High Tide stamp set is the perfect answer whenever you hear the beach calling your name.

Or to use for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by the neutral colors and the nautical theme.

I love that this card is versatile and can fit any occasion depending on the type of Designer Series Paper you choose.

This year I am embarking on a mission to not only purchase Designer Series Paper but to actually USE it.

I made a promise to myself that I was no longer going to hoard my Designer Series Paper!
