RRCB92 At the Beach

Hi everyone!  Wow, can you believe it's the last day of July!  Wowza!  The summer is flying by!It's time for another Retro Rubber Challenge and we have a beachy-themed one!  This will keep summer going a wee bit longer!   I always love beachy challenges!!!

Image may contain: ocean and text

I got this stamp a couple of years ago at a stamp show; it's from Technique Junkies and it's called Besties!  I just love it because it reminds me of me and my sisters, swimming in the ocean at the Delaware beaches we so love!

I stamped the image on some Whisper White cardstock using Soft Sky ink, then mounted it on a panel of Crumb Cake.  The DSP was loose in my stash but I think it is from a My Mind's Eye pad but I don't remember the name.  On it I stamped some beachy images of seashells and starfish but my image covers up most of them!  Too bad because they are very pretty.  Anyway, it creates a subtle background:

My sentiment is from an Artistic Outpost set called The is probably from at least 2010.  I mounted it on a piece of burlap ribbon and put the whole shebang on a Soft Sky card!

I hope you'll play along with our challenge and give your older stamps some love!  Remember, they have to be at least a year old and you need to give us the age of them (appromixately!!).  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

While on vacation, Cassidy got a "pretend" tattoo of a dolphin jumping out of the waves:

Big bad Wayne had to show off his big bad eagle tattoo as well....he's such a faker!  And can you guess which football team is his favorite, LOL!?

Thanks for popping in!

The Queen of nostalgic vintage strikes again! This is just perfect, from the soft shells in the background to the touches of texture in the burlap. Sigh.... So beautiful!

This card is so pretty! Love the soft colors and the stamped image is very cute! Perfect card for sisters. I have to ask - was Cassidy's tattoo made from henna? Sure looks like it to me.
