'Beach Fun' at Fussy and Fancy

Hello there, how is your summer going so far?
It has been busy, busy here
with all the outside work, going to our vacation home 'up north' as we call it,
and all my DT commitments.
But I am not complaining, I enjoy all of it and feel so blessed
to even be able to do any of it!

Today is a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy.
I think my card is more fussy then fancy this!

We are being sponsored by Sheri Baldy Designs -  My Besties.
This is my first time working with them, and I chose this little cutie!

I colored her with my Copics, 
and added Sparkle N Sprinkle Cloud Nine glitter to the duck floatie!

The cork letters I am embarrassed to say, I have had for years and years,
I am surprised they still had "sticky stuff" on them

The ribbons I used are from the Really Reasonable Ribbon club I belong to.
I used a few dies for the clouds, palm tree, waves and anchor.
I finished up with a few gold charm pieces I cut from an old pair of earrings.
"Water" Dew drops were also added .

Now just get yourself right on over to the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog
and see what my teamies have created to inspire you.
These girls put out some gorgeous creations there!

Entering the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts .... Summer Fun
Cute Card Thursday .... Ladies Only
Crop Stop Challenge #6 ....ATG(Memory Box Clouds dies)
Pile It On .... Hot Fun In The Summertime
Jo's Scrap Shack .... Nautical Sea Scapes
