Thank You

I made a set of cards for a friend of mine who has done some very nice things for me recently.  She's also the friend who owns the house at the beach that I rented earlier this year for a month.  What a lovely time that was.  I enjoyed it so much that I am booked for a repeat in 2014!

Anyway, she's helped me with a few other things and I wanted to make a few cards for her.  She requested something beachy so this is what I came up with using the Hero Arts Let's Chill clear stamp set.

I used Salty Ocean distress ink to ink up some white cardstock, tore some paper for the "sand" and stamped the other items with Jenni Bowlin and Memento inks.  I colored the palm fronds, coconuts and the little crab with Copics and  added a bit of Crystal Stickles to the coconuts.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  The palm fronds were adhered with foam dimensionals.  It came out purdy cute, I think, and my friend liked them so there you have it!

Lots of fussy cutting but it was fun!

We had a full day of rain today but the weather today was fantastic.  So pretty!!!  It was warm and sunny...I really am dreading colder weather.  Give me 80s any day! ;)

Happy Crafting!


  1. Too cute! I'm glad you're able to use this retreat!!

  2. Especially like the salty ocean inking & torn beach sand. If you had made these for me you would have had to use 'Sorry for being crabby' LOL sentiment since I was a crabby person awhile go & you know what about and I have apologized for it to the 2 people I upset which I probably did not tell you I had apologized. If you made 3 or more & photograph the set Hero Arts current challenge is for a trio of cards.
