I hope you read that title with a Valley Girl accent, this little doggie is a regular surfer dude and he talks the talk to go along with it. Growing up my brothers used to call each other dude, in a familial mocking way, later we had a dog with that name, she was black but she didn't surf. Then again we never gave her a board, who knows, maybe she could have.
Last week The Cat's Pajamas challenge was to use cork and it's sticking with me and being carried over into this week's challenge and since I have a large sheet of cork you'll probably be seeing a lot of cork.
This week our hostess with the mostess is Joanne and she's issued a color challenge to use turquoise, red and ivory. I threw in a piece of yellow but I don't think anyone will mind. I picked the surfer dog because I thought he'd go with cork and the colors.
By the way, the red in this picture has a brownish orange look but it is a gorgeous shade of red in real life, I wish I had a better understanding of how to work the editing color features.
Here's the deets:
Stamp - The Cat's Pajamas "Fun in the Sun"
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up markers "Real Red" and Tempting Turquoise"
Paper- dp Me and My Big Ideas "Ellen Starfish", cs CTMH ivory for card base and image, SU turquoise, Colorbok yellow, red MFT
Miscellaneous - Heidi Swapp bling, EK Success "Dotted Wave" border punch, Nestibilities "Blossom Two", MFT buttons, SU ribbon, cork, clip Spare Parts, Sulky thread
Here's the Challenges:
the Cat's Pajamas TCPTUES - turquoise, red and ivory
Simon Says - Buttons, Bows and Bling
The Pink Elephant - TPE64 Color Challenge Aqua (I think that's the same as turquoise)
Sketch Saturday - Week 100 the sketch
