A Day At The Beach

This is the fun card I have up on the
Dies R Us inspiration blog today!

Hello and Happy Thursday to  you all!
I hope you all are enjoying your summer weather
as much as I am...though it has rained for over 1 week straight.

Since it is too wet to get to the beach,
I created my own little beach scene with several fun dies!

I first started with a masked off circle
 and SU Pool Party and Bermuda Bay inks.

Now for the fun part!
I like to buy my seasonal dies ahead of time
to give me plenty of time to use in the season we are in.
At the Dies R Us store I typed in "beach"
and all these fun dies jumped in my cart!!

which were cut from sandpaper.

that I cut two of in offsetting colors and overlapped.

cut from an old peace of wallpaper.

cut from red card stock.

cut from paper in my scrap bin.


Now how fun are these.....I will have another "lake card"
to share with you next Thursday as well.

Hahaha! They just jumped into your cart, did they? That happens to me all the time! You are too clever with this card. That IO grass is one of my favorite dies. Forgot to say "happy anniversary" in my last comment. Enjoy your little getaway!
