Busy cardmaking day!

Happy Friday!!
It's a hot one here in Texas. We are supposed to have temps around 100 degrees in the next 7 days, at least.

Since it is so hot and it is almost the first day of summer, it seems only fitting to share a surfing card!

I had a mini lesson on using the brayer this morning from my friend, Barb. I remembered a little bit from a long time ago. What a really need is a Michelle Zindorf class! She is the expert in using a brayer, and does the best work of anyone I have ever seen!

This card is for my husband's birthday next weekend...Shhh!! Hopefully, he won't check out my blog...but, I don't think that he's a frequent visitor!

I used Stickles to make the waves stand out. When I stamped the image (which is Stampin' Up, Extreme Surfer) it didn't look very dark when I stamped it, so I decided to color the surfer in with a black marker. It looked too dark then...ya just can't win! So, I stamped another image and cut the surfer out, used pop dots to raise it up...and there you have it!

For all of the daddies out there, I hope you have a VERY Happy Father's Day! Enjoy your father, and remember to enjoy him and know how blessed you are to have him in your life. Prayers, Love & Hugs to my friend, Judi, whose dad is not doing very well.
