Near the sea - Always Fun Challenges #64

Monday June 25, 2018
Welcome to another fun challenge at
Our theme is FUN AT THE BEACH
 I am such a water person.. I don't know if it's because I was born and raised in Washington state and on the west side where the water is.. (vs. eastern WA. where its dry, hot and only lakes)  To me at this ripe old age fun at the beach is just to sit and watch the waves, seagulls, people, reflections and other sea life. It really warms my soul to see the water. We live about an hour to the sound and it's only because of the winding roads. If it was a straight shot it would be shorter.  Well for my card I stamped the sentiment by Santa Rosa PSX.. I then used my ground and cloud template and Ranger ink. Then using copics I sketched in the water.  The sentiment had a few seagulls included but I used Simon Says seagulls and added a few more to the sky.  This is my happy place..
