StampNation Beach Vacation Blog Hop



Hi everyone!  Today we are kicking off the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event with a Blog Hop. Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty friends, are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge, "Beach Style", as well as a peek at our favorite projects from the event!

Here's my card for the first challenge:


I used the fun Joy Ride die from My Favorite Things to create my yellow car.  Love all the little details with this die.  The back seat is filled with items for the beach, beach ball, flip flops, sunscreen, towel, book, etc...  Is this what your car looks like when you head for the beach?  The "sand" is a piece of cork cut out using the Stitched Borders 1 Dies from Pretty Pink Posh.

Prizes!!!!
