Happy Father's Day -A sneak peek!

ODBD stamps, Waves on the Sea, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello friends! Did you think I vanished?  Lol!  Well, I have been busy working in the yard and then I spent the weekend visiting our daughter and grandkids.  Our Granddaughter turned 12 today, and we celebrated last weekend.  We had so much fun having a "girl's day out"!  She had decided she wanted to go shopping with her birthday money, have lunch, and get our nails done as part of her celebration.  Well.... to make a long story short... we did shop, went for lunch and a coffee, but instead of getting our nails done, she fell in love with the hermit crabs they had in the mall, and we came home with an aquarium, all the fixings, and two hermit crabs.  I have to say, she will get many more hours of fun from watching those crabs!  I joked though and said that instead of coming home with pretty nails, we came home with claws!  LOL

Anyway... today I do have a sneak peek for you!  This is a peek at a set called Waves on the Sea, to be released by Our Daily Bread designs May 1, and I'm loving it!  I stamped with Memento, colored with Copics, and I added touches of white gel pen for waves and reflections.  I matted with black and blue.  The only embellishments are the two brads holding the sentiment panel, which is a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag die.

I was also excited to find that ODBD is going to be offering these fabby "Stamped By" minis!  There are a bunch of cute images and fonts to put your personalized touch to the back of any card!  This one is Chickadee Stamped By and it's one of my faves!  These too will be available May 1!

 
 I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Will be back with more fun soon!
Blessings,
