Happy Sunday!

This week at the Paper Players, Joanne has a Theme Challenge for us. “Beside the Seaside” is one of my favorite places to be.  The salt air, sand, the sounds of the seagulls, and the tranquility of the ocean all come to mind when I think of the beach.  My favorite time on the beach is during the months of September and October The ocean breezes are still warm and the beaches are much less crowded.  It’s a peaceful place, indeed!

I went back into my stamp archives for the High Tide stamp set. It’s a favorite summer stamp set and I love the sentiments.  I’m sending this to someone special who could use some congratulatory encouragement!

Along with all of the stamped images from the High Tide stamp set, I used lots of ink: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Soft Sky. Whew!! I added my stamped top layer to a Crumb Cake card base and decided to tuck a Real Red layer between the two. The Real Red layer gives the image layer some extra depth.

I went off the grid a bit today going back into my archives, but I enjoyed my visit beside the seaside! Thank you, Joanne!

So, think about being “beside the seaside” add lots of ink, a Real Red layer and link up with us over at the Paper Players. We love to see your cards.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
