Cheeky Beach Summer Card For A Swap

Hello, Friends!  Yes, I'm actually posting for the third time in one week.  I know I was MIA for a while, but I actually needed a break from crafting!  It's been a tedious process, but it's a lot to go through -- probably ten years' worth of stuff!  I've sold and donated a bunch of supplies.   But, I have also BOUGHT some new stuff, too!  

I guess it boiled down to "out with the old, and in with the new" as they say!  It was just time for some of my stuff to move on to a home where they would be put to use or appreciated.  It was also time for me to get some fresh, new stuff and to also look into expanding on what I do creatively.  I like trying new products and techniques, and I like pushing myself to try different things.

Anyway, speaking of trying different things, here is a card I created recently for a swap hosted by Shirl.  I used to participate in tons of swaps.  Once, I was signed up for 22 swaps AT ONE TIME!  Oh, boy, was that a stressful time!  LOL  Well, I decided to sign up for Shirl's swap to force myself to do a summer-themed project.  You would think that I do a lot of these being that I live in Hawaii where summer is pretty much year-round, but no. I don't.

I made this card for my partner using this bright, fun line of beach-themed papers.  Love those surfboards! I stamped a Greeting Farm image from their Cheeky line (love the Cheeky girls!) and colored her with Copics.     I added pink Stickles to her flower.

I also added Glossy Accents to her beach ball.

I also lined the inside of the card.  It's not something I always do, simply because I'm lazy.  LOL

Here is the card with a RAK for my partner.  I gave her a Cheeky Beach stamp of her own.

Well, that's all for now, folks!  Hope you have a great day!  Aloha!
