Birthday Card Using CTMH Cape Cod Cardmaking Stamp Set with CTMH Buildable Tags

Hello friends! I hope all of you are doing well.  I know some of you had a Tropical Storm come through the US; caused by Hurricane Hilary; which also hit Southern CA.  It did a lot of damage to some areas near us. We just had a lot of tree limbs break, due to the heavy rains and some areas flooded; but there were areas hit much worse than us, including the desert area and other places in the path of the storm.  

Southern CA also had a 5.1 Earthquake in the middle of the Tropical Storm also hitting our area.  The Earthquake was about 60 miles from us and it shook the house and everything in it.  It was a scary time.  I hate Earthquakes and Hurricanes both.  I came to Southern CA to get away from the Hurricanes in Florida; and this is the first one we have had since I have been here in over 25 yrs.  

I created this card during the storm.  I love this stamp set that creates the sky, ocean and the sand with 3 different stamps.  It looks so real to me.  I love the ocean; but haven't been for a while.  I realized that I am almost out of birthday cards; and this one could be used for male or female.  I wanted to make it with a window looking out at the ocean scene.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
