A few days ago hubs and I took a day to play...or rather sit and enjoy the view at Colonial Beach in Virginia. It's a 45 minute drive from our place. We discovered it on one of our Loveworks outings.
Loveworks are signs that are all over Virginia as part of their tourism recruitment. The motto is Virginia is for lovers.
First the card, then some pictures. Peggy surprised me with these cute seagulls from Newton's Nook so I had to pull them out and play before fall arrives.
These two cuties were colored with copic markers. A bit of water was added with some distress ink sponging in tumbled glass to the bottom of the card. I am submitting this card to Addicted to Stamps - Make your Mark.
And this was out view as we enjoyed the shade of a tree. Its a small beach on the shore of the Potomac just across the river from Maryland. There were some waves crashing against the sand, so it really felt and sounded beachy. Since Labor Day had passed and the schools started, the gull like us had the place to themselves.
Almost very piling was topped with a seagull, and there were two osprey's hanging out too.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
cute card and love the pics from your day at the beach!
This is such a sweet card. I love the cute seagulls.
It looks like you had a wonderful time at the beach. I used to like going to a place like that in the fall. But now I have kids in school so I can’t do that again for several more years!
