We can sit by the river while we heat up a tortilla, watch the Rio Grande go by real slow...

Just a quick simple card for you today, but it really makes me ready for summer! How about you? I've been working crazy hard on some stuff for publication, which I'll tell you about later, but I had to take a break cause my mojo did. Funny how that works, huh?

I was at Hobby Lobby last week and found this Wordsworth Vacation Collection set on clearance! The HORROR! Of course, I had to rescue it immediately. I took it home and immediately inked it up so it wouldn't feel unloved any longer.

I was aiming for the sweetness and simplicity that Anna always achieves...hopefully I did ok! I love the little extra *oomph* that the Liquid Appliqué adds on the edge of the sea. And of course, no card of mine is complete without ribbon! *wink*

Yesterday was hubby & my 6th wedding anniversary. I wish I had a wedding photo to share with you, but I don't have any digital ones. We haven't celebrated yet, since he had to work and I'm home with a kiddo with fever and a sink full of dirty dishes, but such is life! I hope you guys had a great weekend, and have a Happy Monday!

Stamps: Vacation Collection (Wordsworth)
Paper: Soft Sky, Watercolor, Basic Black, Papertrey White
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Making Memories Slot Punch, Corner Rounder, Aquapainter & Reinkers, Copic Spica Glitter Pen, Pop Dots, May Arts Ribbon, Liquid Applique, White Sakura Glaze Pen

this is awesome, Shannan! I'm bummed I passed up this set at my HL last year, thinking I'd probably not use it. LOVE the sea foam & water/beach line you did! Happy Anniversary!

Oh thank you for rescuing this. It's good to know there's one less unloved stamp set in the world. LOL. It is a great set and you did a great job with it. I think you got soft and simple with the colors and scallops.
