Surf’s up!

It’s Summer Fun at AiFactory Challenges this week.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday June 22nd to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

I’ve used an image from Surf’s Up Ready For Swim Dudes to create this side step card.I thought this style would be ideal for the shape of this little guy plus it meant I could add lots of waves using one of my fave punches.I also added some acrylic dew drops.Just love using these on water  themed cards and I have a ton as I bought the ones they sell as table decorations rather than the more expensive ones for crafters.The sentiment looks a little fuzzy here but I think the camera homed in on the image rather than the whole card.I’m going to save this card for my DS1’s Birthday in December!Apart from not knowing too many surfing phrases this will be pretty apt as he will be 10!
