Summer Lovin'

is the word for Friday with 365 Cards day 87!

Now if I close my eyes on this one...
I can hear waves crashing on the rocks mixed with squawking seagulls flying overhead, and in the far off distance a foghorn from a passing ship.  Smell the tang of seaweed spiced with pungent fish.  Taste the salty bitter ocean on my lips and feel the spray of the waves on the wind as it hits my face ....
And mean while my hair is going everywhere it is NOT meant to be! This memory would be the day my husband proposed to me, in the middle of summer, at Kiama Blow Hole, NSW, OZ.

Summer Lovin It Is!
So what better excuse do I need to make a card for my darling Mother In Law who has just fallen in love, and I think she has really found a keeper this time too!

 I had two color choices for this one, white or blue to represent the wind and I was not feeling 'blue'.  And I am not sure on this card if I have pulled of a 'white on white' as I have the red (have also NEVER pulled one of them off before so I just don't know if I have or not lol).  The gorgeous love tree if from Sew Many Challenges and was the Freebie for Friday (you can get it from HERE but be quick as it is only a limited time one)  and I knew it would go perfectly with this theme and I have been dying to use it since I snagged it.  The sentiment is another from Gingers House.

The image is colored with my Copics and my Promarkers (I have an even stash of both now so witch do I continue to expand??? *delima*)  And I thought I should try stepping out of my comfort zone again and this time with a clean and simple look.  I think I pulled that one though *Woo Hoo*

Wonder what my mind shall think of for LIGHT next ?
Anyway, I am off to sleep on that one :))
Night all.

I think the red and white go perfectly together and you pulled it off nicely.

Hi Leesa, sorry it's been a while! I love the white on white effect, must have a go myself instead of just admiring everyone else's! The red is the perfect compliment for it. Hugs xx
