A Day At The Beach

















Hello thank you for swinging by today. As you can tell :-) made a fast and simple card for this weeks challenge over on Stamp with fun a "A Day At The Beach". To "pep" the card a bit up i have added Stickles to the waves and Paper glaze to mimic water. looks nice in real.

I was reading though your comments on my posting this past Saturday. Please know.. the image is NOT a card that I have made. That is a picture that Magnolia has made on the computer - probably :-) i am very sorry for the confusion. I do not want to take credit for something that's not my artwork. The image is a Pre-view of a stamp that's most likely in one of the next collections. kind of like the ones that go up on the Magnolia Inspiration site.
Stamps: Magnolia "Tilda on Surfboard" Lazy Days of Summer Collection
Papers: My Minds Eye, Stampin up
Embellishments: Paper Glaze, Prima Marketing flowers, Fo Fa La buttons, Offray ribbon, Stickles, Martha Stewart peal stickers

Below is a picture of Lucas, me and Niklas on Jensen Beach, Florida 2009
