Dreaming of the Beach...

Can you hear the seagulls crying and feel the sand between your toes? This card makes me think of a late afternoon at the beach, soaking up the last warm rays of the day. It could just be the fact that we woke up to SNOW this morning - what is up with that?!? I am in need of some warmer weather, and this card reminds me that there is a warm spot on a beach calling my name.

This is another one of the cards we made at the mega stamp-a-stack. What a great masculine card or sympathy card! And so quick to put together - first I stamped the lighthouse image and then ran it through my Square Lattice embossing folder. I really like the added texture to the main panel. Add a bit o' Crumb Cake seam binding and a sentiment and you're done! Stop by tomorrow for another card and a preview of a special treat coming on Friday. 'Bye for now!

Stamps: Uncharted Territory, Sincere Salutations
