Friends of Speedy TV Challenge #25

Are you all ready for a new FOSTV challenge today??
 Hope your weekend was a good one. I was trying to
 get my gardens all ready for the higher temps. Summer 
is really here now its going to be at least 113 for the week.
 Our theme this week is a most appropriate one...summer.
  One of the new sets from 
 Where better  place to be in the summer than at the beach!
 After water coloring this image I stitched onto the blue, trying
 to keep it light and beachy in color. A piece of a potato
 bag made a good net with a little float tied on. 
 While my daughter was living on a island in Puget Sound
my grandson and I picked up these tiny shells on the 
beach. Made the card a extra special because 
we made great memories hunting the beaches for treasures! 
So glad you stopped by to visit.

 The Lighthouses Set is the prize for the winner of this weeks challenge.
Come join in the may be the winner!

Looks like we have the same idea about stamps that we used. I almost placed small shells collected on Captiva Island on my card but forgot to...had them out to use. Love your card!!

WOW! This is simply beautiful Davi! LOVE that image and also really like the way you did the "netting" with the potato bag! Your card makes this image look so real and makes me long for the coast!
So pretty.
