Inspired by the Beach

I loved our little vacation at the beach.  We had a wonderful time swimming, snorkeling and sunning ourselves while reading on the beach.  Our family returned relaxed and energized ready for a brand new year!  I was so inspired by the colors and textures of the ocean that I designed this Thank You card using products from Fun Stampers Journey.

I created this card using stamps, ink, cardstock and embellishments from Fun Stampers Journey.  Simply click on the link below and select catalog to browse through an amazing assortment of beautiful products.  If you have any questions please email me at: nunutoolies@gmail.com

The stamp set is called: Sea Side Treasures (SS-0071) and consists of 8 stamps.  I used the Starfish, Thank You sentiment stamp and background script which tells the most beautiful story:

Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean
to do his writing.  He had habit of walking on the beach before he
began his work.  One day he was walking along the shore as he
looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.  
He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the 
day.  So he began to walk faster to catch up.  As he got closer, he saw
that it was a young man and the young man wasn't dancing, but 
instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something
and very gently throwing it in the ocean.  As he got closer he called
out, "Good Morning! What are you doing?" The young man paused,
looked up and replied, "throwing star fish in the ocean." " I guess I
should have asked, why are you throwing Star Fish in the ocean?"
"The sun is up and the tide is going out.  And if I don't throw them in they'll
die."  "But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles
of beach and starfish all along it.  You can't possible make a
 difference!"  The young man listened politely.  Then bent down, 
picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, passed the
breaking waves and said
"It made a difference to that one"
