Seaside by Request

I spent the better part of my day putting together a layout for the Stamp of the Month swap coming up on May 1st and ordering pictures from Studio J to go on that layout along with planning a birthday layout for Miss B and ordering pictures for that I am about to go cross eyed from looking at pictures on the computer, but then I got a phone call that I hadn’t posted a card today which made the guilt set in.

You’d think the caller thought I was hitting the coconut tequila or something!  It really does make a yummy drink and since I was thinking about the beach…

Since the Seaside Scrapbook Workshop On the Go was within reach I decided I could whip out one little card and I think I even got everything straight, LOL!

This is just a 4.75 X 3 inch card, perfect to stick on a package for a summer birthday or maybe to write some romantic note in to my DH for a fantastic weekend at the beach and how much I appreciate him.

I matched the ink to the paper, Pear, Smoothie and Desert Sand tied on a piece of hemp and stuck on some Aqua Dots.  Card done and posted to blog…now onto that Coconut Tequila!

Thanks for stopping by!


AHSC #46 – Bring Your Sunshine

I was talking with my friend Betsy the other day and she asked “remember when we used to do the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge all the time?”

I did remember and I still go look at the ahh-mazing artwork there every week, but I just haven’t felt like doing any challenges lately.  Then today I looked and she had participated so I thought “what the heck, why not?”  I headed for the craft room as soon as I had my pizza dough mixing in the bread machine, printed the challenge and put my thinking cap on!

This is the sketch I had to work with and sunshine immediately came to mind – probably because we’ve had some  too many gray days here in the great Pacific Northwest!

I had recently reorganized my stamp room and remembered seeing some retired “Surf’s Up” paper and thought I’d start there!  I then located a sunshine image on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and pretty soon I was on my way!


Lately, I’ve tried to kick up the inside of my cards by adding images and a little glitz!  Here I stamped the sun in Goldrush and the sentiment in Sky and added some Teal Shimmer Trim for a little pop!


Thanks for stopping by for a little sunshine – I hope you’ll also take time to visit the other challenge entrants over at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog!
