wishing you were here!

good morning!!
the temperatures are finally starting to cool down here...i'm talking 80 degrees and below people. don't get too excited for me. ha ha! but even that is better than 90, 100 or 100 plus degrees, so i'll take it! :)

today i have a card on the Newton's Nook blog!! and i'm SUPER excited to share it! i LOVE how it turned out!! :)
i used three NND sets for this card!! :)

yay!! love it? i hope so!! i turned the little snowmen from Flaky Family into sandmen at the beach! it seemed only fitting since it's always HOT here in SC (did i mention that before...?) and we live so close to the beach! :) i also used the sandcastle from the summer set Newton's Summer Vacation!! LOVE!

I stamped the images onto patterned paper, and then added shading with copic markers. th snowmen are popped up with foam tale, and i added a little...i don't know, mast (?) to the castle with stars to represent some lights, or a tree...something else christmas-y! :)

and then, for the background, i used the awesome wave stencil and transluscent embossing paste colored with tumbled glass distress ink! :) the base of the card was sprayed with mist to sparkle, too! 
the sentiment was created by mixing one from Newton's Summer Vacation and part of a sentiment from Winston's Home for Christmas! :)

thanks for stopping by! and make sure you head over to the Newton's Nook blog for lots of extra information!
