We're baaaaaaaack.......

 ....yes!  Ok, it's been one crazy week.  Finally got the taxes done on Friday, then left on Saturday for Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.  Our favorite place to stay is the Earthbox Motel & Spa.  The kids love it because it has an indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room, and sauna.  We love it because it's within walking distance of all the downtown shops and restaurants.  And after we returned, I realized how long it had been since I had posted anything!  Yikes! 
This fun card uses a set called Summer Splash from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog.  I can't wait to show you all the wonderful things inside that catalog!!!!  I embossed the fish, bubbles and shells, then brayered over them.  I used the SACC92 color challenge, the SASC92 sketch challenge, and the A & M 4.13 accessories challenge to make the card.  There were a few random spots of ink, so I added the punched sanddollar and shell.  And I actually like it better that way!  :-)  Love it when that happens!  The colors are Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and River Rock.  The greeting is from On Your Birthday, stamped on a large oval and cut in half. 
 So here are a few shots from this weekend.  This is my oldest man-child.  He thinks he's pretty cool because he's already 6 inches taller than his mama.  He's a pretty nice kid.
 Here's my middle man-child.  He loved sitting by the rocks and feeling the crazy waves splash up.  Too bad it was only about 50 degrees outside! 
 And this youngest man-child.  Need I say more?  I think you can tell plenty from the photo!
And here are my DH and I in front of Roche Harbor.  Yes, I am wearing my SU! sweater.  I love that thing!  And underneath is my cool Toby Mac Tshirt.  I'm so glad that it was such a beautiful day there.

Well, I guess that's it for now.  I'm working on a few more challenges, so hopefully I'll be back by tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station!  I'd love to hear from you.
