If you play in challenges or make the rounds of card blogs it's very likely that you've run into Jen Scull. Maybe you follow her blog Just Coffee Please...and Stamps & Ribbon & Paper. I've been lucky to be on a few design teams with Jen, she's a rip and damn fine stamper too. Well Jen didn't mention to me that she is the hostess of one the Hope That You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoast Stampers. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find this out when I was looking at what I thought was a totally adorable card. In all the time I've known Jen I never knew her Splitcoast persona so I didn't even realize it was her post until I looked closely at that card and saw her name there.
Jen is hosting HYCCT1215A "A Peaceful Pink". You really should pop over to Splitcoast to see her sample, it's definitely worth a trip. While you're there you may decide to play along.
For me the beach is a very peaceful spot, at least in my imagination, where there are no boom boxes or screaming kids.
The banner I used is too large for the width of this card. I just snipped in between the second and third pennant from the left, then put a glue dot on top of the one from the right portion and placed the last one from the left portion on top of that. You'd have to look really, really closely to spot it.
