I'm baaaa-aaack!


Well the craft fair is behind me now. It was a lot of fun and I met some really great people! I even cleared a few dollars. Woo hoo! Now I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things and keep you folks entertained at least once a week.
Here's a little card I came up with after looking at Stamping 411's sketch challenge for this Saturday. I'm not sure I'm totally happy with the colors, but the Bermuda Bay looks so tropical and water-like and the Sahara Sand looks like, well, sand. LOL I'm just not sure about the Old Olive. The Pumpkin Pie is OK, but maybe too dark on top of the Bermuda Bay. I really wanted the palm trees from the new Island Oasis DSP from the summer mini.
It is also one of the things my gals will be making next weekend. We usually meet on the afternoon of the 2nd Sunday, but since it is Mother's Day, we are meeting on Saturday morning. If you are in the OKC metro area and would like to come, send me an email and I'll let you know where I am. We'd love to have you join us!
Let me know what you think of the color combo on this card. I'd really like some opinions. Until next time, remember that if I can stamp, you can, too!

Isn't that embossing folder the best? I just love the tropical-feel of this card.

Thanks for playing along with the Stamping 411.
