About the only thing good happening at the beach in Southwest Florida this week is the surf.  Not being inclined to go out during the Tropical Storm that's beating us up I don't know if there's any surfers taking advantage of it.  Debbie has been sitting out in the Gulf and chilling instead of moving up and westward.  So for many days now it has been pouring and the wind has been blasting.  My poor little doggie doesn't know what to do, he just hates the rain and this is much worse than the usual little rainfalls he's seen.  Then there's all the people, including my niece who have places on and near the water, they are not faring well.  Then there's the news that Debbie is expected to be sticking around for another two or three days. 
I can't change the weather outside but here in the craft room I can bring a little sunshine to my desk by making bright cheery cards. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Surfer Dude"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Versa Magic "Aegean Blue"
paper - Stampin' Up "Bayou Blue" cs; Bazzill "Glow" and "Beeswax" cs; My Mind's Eye "Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing" dsp
miscellaneous - copics; ribbon; sun charm; bling; My Favorite Things "Sentiment Strips"  die-namics; machine stitching

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things MFTWSC77 - sketch
Paper Playtime #77 - Anything Goes Plus a Sentiment
Cutie Pie #21 - One For the Boys
Let's Ink It Up - Use Your Favorite Embellishment (charms are my favorite)
