Happy Thursday!  Hope you are having a great week.  We’re continuing to enjoy nice weather in Georgia, and fortunately, aren’t experiencing any of the severe weather that seems to be playing havoc on other parts of the country.  Let’s pray that the weather patterns will soon shift so there will be calmer days ahead for everyone.
As mentioned earlier, “By the Tide” is rapidly becoming a favorite stamp set.  A friend’s birthday is soon and I decided the stamp set would make a great card for him.  Since he enjoys dining on lobster and spending time at the beach, the
stamp set allowed me to design a card incorporating a bit of both.

Like myself, Darien enjoys using the “By the Tide” stamp set and created this beautiful card.

Preparing for a holiday themed convention swap, Sharon prepared this beautiful card sample.  She’ll be making twenty+ to share with fellow stampers!  On the two evergreen silhouettes, she stamped with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad and then re-stamped the image with Illuminate Glitter Watermark Stampin’ Pad.  It provides a nice shimmer but it does not show in the photo.
