Good morning friends ~ Are you enjoying the hot days of summer? I'm a summer girl and summers are short here on the east coast. One of my favorite places to go on a hot summer day is to the ocean. I can sit on the beach all day long, dipping in the cold ocean water to cool off and then back to baking on the beach. Sadly, I have not been to the beach yet this year. I don't think it would be so much fun breathing into a mask in the hot summer sun, not to mention the odd tan lines. ;0) Anyway, there's a new challenge starting over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and the theme is "Ocean / Beach" so this is one way I can get my beach fix.
Are you tired of seeing me use these cute dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs yet?
I'm sorry. I just can't resist this Octopus when he puts on his sailor's hat. With all those arms, that equals 8 times the hugs!
He's holding on tight to the life preserver from the Whale Die set.
I framed him using Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles. I can't get enough of all the fun things that come in these ocean themed sets from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Now it's YOUR turn to play along. You can find all the details at The Sisterhood of Crafters or by clicking here. We look forward to seeing what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!

Adorable card, Birgit! Who could get tired of these!? Not ME! We are a beach-loving family as well and it's difficult to think about how long it could be before we would be able to return. But my craft room helps!! Have a great rest of your week.ReplyDelete

Sorry about not getting to the beach, we are missing out family reunion this year and not going on a vacation, it is so sad to know we will just miss out on the fun this summer, next summer will be very special won't it!
Ahoy there Birgit, I guess in your part of the world you can enjoy the water and ocean, let's hope the beach will be able to be accessed in the summer, we have a pool, so I will say Ahoy there ...xxxReplyDelete
