A Chance To Stamp & A Trip To The Beach

I'm on vacation this week and finally got a chance to sit down and play with some of my new stamps. Here is a card I made with Natural Beauties.

I stamped the base color of the flowers in Winter Wisteria and the second layer with Royal Velvet.

I hand cut the large flower and attached it with my Dots. The panel is attached to the card base with foam tape. I hand cut the butterfly and added just a touch of glue to just the center and gently pulled the wings up.

We went to the coast on Monday with my parents to go on a jet boat trip. The trip starts where the Rogue River runs into the ocean. We went 40 miles up river. We saw some beautiful wildlife, had a great lunch, went on one heck of a white water ride and got very wet.

Here are a few pictures.

This is me and my mom playing in the very cold ocean.

This is Emma, the boat driver's dog. She shared her seat with nice of her. She goes on every trip with him. She slept just like this the whole trip. That's my dad's back she's behind.

This is my husband and our daughter at the beginning of the trip. Note how dry they are.

This is a little further into the trip. Note how wet she is.

This is my dad on the way back. We took the longer trip that went up into some of the white water. We got VERY wet.

The view from our seats. Oregon is so beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by today. Sorry if the post was a little picture heavy.
