A sweet ride...

It's almost time to leave for the day! Woo Hoo! It's been a very productive day for me at work. Lots of numbers and too much time sitting at my desk. I need to move! hahaha... I wish I was this little girl out on the waves just enjoying herself. To catch that perfect wave with a sunset in the background would be the ultimate in ending the day, yea? Sigh, since I'm not in Hawaii no can do. Plus I don't know how to surf so I would probably be under the water instead of on top of it. LOL!
I made this card for one of my besties who just had a birthday. She and I actually spent the day with my cousin at the happiest place on Earth last weekend. If you guessed Disneyland then you are correct! We also hit CA Adventure as well. It was so much fun. We visited the usual attractions but also did a lot of the kiddie rides which was perfect. No waiting in line for too long and I think we were feeling a bit nostalgic. And the best part was the Halloween decorations. I'll try to post some of the pictures next time.
On to the card. So was another fun but simple card. I used two TGF images and altered them to fit my vision of a little girl surfing on a fabulous set of waves in the sunset. I used surfer Ian and switched out his head with WS-Nahla. I colored in a cute top and made her necklace into a pooka shell one. My friend is always wearing her pooka shells. haha. I've used this set up before, but this time to give it a little drama I used some origami paper to mimic a sunset. I love this card and was very reluctant to part with it. O well, no worries she deserves it and I was happy to give it to her. I'll just make myself another one. :)
Okie dokie, heading out to the park for softball practice. Hope you all have a wonderful evening and afternoon. Mahalo for stopping by!!

Hi Leanne! Love your altered surfer girl! I was doing this once and didn't know how to cover up Ian's chest! Great idea to draw a "rash guard"! Love it!
