Thanks to Lynne

My friend Lynne gave me the cutest salt and pepper shakers the other I made her a card. She love blue, and is from New England, so I thought this combo would be great for her.

   I used a layout, an inspiration pic, and also entered this card in lots of challenges. The list follows this pictorial display.

I used my stash of CTMH once again. The ribbon, the sunflower yellow B&T paper, and the cardstock, as well as the cloud stencil are all CTMH.

The Hibiscus paper is Michael's. I used the blade from my blender to make the black frame for the pic, which I cut with my good 'ol coluzzle which I bought through SU! years ago. Am I the only one who doesn't own any nestabilities yet?

I always seem to distress different here. I used Walnut Ink Distress Ink from Ranger. I also used the blade of my scissors. The eyelets are from SU!

I did some paper piecing with the script paper and the gingham, as well as with some Clover Meadow CS from, you guessed it, CTMH. Isn't she cute? I used Prismacolor Markers to color the water and beach, and chalked the sky.

The lighthouse is also paper pieced...these stamps are from Crafty Secrets.

Here is the list of challenges I am entering this card into:

ATC's with Attitude - Anything Goes
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Summertime
Craftpunked - Summertime
Crafty Ann's - Paper Piecing

I hope Lynne likes her's hard to part with my "babies"!
