Hi, Friends!

Happy Sunday to you!  I hope all is well in your world today.  Just popping in quick to share with you a card I made recently.  I won't be crafting or posting for the next several days due to helping my son after his surgery.  He'll be hobbling around for awhile.  I wish I could take the pain for him, but he'll get better soon.  Anyways, by Tuesday afternoon I'll be saying is it 5 o'clock!  Nawww...really I'll probably be drinking coffee...strong coffee!:-)

For my card, I started with a pink card base and paired it with K&Company paper.  I water colored the background and little  Sophie.  Her outfit and sand dollars are from the stamp set At the Beach.  The palm tree is from Island Time. The dies that were used are Sweet Cuts-SophieSweet Cuts-Island Time, Sweet Cuts-Let's go to the Beach(waves), and Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders  And, the drink and sentiment is from the set Planner Series: Summer Sentiments.  Sequins(Gold) and twine(cookie dough) to finish the card.

Well, that's all for now.  Take care and thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a great week!



  1. What a pretty card, Maria! Love the beachy theme you created. Wishing your son a speedy recovery.

  2. Love that sentiment! Always makes me smile! And what a fabulous scene you have put together! Love all the little details.... the watercolor background and layered waves, the sequin coconuts, and the scalloped border on the side! Just a few of my favorites!
