Let's go surfing now, everyone's learning how. C'mon Safari with me! Well, us, that is. It's a blog surf to celebrate the 3 new stamp sets coming out on Wednesday, July 22nd. And if you surf with The Cat Pack you can win all 3 sets!

All you have to do is leave a comment on each member of The Cat Pack's blogs and you could win. I'll pick a winner and post it right here on Friday at Noon, PST.

If you came to me from Ana you are at the tail end of the surf. The beach, if you will. So go back to the very beginning to Leigh's blog and start there.

We are still doing the inspiration challenge, if you want to play. The inspiration for the challenge is this wonderful piece of fabric. The rules are the same, and if you want to play just leave a link to your design in the comment section on Leigh's blog by Saturday night. If you post on SCS or PCP. Please use the keyword, TCPTues68.

Want some inspiration for the inspiration? Here is a card I did with one of the new stamp sets, "By the Sea". Using the tried and true shower/hair gel technique. You could win this set!!
Now go play!
