Still Missing the Beach...

Really, you would think I would be over it by now, but I wanna be back at the peaceful beach!
I couldn't resist playing along with some "beachy" themes and accessories to reminisce on our sweet vacation time.  The super images are from Deedee's Digis, and guess what?  Deedee has a Dollar Digi section now!  That is totally awesome, and if you wanna know why, well here is the scoop:  You see, for just a dollar, you get a digi image that you can resize, print, and color as many times as you want.  Now, most of us are guilty for buying the stamps in the dollar bin where we are stuck to the small size the stamp is.  But with these, you can make them as BIG or little as you wish!

Head on over to the Deedees Digi's Craft Blog to see more ideas with today's stamp and play along with this week's sketch challenge!
My next card once again uses a Deedee's Digi's image - and it's one of my faves - The Flops!  Over at Christian Paper Crafts, today's Color Monday challenge is Royal Blue and white.  Being a Kentucky girl, those colors tend to come naturally, so here is what I can up with:

Over at Kaboodle Doodles, they are having a luau and you should totally go check it out!  Both of my cards fit the theme!  I hope you are having a Blessed Monday!

God Bless You,


  1. Well you definitely brought a bit of the beach to your blog today, Mary! The pastels and lace on your shells card have me thinking "sea breeze" and the colors and cork on your second have me thinking "sand between my toes." I, too, love the ocean (if you couldn't tell -- LOL!) I'm sorry that you are missing your vacation, but so happy that you have such wonderful memories of that time to sustain you during this period of hard work! Hugs, Deedee
