Life's a Beach!.....

...... and then you marry one!  This always makes me laugh as its something my hubby says.  You all know that saying 'life's a b..... (insert relevant swear word) but he always changes it when the kiddies are in earshot to 'life's a beach' and it just makes me chuckle everything time - little things I know!!!!!
Anyway, I had a birthday card I needed to do for a friends daughter who loves surfing so thought this image at Saturated Canary would be perfect.   Its not normally the sort I would go for but I love it and it was a doddle to colour.  So here it is, hope you like it!

Medium:  copics
Papers:  DCWV 'the spring stack'
Dies:  Memory Box 'puffy clouds', Whimsy corner

Challenges I would like to enter
Okay that's all from my neck of the woods, best get lively and make tea for the kiddies otherwise there will be a rebellion on my hands as apparently they're starving.
Take care folks, catch up with you soon.
