Have a swell day...


 Hello again!

Because today is the last day to take advantage of the
special bundle deal of 30% OFF the Charmed by the Sea collection at Purple Onion Designs AND get FREE SHIPPING over $75 on domestic orders, I figured it was a good time to share another card. This time around I did a mix and match of some Charmed by the Sea builder elements and characters from the older Sunshine Lake collection. The beautiful Beach House sets the scene and I gave it a simple white wash paint job. I've never been to the east coast but for some reason this kept bringing Nantucket to mind as I was stamping and coloring. To add a bit of distance between the house and my sunbathers, I stamped one of the Beach Fences up on the sand dune. The lucky owners of this quaint seaside get-away are Sampson, the bear, August, the turtle and sweet little Shelly, the mouse. They are enjoying a lazy summer day just soaking up the sun and breathing in the salty sea air. The sentiment is from the new Seaside Sentiment set and it was the perfect size to finish off this design. With that I had a finished summer card that is just beyond cute... have I mentioned how much I love these new stamps?! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
