Hope everyone is having a great May so far! Life is a little hectic as a started a new job on Monday but I'm looking forward to the new challenge. I have a few new crafty goodies too (not used on this week's card) and hope to have some time to use them soon.

Our beach theme for Seize the Birthday this week was picked by Vicki. I dug out an old wood mounted surf board stamp and did some watercolouring with Distress Oxides.  The background is blended Distress Oxides. We took surf lessons when we were in Costa Rica late last year - so fun but really exhausting!

Be sure to stop by the blog to give some crafty love to the rest of the team as well as Surprise Party Guest Jolanda and previous winner, Stef.

Have a terrific day and a wonderful upcoming weekend.  It's Mother's Day in Canada on Sunday so wishing a great day to all of the moms, step-moms, grandmas, aunties, sisters and other mother-figures out there! I'm a proud step-mom and aunt/great-aunt.
Thanks for stopping by.
