FOSTV-Vacation


HOT is the word! I think so many of us are baking in this heat. But, as I write this post, it is raining and we had a good rain on Friday. We were so HOT and DRY. So, things are looking up.

The challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is to make a vacation themed card. The beach seems perfect for a vacation so I used my stamp set, Flamingos on Vacation from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co.

Hope you'll join us this week. I'm posting the stamp set being given away to some lucky winner.


Recipe:
Stamps-MFP Flamingos on Vacation
Paper-MFP aqua light 100 lb. premium cover cardstock
Ink- Memento Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics, Fiskars Boundary Waters punch, Flower Soft Sand, Cloud 9 Design Chocolate Chalet gems
