Sailing Home With Friends Are Like Seashells

Sailing home with friends are like seashells

Spring arrives early on Florida's Gulf Coast where I grew up. By February's end we were back at the beach frolicking in the water and gathering sea shells. This, to me, is what spring is all about. And, when you grow up by the sea, you always are drawn to it. Those living where I grew up would recognize this as a spring card because of the season's early arrival there. Both the white cardstock and the patterned paper were embossed using the Seabed folder. Then, I combined two stamp and die sets along with two shades of blue to create the beachy scene. Oh, to again spend spring on Pass-A-Grille Beach (part of St. Pete Beach), recently named the best beach in the USA.
