Waterfront Sites!

Hello Everyone!

Mr. Hubster and I used to go camping, every Summer at Miles Standish State Forest for 10 years! The first 5 years were in a tent, then we bought a used Winnebago and considered it a tent off the ground. Our 2 kids preferred the tent, so we’d pitch the tent next to the camper. They would also bring friends and we would alternate the tent for girls only, to boys only! The other one would sleep in the camper with us!

Today’s card reminds me of our camping days…

 

Here is my Card!

Living here in NC now, we are surrounded by Pine trees. The Pine Trees here are called Long Leaf Pines…they are gorgeous, but those lone pine ‘leaves’? A tedious chore to rake. I now use my leaf blower and I blow them all under the pines. The people here called it “Pine Hay”! It can be used for mulching your gardens! Natural mulch with no chemicals…I like that!

 

Here is the inside of the Card!

I kept this clean and easy! Plenty of space to write that personal note!

 

Stock and Measures:

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick-card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Whisper White Regular-front panel, watercolored, 3.75″ x 5″

Mango Medley-mat under front panel, 4″ x 5.25″

Stamp Set:

Watercolor-all stamping

Inks:

Coastal Cabana-water, light

Bermuda Bay-water, dark

Balmy Blue-sky

Sahara Sand-light mountains

Soft Suede-dark mountains

Old Olive-land line

Mossy Meadow-trees on front and inside

Early Espresso-greeting, inside sentiment

Tools:

Aqua Painter-filled with rubbing alcohol

I like to use alcohol over water…it dries faster, the card curl is minimal, and I like it better than water, because it dries quickly! With water in the Aqua Painter, you must use Watercolor Paper. With alcohol, I just use my regular Whisper White Cardstock.

 

Here is the Card again!

I am happy this was carried over into the NEW CATALOG! This is a great Stamp Set to use for Masculine Cards too! This particular Card is going to my BFF, who is always there for me…I consider myself Blessed that the Lord put her in my Life!

Until the next Post…Many Blessings to you ALL!
