Missing You by the Seashore

I think that making up a title for these posts is the weirdest thing to have to do regarding blogging......

I mean, you can only say Happy Birthday, or Merry Christmas so many times! You need to be kind of clever with the titles and clever does not comes easy after breathing in glue fumes!!

Actually, there are no fumes......I am just making up excuses as to why I have crappy titles... haha!!

Saturday's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is an inspiration challenge. Today, this is the inspiration we had to work from. How pretty is this bracelet eh? (I had to say eh?)

Now, I am not sure if I am allowed to post this picture of the bracelet without permission from someone, but I am sure I will find out!!

I was shopping at The Paper Pickle today and picked up this stampset "by the Seashore" from My Favorite Things!

It must have been fate that I buy it, because I have wanted this one but never had the opportunity to buy it. Okay, that is a lie - I have always wanted it, and I have had the opportunity - just never took it!

But, when I was in The Paper Pickle, Kim told me they had a new line of stamps that were kind of neat, and lo and behold! My Favorite Things!!

What could I do? I was helpless........

So sorry about the picture is kind of dark......but it is nightime here and my lighting is sh^&?(*tty!!
Edited to add: Fixed it!! yay!

That being said, I stamped the main image on Very Vanilla and coloured it with Copics.

The patterned paper is from one of my Paper Pretties boxes in the fall, so I am not sure what it is. Flowers are of course Prima, and Ribbon is Offray. The card base is Kraft from Stamping UP!!

I am soooo glad that I got some cardstock from Stamping UP! through Kraftin' Kimmie because I love it!

I love being able to read about Groovy Guava, and Certainly Celery and actually have a clue as to what you guys are talking about!!

Now for the sentiment.......don't look too close is kind of wonky.

I don't know what the heck I was doing when I was stamping that! I guess I blacked out for a sec because when I realized what I was doing I was smushing it all over the card, for heaven's sake!! More fumes! phththththt!!!

That's it for today.....I am having Easter here tomorrow so I probably, most likely, won't be blogging tomorrow so have a Happy Easter Day!!


  1. Beautiful card! I just found your blog through SCS! It's lovely! Thanks so much for sharing your creations with us! :D

  2. I love this card! I am heading to the beach on Friday (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)! What a perfect card! I should make a similar one to send instead of a postcard...
    PS- I love that you say "eh"! I know it's a Canadian thing, but the Michiganders say it too (especially the UPers!), and it makes me miss MI!

  3. Great card and beautiful bracelet!!! I am Canadian eh !!!
