A Day at The Beach~SS19

Happy Sunday!  It's time for another Sisterhood Sunday Challenge!

 Our challenges are now monthly, so you have lots of time to play along. There are two ways you could win an awesome Rubbernecker stamp set of your choice. To find out how to play and see how to win.....just pop over to the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog. 

 Jacquie has provided a gorgeous inspiration photo for the month of July.

I was tickled to see that Jacquie had chosen a beach scene!  I love to have scene cards on hand for when I need a masculine card!!!  I created my scene by sponging Memento Summer Sky on the entire piece of Xpress Blend it card stock, then masking the sky off with a post it note so I could create the water. I sponged Memento Bahama Blue and added some water ripples. Kittie Kits Cause a Scene Sets are so versatile. The scenes you can create are endless!!  The Cattail Set SKU: 650-14 was the perfect compliment to my little beach scene.

Don't forget to check and see what inspiring projects my Sisters have created for your viewing enjoyment!! There is links to their blogs in the right bar of this blog. Sure hope you get the chance to play along with us.  We would love to see what you come up with!!

Big Stampin' Hugs!!
