Cowabunga, Dude - I found some inspiration!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their weekends!! Today was a big day for my youngest DS - he's 4 - and he had his very first soccer game this morning!! He did awesome - a little hesitant at first - but by the end of the game he had gotten some good kicks in. It's a fun age I think - they aren't into the competitiveness of it yet and they're just having fun - plus they're all just too cute to boot too!! :) I did do some stamping when we got home - participated in my very first Inspiration Challenge in SCS. I was perusing the Creative Wall Coverings site that is today's inspiration and came across this wallpaper border...
...and I knew exactly what I wanted to do!! I didn't have any images of dogs surfing - but I do have images of turtles surfing - so I went with that. The set I used is OCL's Hangin' Loose with Kona (an Eclectic Paperie exclusive set) - the sentiment is from this set as well. I've had this set forever and I need kicked in the behind for not inkin' it up yet because it's just too darn cute. I think I made up for it though by using every turtle in the set to create this scene - hee hee...the matching wall paper that goes with this border on the inspiration site was striped - so I drew inspiration from that too by adding some striped paper behind my image panel. I colored the image with Copics and sponged my sky on like I did on my card yesterday. I added a few flower brads for accents and even got to play with my new Nesties too - the inverted scallop circle set. Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

I love yesterday and today's cards both. Actually, I don't think I've seen a card you make that I don't like. It's good to see you back.
