Hit the Beach

Hit the Beach

Tomorrow I’m heading to one of our local Assisted Living Facilities to do crafts with the residents. I’m really looking forward to it! They wanted a beach theme, so here’s the card I designed.

Weather Together, Swirly Scribbles

I paired the umbrella from the Weather Together Bundle with the Swirly Scribbles framelits and some torn paper to create a beach scene. For tomorrow’s card, we’ll be using the clouds from the Weather Together Bundle, but this one uses the bigger clouds from the Tree Builder Punch.

I remembered today that they also wanted a bookmark, so I designed this to coordinate with the card. Can’t you just smell the sea air?

Swirly Bird, Stampin' Up!

The bookmark uses paper I got from Lois, the facility’s activities coordinator. Still, the two papers show the difference between the water and sky. I stamped the boat from Swirly Bird using Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe ink. The sun on the bookmark is a 3/4″ Daffodil Delight circle, and the ribbon is retired Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon. It just seemed so bright and cheery, I had to use it.

Speaking of bright and cheery – while we’ve had lots of kale, broccoli, zucchini, and cucumbers from our garden, our hundreds of tomatoes have taken their sweet time turning red. Finally, today, I found two that were close to red, so I had to pick them. Yum! I made a salad for lunch using our tomatoes and cucumbers, a little scallion, avocado and tuna. The dressing was balsamic vinegar with a splash of olive oil and some sweetener, and salt and pepper, of course. So good! I love being able to go to the backyard and pick our food. I meant to take a photo of the tomatoes, but I was too excited and cut into them before I thought.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!

    Wow – I just love your projects, Buffy! The card is my favourite – all the torn paper layers, and the Swirly Scribbles sun – just terrific! The residents will love putting these together 🙂
