Crafting on the Go: Vacation vibes :)

Hi friends!

We're in full vacation mode over here on the Gulf of Mexico!
It's absolutely stunning here on the other side of Florida with the
gorgeous pink and purple sunsets, crystal blue water and sugar sand beaches ♥
We've been enjoying the fabulous sunshine and gorgeous weather :) 

My daughter and I visited a beautiful private island yesterday
and I brought along some card making items for 'Crafting on the Go.' 
I've been diligently keeping up with The Daily Marker
 and I also needed to make my cards for The Project Bin so they traveled with me!

My inspiration for these cards was looking out into the ocean
writing in the sand and watching the waves wash it away ♥

The idea behind my card was to create with limited supplies.
I made sand and water and sunsets by simply using the wide tip markers
and making streaks across the cardstock in varied colors.
Once they were dry, I used my mini misti to stamp the sentiments from
the fabulous #bff stamp set.

The idea is it might not be what you normally would create,
but that you CAN create - be inspired by your surroundings ♥ 

These cards are clean and simple because it was impossible
to bring designer papers, the cuttlebug, dies!
I used limited supplies and created an linear type art for the base card.
Piet Mondrian would be so proud! :)

All photos were taken when we returned to the resort.
 We have a few more adventures planned and then head for home Tuesday :(
Always the hardest part about vacations - the ending!

Meanwhile, you can have fun shopping at The Project Bin here
and visit the blog for inspiration here!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
