Getting Geographical Challenge

Hi Everyone,

It is time for the Getting Geographical Challenge over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge blog. And the geographical location this month is:


and here are a few facts:

Great Barrier Reef

Wet Tropics Rain forest



named after William Wellington Cairns

sugar farming


I took my inspiration from the fact that there is a big Surfing culture in Australia. This would be a good challenge to pull out any stamps you have with kangaroos, koala bears and beach themes. Pop over to the Stamping Vacation blog and link up your entry. You have until April 28 to complete the challenge. All challenge entries qualify for the monthly gift certificate drawing. Here is my card.

I used a cute stamp from The Greetings Farm - Surfer Ian. The flip flops are from Art Impressions. Happy Birthday sentiment is from Penny Black. The Blue CS and water paper are from DCWV. I stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copics.

Some fun challenges for Surfer Boy:

Dutch Dare: Celebrations

Pile It On: cutie patootie

Wee Memories: Anything goes

Scrapbook Sisters: Anything goes

Crafts and Me: Anything goes

The Greetings Farm: Spring Break

The Pink Elephant: Sketch

Stamps R Us: Spring theme -I used the theme and interpreted it as spring "break".

Birthday Sundaes: Birthday spring theme -I used a spring Break theme

Hope your Monday is going smoothly. I better get to work on our taxes.
