Simple Sea Scene


Welcome
I have been MIA as life, and family events, have taken precedence to blogging these past few days.


This card was quite simple to make - the paper is a trimming from one I downloaded and printed from TLC Creations called Dad's Honey Do Paper.


The image is from Digital Two for Tuesday,  coloured with chalks.


The sentiment is embossed with a dark blue embossing powder, and the stamp is from Hero Arts.

A somewhat CAS card but I am happy with it.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - any comments you may leave are very much appreciated
May your day be blessed

I can see why you're "happy with it". I'd be more than happy, it's DELIGHTFUL! It takes me back to a much simpler time. That little boy just looks so sweet, peaceful and perfectly dapper sitting there holding that stick (or is it a flute)? I just LOVE this! Very simple but super vintage and cool. I absolutely ADORE this! Great job, Maxine, and thanks SO MUCH for sharing it in our challenge this week. We've had a blessed week, and I'm so glad that YOU are here to celebrate with us this week. I praise God for you, and I thank you for stopping by again to support us. Your art is always a treat, and your fellowship means more than you possibly know. May God bless you for your support, and happy scrapping as you continue to create!
Have a super blessed week, my dear friend.

Your card evokes warm and happy feelings for me when I look at it. It's such a simple but effective design. I can't believe you colored that with chalks. I always think of chalks as messy - but this looks professionally done. Thanks for joining us this week at ATS&M.
