Addicted to CAS Challenge #115

Hi all...it’s time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS


Our Sponsor is Create a Smile Stamps
Our Hostess is Ceal and she has chosen the Code Word Summer.


I was in the mood for a beach day, and really wanted to create a gentle beach scene, so I watercolored the sand and water with DI's and added a few seagulls. An anchor for a nautical element and that was it ~

We have a new Teammate at ATCAS ~ Kelli Acopan, and we are introducing her today. Stop by and say hello, if you have a chance. You won't be disappointed :)

I would also like to add this card to my dear friend Virginia’s Summer Blog Party 



Wishing you a lovely weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hi Barb!! Ok, I had to come check out your entry too. :) I love how relaxed this card makes me feel. It's a beautiful scene. One I can get used to, that's for sure!! I just realized that I'm already a follower of yours, but I've never gotten a notification for any of your posts.... I even searched my emails. So I just signed up to follow by email, now hopefully I'll start seeing your new posts. Have a great weekend ~
