Nature’s Beauty


Before we get to nature’s beauty,  I want to show you something I worked on Saturday.  My oldest son is getting married in June.  It was requested that I make the Bridal Shower Invitations.   I agreed to do it but I  thought long and hard about what to create.  You see their theme is a beachy theme.  So to me, the standard umbrella invitation doesn’t fit.   This is what I ended up with.




Do you recognize the stamp set?   It is So Many Shells which is retiring and By the Tide long since retired.  I used the Seaside Embossing Folder.  I would love to hear your thoughts.


As you can see from the first photo and the title, I was thinking about nature.  I go out to a lovely park every evening and do 3 miles.  We have several lakes that I see as I walk around it. One of our frequent visitors is the herons.  So when I saw Lilypad Lake stamp set in the new catalog, I had to have it.  I colored the heron with gray and touch of blue.  Just like you see in nature.  So come take a stroll on the steps to make this card. Then request the catalog today so you can order this stamp set and many others. Click here for requesting the new catalog  and you will receive some special goodies in your package.

By the way, notice that it has no greeting.  I thought long and hard about it, but my walking partner said let the inside say what you want to say.  So this card will be perfect for thank you, get well, thinking of you, or birthday.  There is one more I would use for and that is Mother’s Day.  It is coming up so if you are one of the lucky ones that somehow manage to get your hands on it use it.
