Here we are -- the last day of this month's Blog Hop.  I hope you have enjoyed what you have seen this week. Today's set, Silly Shells, has several shell images, a resting sailboat and some clever sentiments.  My first card is another CAS one, using one of the shell images and one of the sentiments.


My second card utilizes a photo I printed from the internet.  It is actually a free wallpaper download from Walt Disney World.  In addition to the sailboat and sentiment from Silly Shells, I stamped some birds from another MFP set, Scenic Selections.  This is one of the nice things I like about these MFP sets -- they are interchangeable.  I added a little bit of piercing, using a plastic canvas round template.



I hope you have gotten lots of ideas this week.  Be sure to check out the rest of the team members' blogs and comment for your chance to win a free stamp set.

Lois, I LOVE that white card. The shells are popping out of that framing. And, the second with the downloaded wallpaper is beautiful. I really like how you sponged around the boat.

Like the Clean & Simple (CAS) feel with the embossed inner border framing. Like the background image and the way the sailboat pops by cutting it with a circle nestie and layering. I like all things sea shell. Have a sea shell collection in my master bathroom. Wallpaper theme of master bathroom is beach/sand castles/sea shells.
