Fun at the Beach

These boys are having so much fun at the beach and it's just way too hot so they went to buy a popsicles to cool down.

And, not to be outdone, these girls are doing what girls always do... look good. And, they have to match their polka dot bikini's with a glittery flower.

Both cards are for Beate's Weekly Sketch Challenge. Penguin Dude and Penguin Chick is from Imaginisce, A Shore Thing Collection. I was lucky to snag these stamp for only .29 cents when our LSS was closing. And, I have to used these cuties before the summer ends. Both patterned paper is from Stampin' Up, Cutie Pie, Designer Series Paper. The boys popsicles are covered with liquid applique and the girls are wearing mini-prima flowers and covered with Martha Stewart, gemstone glitter.

Make sure to scroll down to see my card for Taylor's cupcake challenge that I created today.
