Bright Days......FMS255




No rain for us this past week in Virginia!  We had a wonderful week at the ocean just doing beachy things. It was off season so we seemed to have the whole beach to ourselves most of the time!  



Every night after dinner we would head back to the beach to catch ghost crabs that skittered everywhere along the edge of the water.  It was strictly a catch and release game but it was very competitive!  Here's Emma sprinkling a "magic potion"  along the sand hoping to lure those crabs out when the sun went down!





I am still having fun with post it notes and masking.  A pop of Daffodil Delight against Night of Navy sends a hopeful message using SU's set called Weather Together. Our talented Artisan Amy O'Neill has a wonderful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

This is one of my favorite color combos, navy & yellow! I love how the yellow just stands out on all the outline umbrellas, and the sweet heart…the piece de resistance! :)

Nice job with the masking. It looks like a lot of work with all those umbrellas! Now that I think about it, this card sort of reminds me of Morton salt!
