Soak Up The Sun Surfer Boy card (Bugaboo image)

Good morning everyone,

I'm doing this quick post this morning before I go out for a lovely brunch with my in-laws, mmmm.... I feel like I can hear the bacon sizzling already hehe.

I have used a gorgeous male image from Bugaboo Stamps and glossed his surfboard. I was using the plain side of this paper which was a lovely shade of blue/teal but when I turned it over to tape it I couldn't resist using this side instead, I love all the colours and the busyness of it.

I have used 3 little beach huts and the banner from Flourish with a Bling's Nicky's Beach Huts set (there is also a green hut in the set). Usually this set is $4.95 but for this month the whole set is only $2 as is all our products as we're having a Stocktake sale. It's been huge so far and I'm really hoping we can reach new records this month. See below or click HERE for more details.

Flourish with a Bling have a massive Stocktale sale for June - Every product is just $2 !! All throughout June, everything is $2, no exceptions!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders) or all the postage for Aussie orders.
