OLW57 Summer Holidays!

WooHOO!!  Two posts in one day, and I finally get to participate in the OLW Challenge. I've missed it so!

This week Jennifer has tasked us with creating a card "that is inspired by any or all of the following: summer, the beach, the sea, sun, sand, the lake, the cottage – pretty much anything that says summer and/or summer holidays." I just posted a card here for Emily's birthday on Tuesday that would qualify, but to stay legal, I inked up a new-to-me stamp from Catslife Press and paired it with an older Stampendous cling stamp that I think of anytime the word "beach" is mentioned in connection to stamping. I filled in the image a bit with my neglected colored pencils (wow am I rusty!) and added Rock Candy Stickles to the "water's" edge for some sparkle.

Now, please check out Tuesday's post and tell me which card you like better ;)

Thank you for stopping by.
