Birthday Blog Hop For Amy

Today is Amy Tsuruta's Birthday
We are going on a virtual destination birthday blog hop in her honor.   I am taking Amy to Canon Beach Oregon for sun, surf, sand, salt water taffy and clam chowder!
Amy's always a gracious hostess of our local crafting get togethers!
Fun that today we get to spoil HER with love and gratitude on her birthday. This hop is for you sweet Amy - thank you for all you do as a friend and inspirational crafter in the card making community. 

After my blog head to Friday Harbor by hopping to Kimberly's Blog.
If you lose your way along the hop the full blog list is HERE on hop hostess Kate's blog. 
 With my destination in mind, I made a fun card with this adorable crabby 
using the set Flippin' Fabulous from Your Next Stamp.  I also used Slippery Slopes and Stitched Clouds Die set from A Jillian Vance Design for my sand panel. 
I stamped in on the inside as well with my birthday sentiment.

Lisa, thanks so much for your participation-- love that you took us to Cannon Beach and made all the connections to and from our destinations-- if you can believe it, this year was the first time ever (after numerous trips to OR coast) that I actually discovered Cannon Beach (in real life!)--- who knew how neat a little town it is?!! Great little coffee/pastry shop on the main drag we discovered and a quilt shop with gorgeous fabrics (130$ later.... sigh). Thanks for including pics, and of course a punny, bright, awesome card!! I hope you are well and sorry to have missed you last month. xo
