Shore Do Love You



Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!!! We got to spend a little time with family and did a little BBQ...nothing too exciting...LOL!!! I did a little stamping on Sunday which was fun but the good fairy didn't come clean my stamp room....the nerve!!!! She may be holding out for a raise...LOl!!!  Anyway.... 

I made this card for last weeks Color Challenge on Splitcoast....the colors were Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Expresso. I thought the colors would be perfect for a nautical theme so I inked up my Reverse Confetti Happy Harbor set. The water was sponged on with Marina Mist then the fish and whale were stamped with the same ink. Marina Mist card stock was used for the waves and the same ink was sponged around the clouds. The lighthouse was colored with copics, the rocks were torn from Early Expresso  card stock and the sentiment from the same set was stamped with Early Expresso.  The twine and bubbles stamped with Cherry Cobbler finish it off.  I gave this to my hubby just cause!!

The rest of my day will be spent cleaning my stamp room....I have been sooo bad lately about not putting things away. I used to clean up after every project but lately I have just been shoving things aside. So....no more stamping till I can see the counter top...LOL!!!

Thanks for stopping by.....have a great day!!!!

Good luck with the cleaning! As I recall, your workspace is much larger than mine and could take a while!

What a great scene you created! I love the lighthouse on the hill and the fish jumping out of the water! Glad you had a fun weekend....Oh...cleaning the stamp cave- I always create better when I pick up and try to organize a bit first!

Joan, I love your nautical card. Great design, love all the dies and anything to do with the ocean is a favorite of mine. I am on the coast visiting and my daughter and I are going to case your card with a different lighthouse and dies. Thanks for the fab idea.
