German Phrase of the Day: Jeder liebt das Surfen surft USA. = Everybody loves Surfin'...Surfin USA! Have you every SEEN such a cute penquin surfing?? I LOVE the big wave. I am a huge fan of the ocean, and have already declared to my husband that I plan on spending a week at a beach house somewhere EVERY year, because the ocean and the waves are just so calming to me. I've also promised myself that I will take Julia over the hills to visit the ocean as often as I can once we're back in California because, we need to appreciate it while we have it, right??
So, Snowflake got to make snow angels, and now he's surfing! What will this penguin do next??? I was so excited when I first saw this set, and just new it would be tons of fun to color (it is!) I love using these nice bright colors too. Perfect for a late summer day! And did you see the sentiment? Having lived almost half my life in California, I can actually say that correctly! ;-) Although in all honesty, this card reminds me more of Hawaii then California. I had some cool swirly chipboard that I saved out from packing, and finally got a chance to use it here. I covered it with Taken with Teal craft ink (I think that might be my new favorite SU! color) and then embossed it twice with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. Doesn't it look like some swirly waves?? Rad, dude!
Other details...it's mostly self explanatory. I of course colored him with my prismacolor pencils, and for the greeting, I punched it with my word window punch, then added 2 more punched pieces behind to give it more color. I attached them all together with a black brad.
