Gone to the Beach


Hi. Does sitting on the beach sound like fun. While I was putting this card together for the
House Mouse Challenge, which is the theme On the Beach, it was snowing and blowing. We ended up with abut 24 inches on the ground. And, our snowblower quit. I'm off this afternoon to get a belt for it and hope that that is it's only problem. Anyway, this was fun to make, using bright colors, and recalling warmer days and sun and sand!
The papers are all from the Citrus Paper Pack. I just purchased this image last week from the House Mouse website. They had a buy four get the fifth stamp free sale going and I could not resist. I think I'm going to have to free up another drawer for House Mouse Stamps!!!! The sentiment is a dollar stamp from Michaels. Colored with Copics and sponged the sea and sky in. I used a water stamp in the same color that I sponged, stamped off on paper towel first so it went on light and just gave the hint of ripples in the water. I embossed a small amount of a neutral color embossing powder with a little glitter in it in the sand.
Hope you're having a great Tuesday. Have to finished un-decorating today too. Thanks for stopping by. Until later...............
