Beach Bum

Hi All!  This card is probably a figment of my wishful thinking- I'm so tired of all the rain I can't wait for summer weather!  Oh to live somewhere that's always nice enough to's probably the same place that Margaretaville is (hey, if I'm gonna dream might as well dream big right?) and I would love to become a permanent resident!  But alas, I'm stuck here with the clouds and rain so I guess I'll take refuge in my craft area where I can make things bright and sunny if I want to :)  Here I've got Lil Lad Stephan from Tickled Pink Stamps (find him here) and couldn't wait to get him on a card.  I used a new 6x6 paper pad from Fancy Pants called Beach Bum and it couldn't have been more fitting.  Now, in my infinite wisdom, I chose to use a boy image to enter the TPS Challenge which is 'Bling It Out'...probably not my finest idea but I did manage to find a rhinestone arrow that I think complements Stephen nicely and I threw in a few gems as bubbles in the piece of wave paper.  Now I think it's time to unwind- I've heard it's always 5 o'clock somewhere :) 
Here's a close up of cute little Stephen and the Copics I used:
Skin: E00, E11, E13
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55
Eyes: YG61, YG67
Bracelet: E42, E43, E44; Y15
Shirt/Shoes: R46, R59, C5, C7
Shorts/Sunglasses: BV23, BV25, BV29 (I used a glaze pen for the lens)
Surf Board: Y02, Y15, YR04, YR07

It's adorable! I want to find that beach too! I had to laugh - being a non-crafty-two-left-handed-all-thumbs kind of person who prefers creativity with a Canon 7D- you speak a foreign language... E36, D42, Flashy Pink BINGO!
