Inspired By #172

I don't really need a retirement card.  At my age everyone I know is already retired.  But I still made a card for Inspired By.

I started with a piece of Bristol and stamped nearly all the sentiments from STAMPlorations Beach Vibes in light gray.  After inking with Distress Inks, I took a cue from the charms and added the Paper Smooches flip-flops, MFT glasses and greenery, all cut from scraps.

I have a number of other beach and summery cards that I plan to send to my homebound people in July.  I hope they get a kick out of them and that they will bring back happy memories.

I didn't make a retirement card either, Bobby. I like the direction you took with your beach theme! That's good for so many occasions. Love those mirrored shades!

This captures the essence of the inspiration photo, Bobby! Fun flip flops and sunglasses! I'm ready for the beach!

You've 'charmed' us again, Bobby!! Thanks for sharing one of your fun cards for those homebound folks - I'm so sure they love your cards, too!
Love the texture you've added to those sweet flip-flops - you know I'd wear them!
