FOSTV-Beach Theme



Good Monday Morning..can Mondays ever be good? Hmmmmm.....I think so if you had a bad weekend. No, no....I didn't. I went on a day trip out of town and went to one of my favorite scrapbook stores. The store really has the coolest and most up to date crafty items. You just can't leave without buying something, usually too much. You know, it really adds up in a hurry.

 Friends of Speedy TV is going with a beach theme this week. Instead of just a card, I thought I would make a box and some 3 x 3 note cards just for sending out a quick thank you or just to say hi. This project was made with  three of Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. sets. They are Silly Shells, Flamingos on Vacation, and Oh, Crab.

My box is made using a Sizzix Box with Scallop Flap and Flowers/Scoreboards Die. The lid is covered with paper from a DCWV Textured cardstock Travel Stack. The cardstocks are from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, Aqua Lt., Florida Peach, and Wind Willow. The button is La Mode from Jo Ann Stores.

We hope you'll play along with us this week. We have a great stamp set to be won this week called Background Fun. Wish I could win it as I don't have it..but, I can't. :-)

This is a fun set of 3x3 cards. The holder is amazing! I love the scallop flap! Thanks for the tip on the photo. The original size is just right. I don't know why I never clicked on that one.

I could agree with so much of your post
Mondays - rarely good unless your on holiday
Craft store visits - too many £s
This weeks set up to win - yes I would be happy to win that one too!

I love your little set of cards - really cute and very useful.
