Great illustration, it looks very cool as a cut-out card in the photo.

(enjoyed hearing the song too--haven't heard that in years)

This kinda reminds me of Oak Bluffs. Very cute! Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

My dream is to live in a cottage by the sea, just like this one! And you even have my favorite tuxedo kitty waiting for me. How perfect is that! I'm glad you chose this song too. I wanted to use it but it didn't fit with my image. I'm always glad I stopped by!

NANCY LEFKO said...

Val, just perfect !!! It suits my beach-mood so well....I'm still living off my vacation memories !

Bella Sinclair said...

You know, I saw this and oohed and aaahed and admired all the colors and shapes and little kitty. But then I saw that it was a CARD, and not just any card, but a die cut card. I just about fell over from the cleverness! Fantastic stuff!

Gillian said...

Oh this is so evocative and charming. One of life's greatest pleasures is to find 'treasure' on the seashore and take it home. What perfect music too!

Ahhh cool, dood! A die-cut piece..I love those. I think it's been so so long that I've done one myself, I forgot how to set one up to produce for die cut!!
Very nice, and great quote from Emerson...I like that one a lot.

I miss ya DOOD!!
I recently got back from that cross country trip, month long trip with my brother and family. What fun...great to see all the different people in our little chunk of land here in the US. Such a variety, and very inspiring...
