Good Morning everyone I'm back today with a brand new challenge at

The papers are Echo Park Paradise Beach from last summer and the sentiment stamp is CC Designs which I first spotted on Mary J's blog, again last summer.

Pop over to the Diva's challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and some really cute inspiration from the Diva's.

That's it from me today, thank you for stopping by
Shock horror tomorrow I'm going to post a card that isn't for any DT!!

I love this card, Laurie...during our stay in Florida last year we were in a Disney park and for the first time in my life I saw stingrays. Since then I adore them...we have touched them and they are so soft!
So you brought back my memories...thanks!

I don't use the word "precious" very often, but your card is just PRECIOUS! I love that darling image, and you've colored it so beautifully. The bow is the perfect complement to the papers, and that button is the perfect punctuation! Thanks so much for sharing with us at AGOAC this week!
