Beach Bum Bob

Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' new image, Beach Bum Bob, has finally reached the age of retirement! To celebrate, Bob hopped a plane to a far off tropical paradise in search of young ladies. Unfortunately, for Bob, all the young ladies think that Bob is really Santa incognito and therefore not only off limits but way to old! On the other hand, the little old ladies with purple hair love him! Last seen, Bob was boarding a jet and heading home!

Yummy White Iridescent Vellum and Snow Cone

To create today's card,  I used silver and gold embossing powder on Yummy White Iridescent Vellum, heat set it and then fussy cut the feathers. After stamping a background on Snow Cone 65# Pop Tones cardstock, I used a glue gun and made mounds to give the feathers dimension and secure it to the cardstock. The vellum and cardstock are both from The PaperTemptress. I wish I could take credit for the idea of this card but I was inspired by a card created by someone else however, I neglected to write down that person's name. If you know who it is please let me know so that I can give that person the credit!

Whether you are a sailor, a pirate, or a land lover, you've gotta feel sorry for poor old Peg-leg-Pete from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps! He's sailed all seven seas and he's been in many battles but now we see him floating down the river with a chest full of gold to give to someone, anyone willing to take the irritating squawking parrot off his shoulder so he can get some rest!
