Sea Shell Poster inspiration fro KSS Monday

Good Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful Summer weekend…. maybe a chance to get away to the beach, lake or relax by a pool…. maybe even a run through the sprinklers ;)?

Last Monday, I mentioned I was off to the beach for our family “day after the 4th of July” tradition. Even though it was a foggy day at the beach, we still had a wonderful time and came home taking half of the beach with us in our hair, towels, toys, etc. LOL!

Stamps for my beach inspired card: Multi-Step Sea Shells Clear Stamps, Multi-Step Aloha! Clear Stamps, Multi-Step Letters from the Past Clear Stamps, Big & Bold Swashes Clear Stamps and Vintage Words Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
