There is a sign in my bathroom on the wall that says “Heaven is a little bit closer in a home by the water”. It is true. There is something calming and serene about looking out on the water and watching the waves, the wildlife, the boats go by and the view. I could sit and stare out the window (or from my deck) all day and get nothing done. Don’t tell Rob but sometimes I do spend a day doing just that. It has a way of making all your worries go away.
Lilypad Lake is a sweet and calming stamp set. It has a bird in it. I think it is an Egret but Lynette (a friend and club member) thinks it is a Blue Heron. To keep the peace, we have decided to agree that if it is colored blue then it must be a Blue Heron but if it is left white it is an Egret. Don’t go looking for any blue Egrets on my cards! In any case, it also has other images plus matching dies called Lakeside Framelits (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle). There are a couple of label dies and a fun die that cuts out water.
The rest of the sentiment is inside the card and says “Going there is another”. I love that!
The colors I used for this card are Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point (all for the water), Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove.
