Beach For You

Beach For You

My sweet little card today could be a Birthday, Encouragement, even a Father’s Day card, all you  have to do is write your own Happy  Birthday,  Love You, Happy Father’s Day.  It is a young boy and his dad sitting on the beach looking out at the ocean.  How sweet!

I used Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  The stamp set is a 2003 Stampin Up set.  Do not know the name someone gave me a bunch of stamps in a box.

This is the inside of the card.

Inspirations for my card comes from CAS(E) This Sketch, Just Us Girls and Creative With Stamps.  You can click on their links by clicking on each Challenge or click on the icon at the bottom.

Is crafting a big part of your life? Or are you one of those people who has always wanted to do crafty things but feel like,”Oh I can’t do that, but I would love to know how”  Would you like to earn money while doing something you love?   How would you like to get a 20%-25% discount buying the craft supplies you love?  If you answered yes to any of these, then you have found your home.  Become a Stampin Up demonstrator.  There is never any obligation to recruit or sale, that is strictly up to you.  Most demonstrators with Stampin Up are hobby demonstrators, meaning they join to get the 20%-25% discount plus the perks like getting to see the catalogs before they go to the public and pre-ordering.  If you think this is something you would like to do and are interested in more information, click here to see.  

That’s all for today!  Hope you found my card adequate.








If this comes through twice, forgive me this one time any way.

I made this card special for my sister who is a breast cancer survivor.  You never think your youngest sister would get something so dreadful and it pass you by.  She is a special lady, always taking care of others first.  She took care of our mother for 20 years before Mother passed away last September.  She needs an award for just that.


My inspiration for today’s card is from the CAS(E) this sketch Challenge. You can check out all the cards just click on the link.

I started with a card base of Blushing Bride.  I cut a 5-1/4 x 4 Whisper White panel and embossed using a retired Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I stamped the images using Memento Black Ink on a panel of  Whisper White and then colored using Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin Write Markers. After coloring, I popped all on the embossed Polka Dot panel. I then popped the Polka Dot panel onto the Blushing Bride card base. 

The inside sentiment is also from the Ribbons of Courage stamp set.  If you would like more information about creating this card or any of the others on thus blog, please contact me and I will be happy to help.

That’s it for today!
