Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Life’s a beach


Yes, I did it again! This Florida girl had to have this new Beach Day MFT kit! I actually got it this afternoon and saw it on my front step when I was returning home from a difficult visit with my dad. It wasn’t him that made it hard, it’s trying to get the staff to take proper care of him that is the challenge. I come home each and every time a different person, as my hubby likes to remind me. It totally wipes me out and is depressing as can be. So I told hubby I was going to stow away for a couple hours and try to console myself with paper.

You know how much I love the recent MFT Couch Kit, as it was evident in the number of cards I posted. As of right now, I like this kit just as much. Well done MFT!

This card evolved many times, and I went back and forth with having the waves in the back or front of the card. Luckily for me, I realized before it was too late, that the brown paper that I was using as my base had script on it. (I told you I was a little distracted) So there was no flipping the waves that were already glued down and the water had to stay in the background of my design. I do love that the first wave at the very top of the card has a fun edge. That entire panel was decorated and then adhered to the card base.

I am playing along over at Double D Challenges where their challenge is Beach Time. My heart goes out to the Design Team as they just lost a wonderful team member and someone I knew as well. Hugs to each of you ladies! I will also be playing at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

Card Details: Mft Beach Day card Kit and the added accessories of Sand Castle Builder and Sand and Surf dies. I used Fun Foam and dimensionals as well.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you did something today that brought you JOY! Nanc’
