Stampin Friends - I'm wishing for Summer

Welcome this this month's Stampin Friends Blog Hop, it's a summer theme - my friends in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the sun, but I'm rugged up in my "trackie and Uggs" sat in front of a heater - the theme made we wish for warmer weather, and that got me thinking of the beach..... 

Now there was no way I was going to the beach when it was 10 degrees, so I started looking at holiday photos, and found a beautiful day at Port Norlunga, I decided to make a 12 x 12 for a photo frame, and later I can transfer it to my scrapbook pages.

My background is created using 3 of the designs from the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, I added Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread for a beachy rustic feel. I printed the memory from the day on vellum and cut into a Banner.

I carried the Banner theme into my card project using the scraps of the DSP, waste not, want not I say! And see the top of the card, that texture is created with the Subtle embossing folder, I am in LOVE! The sentiment is from Tropical Chic.
