Waterfront & Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Yesterday & today is not the best of days. 
Showery & clouds are in the forecast for most of our weekend.
This morning Shawn went for blood work and after that I am not sure what will be on the agenda.
It may end up being a lazy Saturday or maybe we'll go out and do some thrift shopping.

Yesterday I did sit a bit and created a card with the Tuesday Morning Sketches!
I have not participated in their challenges in awhile and I really need to get back at it because they have some amazing sketches!

Here is this week's sketch and my card....

This card was SO much fun to make!
Thanks Tuesday Morning Sketches for the perfect sketch! 

This card will be headed to Bradenton, Florida to a special guy that is just like son #2 to us.
Tim lived in Florida a couple years ago then moved to Indiana and is now back in Florida which he fell in love with the way of life there. He loves to go boating & fishing. He was married on the beach there so that is why I made a beachy style of card for him. His birthday is coming up in about 2 weeks so I was happy to get this made early and get it in the mail soon.

Card Details:

Stamps: Waterfront, We Must Celebrate (retired), Special Celebrations (inside)
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue
Cardstock: Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Tutti Fruitti DSP (retired)
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Crumb Cake Ribbon, Glue Dots, Banner Punch (retired), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I really love the Waterfront stamp set!
It can create many different scenes from the mountains to the ocean! 
I love it!

My thoughts today....

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & make it a great day!

LOL, Wendy, it's almost 11 am and I am still in my pj's! I know what you mean about a lazy Saturday, yikes! This card is a nice dream for today, right?! Tropical sun and breezes...none of those around here! I love what you did with this set, it's so versatile! Enjoy your day whatever you do with it!

This is such a perfect card for your friend who lives in FL! I love those diagonal stripes and especially that cool ribbon! They add just the perfect touch of masculinity to this fun birthday card! I hope your day went well - mine was relatively quiet but I got a lot done today!

I could make beachy cards from morning until night... I love them but alas, I don't have much need for them so I hold off. These are extra special and I just know they will be greatly appreciated. One of my favorite SU sets.
