Vacation Vibes


Hello, I had some time over the weekend to get inky and as soon as I saw the challenge at TGIF Challenges, I knew I wanted to join in the fun. The challenge is Vacation Vibes. Who doesn’t wish, right about now, that they were on vacation lounging in a hammock by the ocean? ME!!! Some of you are probably thinking, Nancy you live 5 miles from a permanent vacation and it’s called the Gulf of Mexico. LOL You don’t need to dream, just do it! I know that is true, but I don’t get out there as much as I should, especially this time of the year as it is just too gosh darn hot. Although, evening beach walks do happen on a more regular basis. Last night at around 8 we did take a bike ride. It was great till we stopped by the inter-coastal to look at the water, it was short lived, as we quickly had to get back on our bikes before we were eaten alive by mosquitos and no-see-ums. The key to bike riding in the summer, is you just have to keep moving.

I am also going to play along over at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: I made the polaroid type window myself. The sun is from Lawn Fawn on a piece of DSP, the scene and greeting were sponged with Oxide inks and then the water ripples were made with a stamp by SU. The flip flops are from Impression Obsession and the smile die is from MFT.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day and find time to be creative too! Nanc’

  1. You do create lovely beach scenes. I guess that you have the beach at your fingertips. This one made me smile!

  2. We are neighbors in the gallery at TGIF so I wanted to drop by and say Hi Neighbor. This scene is outstanding. I love your water but the rest of the layout is very happy together as well.

    • Thanks neighbor! LOL I love Colorado so I would be your neighbor any time…well maybe not in the winter, too cold for this Florida girl. Thanks for bopping by!

  3. Beautiful summer vibe card! You make me want to go there NOW! Perfectly done. Thank you for playing with us at the HLS Dies Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.

  4. I’m not in Florida but I’m glad I get to see a scene similar to this every day. Of course during the weekend it’s filled with boats, pontoons and jet skis. But the rest of the week looks as serene as your little beach scene, Nancy.

  5. This is lovely, Nancy, and I wish I was there. So serene……I need a vacation!
