Summer Fun

Hello Friends!
I have a fun summer card to share today!

On Mother's Day my great grandson and great granddaugher came to visit me.
They are so cute!  Paislie is 3 1/2 and Jenson is 2!
When I saw this cute, cute Crafty Secrets image in the 
they reminded so much of my sweet little ones,
I totally changed gears of what I was doing 
and put together  a cute summer card!

I had a bit of leftover paper from another project using Crafty Secrets
and the colors fit my card perfectly.
Have you seen these two kits?
OMGoodness, they are chock full of vintage/retro goodness!
The papers are gorgeous, let alone all the ephemera!

I added a striped bow with a striped vintage button....
I love how the stripes of the ribbon match the stripes in the little ones towel!
Gee, how many times did I say striped/stripes
in the paragraph above...LOL!!

I found in my stash a tiny, but real starfish, a shell and a bit of sea glass.....
which were the perfect embellishments!

I added a "sandpaper" beach for a bit of texture and

fussy cut the bottom of the image so they would look like they were walking on the sand!

A bit of Twilight Stickles was added to the water.

Did you know Crafty Secrets is going completely digital?
Yep, they are and they have a fabulous sale going on to close out
all the non-digital products...
check it out, they are practically giving it away!!
