Surfing Time...

My stamps finally arrived from TGF in the US of A (won't tell you how much but it was ALOT!) but it was well worth it. I haven't really got many 'male themed' stamps so this Surfer Ian is a great little addition to my growing stamp collection!

I gave the cards a rest last night and concentrated on my 'gifts' as well as organising myself for Sunday so I made another calendar. I thought I'd enter this calendar in to this week's promarker challenge which is emerald and marine and 'anything but a card'...

Cutie pie 'Ian' surfing on the blue swirly waves in his 'emerald' and 'marine' coloured shorts and on his board too...

Swirly, glittery waves...

Ribbon, paper, glitter...

Surfer Ian from The Greeting Farm range coloured in with Promarkers - Marine, Emerald, Sky Blue, Ivory, Blush, Vanilla
Azure Smooch Accent Ink
I thought I'd enter this calendar in to the promarker challenge which is emerald and marine and 'anything but a card'

I won't post a picture of them as it's probably a bit sad (!) but I've sorted my cards into specific themes and borrowed my Mum's laminator and laminated little dividers with the various themes noted on them to put in the baskets with the cards! I had bought some little paper candy striped paper bags which I've stamped with my blog address so I'll hopefully get a few more visitors. I also decorated the larger white paper bags I have (for my gifts) with a little embellishment (square bit of coloured card punched with a star punch and then stamped my blog address on it - voila!) Getting quite excited/nervous now! But I am really looking forward to going to 'Ally Pally' as I saw on a website earlier!!! I get paid on Friday, just in time to stock up on all the lovely things at the Stamp and Scrapbooking Show on Saturday (major YAY!)

Happy Thursday chums...
