I can't believe it's already August! Summer is going way too quickly! But it IS still summer! So this month's 
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop 
is all about summer-which to me means beach!

Here is what I came up with:

If you know me, you know that I am from Cape Cod. So lighthouses are so special to me! I grew up with the flashing light & the fog horns. When I look at this card I can see Nobska Light in Falmouth Heights flashing away! Never really saw a swordfish swimming there, but who knows! Good eats anyway! lol

There are a few stamp sets used here. The main one is From Land to Sea. Love it! It has everything I love in it!  The sentiment is Sassy Salutations. There is a bit of Gorgeous Grunge to "bubble" up the water, and the beautiful star thing from Kinda Eclectic is the light from the lighthouse.  

Throw in a bit of bling-of course-with Crystal Effects & Silver Stampin' Glitter & it looks like the breakwater in the waves.  The water is just a simple watercolor wash with my Aqua Painter.  

So hope I made you feel like summer is still in the air! Now hop on over to Claudia's blog & see what beautiful summer design she came up with! Just click the picture below, or click on her name! Either one will take you there! Don't miss a single blog on this hop! Keep going! There is some serious talent here! Don't forget to leave a comment! Maybe you'll get some ideas of your own!

Until next month!

Happy Stampin'!
