Summer Vacation

Hello.  Extremely busy week last week, so I was so not in my craft room doing my thing.
Today, I just "needed" to color something, but found out that being away from it for six days made my mojo go for a walk.  I played with this card all day and set it aside and pulled it back out............oh my!

I made this card for the challenge at Just Magnolia Week 119, and the theme is Summer Holiday Fun.
Well, whats better than a vacation at the beach.  I love this new little Tilda snorkeling, but have you seen the price of these now!  They are making them too expensive for me!  They are $15.99 for these little people and they aren't even on wood! OK that's my rant for the day!

Card Recipe:

Papers - sand and water are from Summer Stack and glitter paper is also from A DCWV Stack.
Little seashells are stickers by K & Co.
Crab and Turtle are dollar stamps from Michael, as well as the sentiment.
The sun and the plant are old stamps from companies no longer in business.
Sand border is by EK Success
Colored with Copics

Hope your enjoying your Saturday.  Thanks for stopping by today, will be back tomorrow, and Monday is House Mouse Monday and also my post for my local stamp store.  Until later.......

I have to agree with you on the Magnolia's. Just can't afford $16.00 + postage for one stamp.

But they are precious and color up magnificently. You mojo may have been hiding, but your card still turned out beautifully.

This is adorable. The border punch is so fun. The undersea adventure scene is fab and the Tilda in the spot light brilliant. Love your cards.
