Always Thinking Of You

Good Saturday Morning!  I believe it is my last work Saturday of the Season....WHAHOO!  I have survived!  It is a miracle!  lol

I have been able to sneak into the craft room quite a bit this Summer Season so I am very happy about that!

Today's card is another Beach inspired card, actually I perused Pinterest for this particular design.

I masked off a strip of the Pure Luxury White card base and sponged my different colors of ink, to create sand, sea, sun, and sky.....just a little taste.  I added some Distressed Stickles to create some texture to the sand, some awesome Prismatic Glitter, 'Frozen', by Gina K Designs, the stamp set is also available there, By The Tide 2.  The shell dies are from CuttleBug.  I stamped the sentiment and then 'tossed' on some sequins and little jute twine to complete the look.   And last but not least, I made a matching envelope.  I am addicted to making these, so fun, so easy!
I wish you could see how much that Prismatic Glitter really sparkles and's blinding! 
This card will be entered into the Mod Squad Blog, Coastal Inspirations and the Simon Says Monday, Anything Goes.
May all of your summer days include some fresh salty air!
Thanks for coming by.


  1. Sensational adaption of the sea and sun. Your are so clever. Bet was quick and easy for you.

  2. What a "beachy" card! Fabulous! Not a beachy girl myself but my hubby can't survive without some salt, sand and sunshine every now and then...we went to the beach for the first time this year a couple of weeks ago, and he was out there swimming and sunning himself and I was rugged up under the shelters reading a SU catty lol I tis winter by the way! Not like yours of course but it was a windy day, sunny, but windy! Have a great weekend my "beachy" friend!

  3. What a fun card and wonderful design! I love the sand and shells.....wish I were there! Great job, my friend!
