Spring Catty and Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peeks

I managed to sit at my desk long enough to make two cards today!! Plus I walked outside with the walker for 10 minutes. Physical Therapist said I can graduate to a cane probably week after next whoo hoo! I will be driving in 5 more weeks yipee!!!!!

 This stamp set is called By the Tide and it's the first scream you heard from me when I Initially opened the new Spring Catalog. I love all things beachy, and since I live on the coast, I have lots of tiny shells and things that I pick up when walking on the beach. That's a baby starfish that washed ashore and died. I never take live things from the beach except when I was teaching and had a tank at school to keep them in. Scalloped Circle and circle punches, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Pool Party, Island Indigo, Very Vanilla card stock. Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy, and Pink Pirouette inks.

The second card uses some paper from Sale-a-Bration. I just realized I forgot to put the thread in the tag! So you will have to visualize some linen thread in it!! lol I thought the circles kind of suggested water, but the colors were bright. So I sponged some Crumb Cake ink on it to tone it down a bit. Two Tags die, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze card stolck. Cajun Craze, Old Olive & Not Quite Navy inks.

  2. Love what you've done with the stamp set! The little starfish is the perfect natural embellishment too! I really like the stamp layering on the second card and I think your invisible linen thread looks lovely!! :)

    I am so glad that you are able to get outside and move around a little more! Still praying for your complete recovery and wishing you all the best in 2013!
