Blog Candy Winner and Life's a Beach!

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend!! The kids and I have been busy rearranging furniture and swapping out bedrooms.  We are working on turning the old office into my son's room and then my son's room into a spare bedroom!

My daughter Leah will be home for almost a month in July before she starts Vet School and this will be her space!!  And a bonus for me is that I will use my current Bedspread in the new spare room which means I get to get a new one!!  Score!!  I think the change is good for all of us involved!!  :-)

So amidst all this housework, I never got back to my blog yesterday to post my winner for this week's Growing in Unity Blog Candy winner!!  Thank  you so much to all of you who took the time to leave me some  love this week!! I wish I could send something to all of you!!  You don't know how much you all mean to me each day!!  I truly appreciate each and every one of you!!

Congratulations Cathy!!

You just won all these  yummy goodies for leaving this comment here...

The mail is not going out on Monday, but if you email me your snail mail address I will get your package out to you on Tuesday!! Thank you so much for being such a faithful follower of my blog!  I am so happy that you won!!  My email addy is
Really quickly I wanted to share with you my last week's CAS challenge card from Monday's challenge (CAS68).  The theme was summer.  And I had fun with this one!!  I mean really... Florida means SUMMER!!  :-)

The DP is Bo Bunny!!  I free hand drew the waves but was able to mimic some of the curves on the DP to make it happen!

The flip flop border is from a stamp I got at Michael's by Katie and Co. They are so cute!! I stamped them first on white CS then colored them with my Copics and then paper pieced them onto the yellow strip.

I created the sun by making a negative mask with a circle punch and sprayed Copics in yellow and orange using my air brush system.  The sentiment is from Seaside Stampin Ink.

The new DT call for the next CAS DT at SCS is underway.  Tomorrow's challenge card will be last submission for that DT.  It has been so fun for me to be on the team and I really thank Jen for allowing me the opportunity!  It was fun challenging myself in styles that don't come as naturally to me!!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!  
I will be back tomorrow as the host for our next Hippity Hop!!

OMGOSH! Kelly you just made my DAY! I'm jumping up and down with a big smile on my face. Thanks you so much.
I just love your beach card. What fun dp and those flip flops are adorable. I can't believe that you drew the waves. You are so creative and so talented. Thanks for always inspiring everyday.
So glad you are changing things around at the house. It's always good to change things up. It's a lot of work but so worth it.
