Our Florida Motto

George and I moved to Florida to .......yes, RELAX.  When we got here however, life was not as inexpensive as it was years ago, and we ended up working part time...each of us.
Relax is still our motto.
I have "relax" all over my house. I am working hard to do more relaxing!
I made this card for Digital Delights. I used the Just Grillin' Accessories Set, the Luau Sentiments Set, and the  Fabulous 50's Digital Paper Pack, all by Digital Delights. The checkered background paper from the 50's set was torn and layered over some patterned paper from my stash. I sewed them together with my Singer. They are layered onto some Coordinations Card Stock. The card face was run through my Vagabond with a Tim Holtz folder. I distressed the edges of everything, either with the inner blade of my scissors, or Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.


I cut out the image of the cute trees after stamping on them with a very old CTMH background script stamp, and inking them up with Distress Inks in Broken China and Frayed Burlap.  I then used just a touch of Perfect Pearls on them. They are layered onto the card with 3-D dots.

The bees are from CTMH.
  So is the twine.

My sentiment in stamped with the same background script stamp as the trees. I distressed the edges with the same two colors and used some Diamond Glaze to coat the letters.
I love this card. I enjoyed taking my Digital Delights stamps to a new level!
