I'd Rather Be at the Beach Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. If you are coming from Dana's blog, you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented crafters. You will find loads of projects with a beachy theme throughout this hop! If you love the beach as much as I do, then you won't want to miss this one! We have LOTS of blog candy to offer! Please check back daily for your chance to win!

Here's the lineup:
Kim: http://kimmarieskorner.blogspot.com/ - Your next stop

For today, I created a simple card for my favorite fishermen.  My husband's sister and brother-in-law took our girls fishing at the Gulf of Mexico a few summers back.  For the following Christmas, they sent the girls fishing poles and an invitation to come back and fish again.


All supplies are from Close to my Heart. Miracle Papers. Backwoods, Campin' Fever and True Happiness stamp sets.  Desert Sand, Lagoon and Pacifica inks. Bamboo and Colonial White cardstock. Silver Pearl embossing powder.

 To win my blog candy, please leave a comment on this post AND become a follower of this blog.  For a bonus entry, become a fan of Curls & Grins on Facebook and comment that you have done so. Winner will be announced June 1st, so come back here to see if you've won!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you hop along and see what Kim has in store for today!
