Beach-loving Penguin...Just Us Girls Challenge #452~Beach

Hello,

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #452~Word Week, where our sweet Maria (which reminds me: I love Brooks and Dunn's "My Maria"...just sayin') has chosen BEACH as this week's inspiration. Ahhh....a beach...sound of the waves, a comfy chair, a good mystery novel, warm sun, gentle breeze...I could go for that right now!

If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from Ros Crawford, who we are thrilled to welcome as our August guest designer, and my talented teammates: SueAngieVickiInaBobbyNancyLisaMaria. Please drop by their places and leave them some love.

My card is a quirky take on the theme. My Penguins in Paradise set needed a play so, I went in search of 'something different' to spark ideas.  Didn't take long to find it! My card is inspired by Mayuri's card here; her rainbow palm trees...oh my stars! Had to case...simply, completely, totally had to (although we know her's is far-and-away better than mine)....


That little penguin, along with all the other penguin cuties from the set, make me smile!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and hope that you can carve in some crafting time to join us in the gallery!
