Seaside Fishing

     I'm lazing at the beach this week, avoiding the continuing heat at home, and probably watching pelicans just like this one!  It's our new challenge today at QKR Stampede and we have our usual "Anything Goes" theme with the optional twist of "By the Seaside."  How appropriate considering where I am.  :-D

     My card this week uses the QKR image called "Happy Pelican" and this isn't the first time I've used it.  It's just so fun and funny and perfect for any summertime card.

     I colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then die cut the image and the frame with pinpoint rectangle dies from Memory Box.  The dp is a scrap and I distressed the edges of it with scissors before adding it to the light-blue background.  I also distressed all the edges of the background cardstock.  I wrapped it with sheer, turquoise ribbon before layering it onto the card front, then applied the hand cut sentiment.  Simple, masculine, and fun.

     I hope you're enjoying yourself as much as I am and, for those friends of mine wasting away in the glare of that southwest sun, get inside and craft, you idiots!  What are you doing venturing out in that heat?  What do you think you are, a mad dog or perhaps an Englishman?  lol  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
