Surfin' Safari and some exciting news

I can't get the song Surfin' Safari out of my head since I started making this card. The image and sentiment are from Pollycraft. The surfboard paper is from a 12"sheet by Karen Foster which I bought reduced for 15p from Crafty Emma's Store and the star paper is K & Co Americana. I used the MS cherish punch and some card candi, both great for male cards, and some Baker's twine.

Challenges:
Pollycraft Travel/holidays
ASPOS Splish splash
Paperplay At the Beach
Sparkles Forum At the Beach
Truly Scrumptious Fab sketch
Cards for Men Stars
DYSU Use a star
MAWTT Surfin' Safari (just couldn't resist a second entry)

Now those of you who know the song will be singing away with me. All together now - Let's go surfin now, everybody surfin now, come on a Safari with me.

Before I go to link up and do some commenting I must tell you my exciting news. I was checking my e-mails last night and was taken aback to receive one out of the blue from Linnie at Whoopsi Daisy saying she loved my work and asking me to be a guest designer for 6 months.So I hope you'll play along with this Sunday challenge with me.
