Fun in the Sun

Vickie is our hostess for the next challenge at the Sisterhood beginning today. The theme for this challenge is "Winter Blues - Let's Take A Vacation"! After 4 months of cold, cloudy days I am ready for a vacation somewhere warm. 

If I could go on a vacation now it would be to the beach. When I look at the picture I used as the focus of my creation, I can almost feel the warm breeze and the heat of the sand. It would be great to spend a day beside the water in a hammock reading.

The background paper looks like burlap and the stamps are from an Inkadoo stamp set called "Coastal". After stamping the images I fussy cut around them and used a glue runner to adhere them to the corners of the card front.

About 3 years ago, my husband and I visited my sister-in-law, her two daughters and their families for about 3 days. My younger niece is the night manager at a hotel right on Myrtle Beach and we had a room overlooking the ocean and swimming pool. It was wonderful going to sleep at night and waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves. I spend most of my time wading in and out of the water and finding sea shells. It was so relaxing.

Where would you like to vacation? Why not share your creations with us at the Sisterhood of Crafters?  You have until 8pm Sunday February 19th to enter. For more inspiration, check out the Sistah's projects. Remember there is a limit of 3 entries per person.

Hope to see you there. Happy Crafting!
