Sue sells sea shells....

...by the sea shore! Remember those tongue twisters??!! (AND I had to retype this THREE times, so finger twisters too I guess, rofl!) Well, everytime I pick up Melanie's newest set Gifts From the Sea from Gina K Designs it runs through my head! LOL! I know, I'm a tad on the strange side, lol. Here is a card I showed on preview night, but lots missed I think..and of how I did this one:


The waves were made by tearing the cardstock and sponging the edges with white ink...doesnt show much here though. And also, the part with the seashell row is an overlay I did, stamped on clear cardstock with some stayz-on ink...I always Love how thst looks! Added a charm from my stash too!

Well, we have some blog hops coming up next week for Gina K...the card kit hop and the Illustrator/Design Team Challenge hop...and its a fun one this time! Remember, thats the one you can participate in and the winner is next months CSS DT!!! More on that next week for sure! Have a wonderful weekend!! And I hope all of the bad storms stay away from us! Yucky right now, under a tornado watch! bleh!!

This is so gorgeous Cat! I love it when you use string on your cards - it always looks perfect, not like when I try it - lol! ~chris
