I am trapped in the house with 4 wildly rowdy boys so I'm trying to get ahead of laundry, and stamping requirements. I look at my boys (who I know were given a hefty amount of smarts from their dad) and I see them doing the STUPIDEST things today -- youngest used an entire roll of blue tape to attempt to "lock" the others in the TV room. And this was with me IN the house. God knows what they would do left to their own devices. (Sigh) I'm assuming that they will grow out of this phase (soon please!)
Any-who, this is the July secret image for my monthly image challenge. It's called Sea Shell Jar and it's by Stampendous. It's super pretty; it certainly made me yearn for a vacation to the beach.
I don't know why but this image gave me a bit of trouble coloring. I think the sky should have been a bit more subtle. I tried twice to shade it and this is the best one! I've decided that I need to work on my sky skills more -- it prolly didn't help that I spilled my latte on it!! Damp images rarely make a good card; it definitely called for some creative cutting!!
I'm also entering my card in the Catch The Bug Photo challenge. If this isn't beachy, I don't know what is!
