Wishing!!

Wishing to be cavorting on the Islands in comfy clothes or a bathing suit and my toes "squishing" the sand! Yes... I am definitely a beach/water baby!! This WMS set My Island just makes me happy!!


Tried to give it a soft, faded feel....a little vintage postcard.

Here's the sketch I used... WMS weekly sketch challenge, designed by Belinda Chang Langner from the WMS DT.... you have until Friday at noon. And... there is a prize... one entry is picked randomly... the prize... a WMS stamp of your choice...SO MANY to chose from...the rules on are on the link above.

Belinda's sketch...


Even added a little inspiration pic.... for my red/pink sunset!! I was dreaming about Hawaii and gorgeous sunsets... what can I say!!









Had to laugh/chuckle... my blogging friend Marisa made an adorable tag card last week, the 25th, and I commented about tags on cards not being easy for me... and then, the WMS sketch was posted on Saturday with a tag... dang!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Vickie, you made this one look easy - no sweat! Love the tropical theme - can't go wrong with the Authentique paper and stamping the palms on it - brilliant! Love the kraft and the twine accents!
