Sandy Beaches

Hello and happy Friday folks. The Stampendous team are spending some time at the beach with House-Mouse Designs® and friends. 

I have two catalog cards to share with you today, and both lead me to realize I didn't know a lot about the beach. I don't know my beach birds and second I don't know my seashells!

Before I share my supplies and instructions for each card here is the complete hop list.

Stop by the Stampendous blog to see more great projects as well as the designers participating in the weekly theme.
