagons.  And what's funny is that when I was up in Canada, my friend +Thanh Vo even saw and mentioned them to me while we were at The Clipper Street Garage Sale, lol.  Ah, well...guess I'll know better next time.

But I improvised and decided on circles instead.  I originally had a whole other stamp and idea for this card, but kindof funny how things just all of suddenly change as you're putting it together.  Though it's quite bright and busy, I love how it turned out.

This card, I made for my FIL, as my in-laws vacation every spring down in Mexico.  I hope you all enjoy your Saturday!  I'll be home cleaning, packaging orders, and crafting!


  1. Oh yay! Congrats on the design team. Have fun with it. Giggled when I read you didn't have hexagons...I don't have too many Spellbinders, but I do have hexagons. *Ü* Great card. The circles were a good choice. Great colors and Oliver looks ready to have some fun.
