Wouldn't a beach holiday be fun!


Yes, a beach vacation would be wonderful... but as I can't go. I will make a card with little Turtles enjoying the surf instead. This fits perfect for the Cute Card Thursday challenge this week. Vacations and/or Travel ... cards that show fun and vacation scenes. Well these little guys are definitely having some vacation fun! Me I would be the one kicked back relaxing, that is what my perfect vacation would be.....

Ok I will stop day dreaming and get to the details of the card. This card just fell together. In fact I really didn't think about any of the papers or embellishments. Now please don't tell me that shows =). I colored this adorable new Cornish Heritage Farms stamp with my copic markers and highlighted with my white gel pen. I then pulled out a package of Cloud Nine Travel papers and embellishments. It all went together. The papers matched, I matted each pattern paper with the coordinating solid papers. I layered them on a Bazzill Card stock. I double matted the image. Now I have to tell you about all of the stitching. Those are something new to me, they are from Cloud Nine as well. The are called 3-D Gel Stitch, they have adhesive on them so you just cut to size and stick them down. They are different, and come in lots of styles and colors. I won't use them all the time, but they are fun once in a while. I then added some Prima Flowers that seemed to magically be the perfect colors. The words are both chipboard and card stock stickers that are made to match the papers. It is a lot I know, but I was watching baseball, and it all went down and bam it was there. I hope you like it.

Well it is Friday, lots of things to get done... if I can quit picking up Gato and listening to that loud purring noise. Just too cute to not stop and play with and love on! Darn Cat! =) Have a great Friday!
