Beachy Keen!!



Good Thursday morning.....well, I guess it's actually almost noon!! Today I didn't have to get up for work, or get up to take anyone to school....so I slept in until after 9am!!! Woohoooooo! It was awesome!! However, when I did my favourite activity of the day (make my trip down to the mailbox, hoping for some happy mail), I was perplexed!! I had a key in my mailbox to a larger compartment, which means that I have a package that won't fit in my regular slot. So I took the key and opened the bigger box and......it was empty!! Now how mean is that?? That's just like a big giant PSYCHE!!! I am expecting the lovely new stamps from High Hopes that are being released next week and I am SURE that's what was supposed to be in there. Anyhoo, I ran right home and called the post office. They SAID they will try to get a hold of the driver and see if maybe he gave me the wrong key or put my package in the wrong box....and I'm really hoping no one else gets my package. My husband is teasing me, saying that the post office decided to keep all my wonderful rubber....needless to say, I'm not amused. And I'm still waiting for a phone call back......

Today's card features a favourite HH stamp of mine, called Little Sand Architect. I stamped it in Wausau bright white cardstock, coloured in with my Copics and cut it out with my Nesties. The card base is Pumpkin Pie and I accented with Real Red, Brocade Blue and So Saffron. The dp is by My Mind's Eye from the Star Bright collection. The sentiment is from a Lizzie Anne Designs set called Shore Thoughts.
I just added some striped ribbon and there ya go, a nice Beachy card!!



So do you want to have a boo at a teeny tiny portion of one of the stamps that I'm waiting on pins and needles for???



Hehe! I don't want to show you TOO much! Do you know what that is?? Take a guess!!

Okay, I have a million and one samples to make for new releases next week, so I best get busy!!! Have a stampy fantastic day!!!

How cute, I need that one for my son!!! I think the sneak peak is of a scuba diver...maybe....maybe not, but that's my guess! Awesome card Kimmie, I can't wait until the new release! Havea wonderful day and I hope you get your package soon!

Hi Kimmie....cute card!
My guess on the stamp would have to be a kid with a swimming mask on! Am I close???
Have a super day, and I hope your package comes soon!!

oooohhhhhh so super adorable!!!
Hey kim, what color copic markers do you use on the faces, I use my watercolor pencil but want to explore copics....and want to start with skin first.
You do beautiful copic work by the way.

Is it a little boy in a scuba mask? I recall a cute little girl in one that is already released! Hopefully you'll get your new stamps soon!

Oh Kim, that is just terrible. I felt for you reading this message. Knowing you with all of your creative energy you would be posting new HH cards to a sneak peek. Don't discourage...they will make it safely to you. Meaning, you will not have any excuses to go to your scraproom and play. After all, a stamper needs her rubbers.

Beautiful card, one of my fave rubber stamps.

Bela
P.S. Good luck and I hope it gets there soon, like tomorrow morning.
