Going to the Beach


Why is it every time I got to the beach this is the type of guy I see!!!!  I never get to see all the hunks like you see in the movies, but the beach is always loaded with "oldies but goodies".  Surely I couldn't be attracting them!

We have another challenge beginning at Digi Haven today and would love for you to play along with us.  The theme for this challenge is Life's A Beach!  Our sponsor is Bugaboo who has a wonderful prize package just waiting for the winner too - so come on over and join the fun of our challenge!

I believe this is Gus and he's pretty dapper looking and ready to ride the waves or maybe just dig in the sand!  I colored him with Copics and used Glossy Accents on the beach ball (which is why it looks a little weird!  Reflection!).  He's mounted on some Doodlebug paper.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Creative Knockouts (make it masculine), Sweet Stamps (summer), and over at 2 Cute Ink ( beach).


Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and check out our challenge at Digi Haven.

Haha! Adorable and funny card, Lynn! Yeah, I think I've seen this guy a few times myself! Love your bright colours!

Donna Hanley said...

This is funny and darling all at the same time. I didn't know real life beaches had "hunks". I've never seen any in my area. Maybe you and I need to find a new beach. I'll do some research and we'll meet on a good beach. LOL Enjoy the day, Lynn.

I guess I have to stay off the beach now. Darn! LOL. Great likeness of me though. Funny card Lynn. This is the kind I get. Great job of creating it.

Benzi said...

HAHA....I think Gus should probably just stick to playing in the sand. I think one wave would knock him out. Cute, cute card and I just love that colorful paper.

Have a fab weekend, Lynn.

Oh Yeah, when we lived in Fla, we saw a lot of Gus types too...with their thongs! Gah-ROS! But your Gus is pretty cute, and the beach ball looked quite shiny, just like a real one does. Love Gus' lil sand bucket too. And especially his 'Tude. He's right...he can wear whatever he wants. Love that dotted paper too. Cute card. TFS & Hugs
