What a week, If only I’d been By the Tide

I feel like I have abandoned my blog this week. It has been a crazy week, my wonderful UEA(unpaid executive assistant) and husband started chemo and physical therapy this week. Things have been a bit hectic, but I want to share with you a card that we made for club this month. It is special to me because, I collected the shells(real shells) while I was in Florida, right before SU leadership.

I think all of my SU Stamp Club loved making this simple but “special card”. Here is how we made this card:
Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Card stock
By the Tide and Stamp Set
Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip inks
SU chalks, Natural 7/16″ Trim Ribbon, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack
I used the BigShot to make a template with the Labels Collection Framelit
I then repeatedly stamped the sayings from By the Tide
I then used with a dauber and Marina Mist chalk make the soft background.
Happy Inking!
