Happy, happy Wednesday friends!
I was so excited that this was an "Anything Goes" week on The House That Stamps Built blog. The last six months have been full of trials for our family and sometimes we didn't know if we were coming or going. We have had a family member with a 4 month stent in the hospital and we are now on the road to recovery. We've helped another family member find a new in home care provider and that is working out wonderful. Recently our family lost a wonderful man in a tragic automobile accident and last week we had the chance to celebrate his amazing life. So you see, it has been quite a year!
I chose to share a card with you that I created and shared last summer. This card is so special to me because it showcases the sea and to me the sea is a place to go when you need to take a deep breath, gather your thoughts and recharge.
A few times a year, I am fortunate to visit the sea with some amazing friends and family. It may be the West Coast or the East Coast, but no matter it is a time of joy for me and a time I cherish.
I think this card says it all. My wish for you all is that you will get a chance to dip your toes into the sea, take a deep breath and relax and enjoy all that life has to offer.
I chose a sand/surf color theme and the RI Sea Quartet #8508-U stamp. I embossed the image in gold embossing powder and edged it with some Tea Dye Distress ink. I popped the image up onto an embossed aqua panel and then added that to a deep teal panel and sand colored card. For a finishing touch, I added some shimmery gold Dew Drops in two of the corners.
Now, I ask you to please stop by each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs, check out their amazing creations and leave a little love while you are there. :)
We would love to have you play along with the challenge as well, head on over to The House That Stamps Built for all of the details. Wendy will be giving away an awesome prize to one lucky person who plays along :)
