This is Operation Write Home sketch #174
The circle sentiment is a die cut from My Minds Eye. It had a scalloped edge which I cut off with my Nestabilities. I bought 6 of these month ago and paid $.50 each because I liked them so much. Then I couldn't figure out how to use them! I will be making 6 cards.

For the first 3 cards I used a digi from Stampin Up. I didn't know they had digis until I paid them a call online. It cost me all of $1.10. It is an extreme surfer and he looks very agile on that board. I sent several of the last card in my last box to OWH but I made some more for the next box. The sentiment is a digi from Create With TLC. Altogether I have 34 of these cards so I guess that will be it for surfer cards this year.
Card number 3 is linked to this weeks OWH midweek challenge to use something in threes. I used 3 strands of twine. The last card also works with the 3 surf boards. I cut the bottom from a sheet of paper and each of the 3 cuts had 3 boards. Worked out perfect for me.

I guess it is time to update my blog. Don't ask me why I waited so long. The frogs are a piece of Provo Craft clip art. Six each of the first 2 for my OWH box. The last one will go in my personal stash. I used an embossing border on the last card. The inside edge left a mark on the paper that I didn't like so I made only one.
