Feel the Sand Between Your Toes

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you enjoying your summer? I have a darling summer scene that I created after my sister sent me a picture of her and her daughter, Annie in matching swimsuits from their vacation at Stone Harbor. I just had to re-create the darling photos.This is Emma with Starfish from Paper Nest Dolls. I sized one at 4" for my sister, Lauren and one at 3.5" for Annie and placed them as close as I could for printing. I love how it turned out with their darling toes in the sand and the summer sentiments.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you gone on vacation this summer? Where?
A: Me? No... sadly, I have no money and am on unemployment because of COVID but I can live vicariously through my sister.

  1. No vacation this year.
    I love your card and the way you incorporated the image to resemble the photo.

  2. Gorgeous card with great coloring. Love the matching photos.
    No vacation for us this year due to health issues of my husband + Corona.

  3. SO CUTE that you two wear the same bathing suit. Really sweet. We haven't gone on a trip...yet. We were supposed to go all around Poland, and to Berlin. But they are closed off to anyone not from the EU. And we were supposed to go to Tennessee an N. Carolina to check them out so we will know if we want to move to one (CA is even worse these days, so we can't stand it!). But they are not normal, so we want to wait until they are more normal so we will be able to tell if we like the lifestyle there. Soooo. we are hoping to go on a driving/camping trip up to the prettiest spots of Oregon. I need to get away. Need.

  4. Your sis and her daughter are so cute in their matching suits! Darling card too!
    No vacations here! Wishing for a trip to Disneyland to celebrate their 65th magical year, but not doing it this year!

  5. Cute card and love the matching swim suits. No vacation here. We took a day trip to a Lakeside retreat but no plans for a vacation.

  6. No trip for me either. Lovely card idea.

  7. Darling card and love how it mimics your sister & niece. I love both bathing suit sets. ;-) No vacation here either. We're doing exactly what we're supposed to be doing due to the virus.

  8. Gorgeous card!

  16. Well, this couldn't be more adorable and your sister and her daughter are the cutest couple!! Such a cool idea for a card and your so clever being able to resize the images (I wouldn't even know where to start....). Your colouring as always is spectacular and just love all the roughness you created for the sand. So sorry this is such a late comment and you know we always love seeing you at TIME OUT!
