Tuesday Throwdown #157: Toes in the Sand

Good Morning, my friends! And here we are  at another round of Tuesday Throwdown fun. This week we're continuing with the summer theme....after all it is scorching hot in the northern hemisphere. What better way than to cool off at the beach.

Our theme this week: "Toes in the Sand" and we have "Sweet n' Sassy Stamps" playing along with us by generously providing the DT some utterly cute digis. For my card project, I'm using a cheeky little digi called "Cocoa and the Beach Ball". You really ought to check out the Sweet n' Sassy On-line Store where the Summer Sale is in full swing.

Enough banter, let's head on down to the beach and meet my card:

The papers for this card are from Fancy Pants "Beach Babe" 6x6 pad. For cutting and matting I used Spellbinders Ovals and Lacy Ovals dies. Few embellies made it to the card: red gingham ribbon and some yellow bling.

Here's a close-up of Cocoa and his Beach Ball. I coloured him with SN markers

On the inside is the greeting from Chocolate Baroque's Birthday Words set, stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle.

This is such a fun challenge, I hope you'll join in the Tuesday Throwdown beach party. As always, create a new project for this challenge and link it up over at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog. And if you need some inspiration to get you started, take a closer look at what the rest of the DT has on offer. So what are you waiting for, my friends. let's play!

I'm taking my chard to these linky parties:

  16. Hi Asha...just read your posts on the Pow Wow and the lodge.
    If you ever plan a trip tot he west coast and interior of BC Canada, be sure to let me know.

    There are so many ways to have a fabulous trip here and do it for a fairly good price. I think the Lodge had really good golf and play packages. When our cousins come over from England, they will probably stay a few days at the lake with us in the bargoon rooms we are able to access for our friends and family...but I am sure we will grab a couple of those golf stay and play packages as the ladies can get a spa whole the guys golf!

    I have lived in many areas of our province and visited many others. I would be delighted to show you around!
