Now on this card you probably think it is strange to have a chair setting in the water! But this scene took me back to the days of fishing and camping, I always put my chair right in the water, if my feet are cool then I don't get so hot on those warm sunny days!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations, they are gorgeous!! Hope you enjoyed this release as much as I did playing with these sets!!

Both your cards are lovely but I especially love the one with the tide coming in and lapping at the chair. Very creative.

Wow Girlfriend! You will have to give us another tut on how to do this gorgeous backdrop!!
I would sell my first-born child for the ability to do what you did!

Both of these cards are fabulous! Your coloring is beautiful, and these stamps are like what you could only get in rubber until MFP. Please do a tutorial on how to make the water look so realistic!
