Wish I were by the Ocean.....and a Grand Opening!

Last week Darlene hosted Crafty Secret's Challenge to make a "Summer" card. So what better set than to use than their Seaside set. I stamped directly on the tag and then colored the image in with my Prismas and Gamsol. I distressed the edges using Old Paper ink. The paper is also by Crafty Secrets. I sanded that down to distress it a bit. I tied some cream colored floss around the end of the tag and added this little starfish to it.

If you live anywhere near Arlington Heights, IL stop by this weekend for Craft Fancy's GRAND OPENING!! There will be Make 'n Takes and demonstrations going on both days! This store is packed with all kinds of brand new products!!! I will be helping out on Sunday, so stop on by and say, "Hello!"

Well, wish me luck......I might be getting my van back today.....keeping my fingers crossed!!! I am so tired of feeling stranded!!! (Otherwise it is a looooooooong walk to ARlington Heights! LOL)

Oh No! Craft Fancy sounds dangerous! Wish I could stop by this weekend to meet you (I've been a "blog-lurker" for awhile). Next time I'm at my Mom's in Mt. Prospect, I will definitely be taking a detour to Craft Fancy!

Love your blog...thanks for the inspiration!

This card is awesome Michele!! I have been without a car for almost a year so I can totally relate. It's a horrible feeling being stranded. I hope you get your van back soon. :)
