HSS 102

Hi stampers and happy Tuesday!  I don't know about you all but I could use a vacation!  I'm really not a winter person and I'm sick of the dreary and cold weather already!  And it hasn't even been that snowy or cold here this year!  I'd love to be on the beach in Florida or Mexico right now!  So I guess I'll have to settle for this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

Doesn't the photo just make you feel the sand between your toes????  I love the colors of the picture and it just makes me feel warm:-)  Here's my card that was inspired by the beach:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Shore thing (retired), fabulous phrases
Paper:  Whisper white, island indigo, pool party, daffodil delight, crumb cake
Ink:  Soft suede, island indigo, pool party, daffodil delight, crumb cake, calypso coral
Accessories:  Pool party ruffled ribbon, hodgepodge hardware (retired)

Sometimes a card just calls for a retired set or accessory and that was the case here!  Oh how I'd like to be in that beach chair, kicked back with a fruity drink in my hand and my shades on:-)  It's kind of funny...or sad...I bought this set after it was retired to scrap a beach vacation we took and guess how many times I've used it....yup, this was the first one, lol!  I'm sure some of you can relate, right???? 

Now head on over the HSS and see what the design team came up with and then go to the beach with us:-)

Happy stamping!


  1. Cute card! I love the bright colors. I have one of those stamp sets that I bought after it was retired and still have yet to use it. At least you have now!! :)

  2. Well at least you have used the set. Great card!

  3. that's a GREAT chair! Always look forward to what you're going to make each week and your fun uplifting posts always make my day!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
