If you are ever in Myrtle Beach...


...you have to go to a nice stamp store called Artful Legacy. My parents stay in a cute place in Surfside Beach for a couple of months in the winter, and this store is literally a mile away from where they stay. The only stamp store within possibly a hundred miles, and it is that close!! Crazy, I say!! CRAZY!! They make their own stamps, but they have a ton of great tools, papers, and embellishments. In fact, I bought my first Flower Soft there. I can't wait to start playing with it!

In honor of my recent beach trip with Meredith to see my parents, I thought I would post a "beachy" card! Unfortunately, it was really cold, and we never actually set foot on the beach; however, Meredith was able to go swimming every day in the pool at the development where Mimi and Grandpa Don stay. That's all a kid needs!

The card is mainly one layer. I used a cloud template from Rosie's Roadshow, and I used Cool Caribbean ink to sponge it. The sun is cut with a nesties template, and it is Summer Sun. Finally, the "water" is Baja Breeze that has Pacific Point sponged on the edges. The lovely lady is colored with copics and spicas, and the sentiment is the priceless part. It goes, "Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever!" Ain't that the truth. I believe that the stamps are from Viva Las Vegas stamps, but I'm not positive. I hope the sunny card and mention of the beach will fill you all with happy, warm thoughts! (cause I'm freezing my Southern butt off here!)
