TAWS Time: Wish You Were Here!

One of the new sets from The Alley Way Stamps is Tropical Hideaway - just perfect for this week's Summer Holiday challenge at The Paper Players.  Having said that, I married a man who hates heat and hates crowds so I'll never do a tropical vacation.  We have vacationed in Alaska (it was wonderful), we have plans for Iceland (he's been and loves it) and a few years ago, my cold-loving, crowd-hating husband sailed around Cape Horn - icebergs, big waves, freezing rain and snow, being tethered to the mast so as not to be washed overboard, not my cup of tea!  So...I make these tropical cards and I dream!

Wish You Were Here

Actually only the sentiment comes from Tropical Hideaway, the image is a free digi from TAWS - find it here.  The paper comes from the American Crafts 6x6 pad, Soho Garden, which is part of the monthly kits from TAWS  that also has teal twine and gems and some wood veneer chevrons.

As I said, I was inspired by this week's Summer Holiday challenge at The Paper Players.  I also used their sketch challenge from last week.  It was a great sketch to showcase fun dsp.
