Enjoy Your Day!

Enjoying my days is what I've been doing the past week! We just got back from a week in Clabria - the south of Italy- and we had a fantastic time - great weather - perfect sea and pool temperatures, wonderful food and a nice holel with really sweet staff on top of that - it just couldn't have been better!

Missed my papercrafting stuff though and when I got back I had 2 new Newton's Nook stampset waiting for me and of course I was inspired - and in the right mood too - to play along with their beach challenge!



Well, there was one thing to complain about - I got spam on my blog the first and only time I opened it on the hotel computer. Therefore I haven't been able to return comments and have a lot to catch up with checking what you all have been up to!
Does anyone know how to get rid of unwanted postings in your blog reader - it's as if I'm following a German film blog that I've never heard of and that I can't find in my "following" list - very annoying!

I'm also entering this for the "Anything goes" challenge at Stamp and create and Make the day specials color challenge: I used the greens, dark pink, orange and beige from the B scheme.

Here are some pics from Tropea;

 



 Both Ted and I found time for some painting 
- will share when I have time to photograph the results!

 

Have a great day! Hugs, Karin

What an adorable card! I love how the patterned paper looks like kitten was "splashing around" in it!! And how fun! Your vacation looks awesome, and I definitely want to see those painting pictures. ;) Also, what was the hotel you stayed at? I'm going to be studying in Austria this upcoming fall semester, and at one point I'll be in Italy, and that hotel sounds like a lovely place to stay! :)

Sweet card! NN stamps stamp so well, and clean up just as easily too! Really fun colors too. And *sigh* vacation...I'm waiting till October, so these wonderful beachy photos are exactly what I needed to see! Especially of that darling little guy! Bev

Karin, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation in Italy! I must admit that I am a bit green with jealousy...Italy...how exotic! I just spent five days in the middle of Utah (USA) at a campground with a little lake. As for your card, It is darling! Those background papers are perfect with the Newton image! Enjoy your last days of freedom before school starts!
Hugs,
Debbie

I just LOVE this sweet kitty! Beautiful water coloring, and the background papers are so fun! Such a cute card!

I'm sorry that I don't know anything about dealing with spam...hopefully, you'll be able to take care of it!
