Let's Scuba!

Hi everyone! 
 I can't believe summer is winding down already ~ say it isn't so!
I'm not ready for the new school year,
which starts in just 2 short weeks.
I'm soooo not ready! :(
We love the outdoors here and when blessed with gorgeous weather,
we make trips to the beach!
My 'to-make' list from Pinterest has grown,
including creations needing shells - lots and lots of pretty shells!
The tides haven't brought many to the shore lately,
so we ventured out with masks and snorkels to find them -
and did we ever!
I'm super excited to get started on those gifts now ♥

This week's bi-weekly Riley and Company Stamps challenge
is brought to us by Kendra ~ Summer/outdoor sports.
While we don't scuba, we snorkel --
 an outdoor activity that we just love!

I've used Scuba Riley on my card today,
colored with prismacolor markers and added to a card base
with summery, bright colors ...
such a happy card :)
Be sure stop by the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT
If you'd like to link up your Riley card to the challenge blog,

Thanks for stopping by!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings ♥
