Congrats

Here is a card I made just because, no reason just playing around. I love this color combo and have been wanting to make a card using it. I got the great tan paper a while ago and haven't really used it to much but now watch out, I love it!
Stamps- background by Great Impressions, word and oval by MSE (My Sentiments Exactly)
Ink- white Brilliance, latte and denim Adirondack, VersaMark
Plus- chocolate embossing powder by Stampendous, circle stickers by Stampendous, glitter glue, satin ribbon, scallop scissors

On Sunday my daughter and I went whale watching with our Girl Scout troop. It was only the girls who are working on their Gold Award (it's like the Boy Scout Eagle Award). The weather was great and luckily it didn't rain so we were able to go out to whale watching, go on the tide pool walk and pick up trash on the beach. Boy did we put a lot into our day, we left at 6:30 am and got home at 6:00 pm. Everyone had a great time.

The picture below is of a World War II fighter ship. The captain of our boat told us to take a picture because we will probably never see another that is sailing, so I did.
Here Melanie and I are while on the tide pool walk.


Isn't this a beautiful picture of the lighthouse! I didn't know it looked so good until I got it on the computer. This was take while sailing out to the ocean.

The lighthouse photo is remarkable, great photography on your part. It's funny how we don't know how good a picture really is until we post it. Lovely. Pat

Jamie, That light house picture is beautiful. Would it distort it if you took it somewhere and have a larger print made, so you could mat and frame it. The card is so nice, I like those color combos too, but am afraid of them looking to drab. You proved it was possible.

What gorgeous photos! I have always wanted to go whale watching. I miss Girl Scouts. i used to be a Brownie leader, and when my daughter bridges to Juniors, she did not want to do it.
Love the card and colors above too!
