The images I used are "By the Sea" and " Gifts from the Sea" by GINA K. DESIGNS. Colored with Copic's and card stock pure luxury 120lb by GKD.



You will want to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (January 17), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
The next stop ON THE HOP is the ever so talented JOY If you came here without stopping, you can start at STAMP TV.
