KitCat Sunday is hitting the beach!

 Happy SONday to you!

 It's time for another Kit-Cat creation, the once a month traveling image/card kit ingredients that's a surprise to us until we open it!  This month, our hostess was the uber fab Jeanette!  After months of a long hard winter, Jeanette was ready for some sunshine, warmth and beach radiance ~ so off to the beach with TGF's Cheeky Beach!   She must have known this was on my GOTTA HAVE IT LIST!  I {heart} this image!  She sent us this yummy image, patterned paper and some of the cutest beach embellishments to go with!

I wanted to do something fun for this card and chose another tent card - these are a labor of love ...  but fun, fun, fun! I set up cheeky beach in a sun-soaked circular platform surrounded by a netting full of seashells and water drops :)  I just couldn't resist giving her some bling so she's wearing some diamonds to the beach *wink!*  I grabbed my tropical colors of cardstock in turquiose & sunset colors - which also played off the colors in the whimsical dsp she sent.

And coincidentally today I will be at the beach!  We are off to play in the surf and sand and have a nice lunch at the restaurant on the docks.  The weather here in Miami has been picture perfect for the beach so off we go!   I hope you can also stop by and see what the other kittens have created with this identical kit!  Thank you, Jeanette, for this awesome tropical card kit this month! x0x0
