Shells For Sale/TMS Guest Spot

A Great Good Morning to everyone. Before I get into my post about this very cute card I have to update you on my computer situation. After some phone calls and great news that my laptop was still under warranty, it has become like new fresh out of the box without any leg work and without having to send it off for repair. I'm becoming much more computer savvy. Of course, there usually is bad news with the good news and this time is no different, my main desk top computer has crashed also. Fortunately, we have not lost all our data because we have an extra drive on it, and since it is an older model hubby says he's shopping for a new one. Thank goodness for my laptop. Now onto the fun stuff this morning.
The last Tuesday in August and my final week Guesting on Tuesday Morning Sketches. It has really been fun working with Melissa and her team and she has had some really great sponsors for us this month and today is no exception in that department either. Our Sponsor this week is Robyn of Robyn's Fetish. Click on the link, scroll down and click on shop or browse the site at your leisure. Robyn has quite a collection of digis for your digi stamping fun. I hope you all come over and join in the challenge this week. Melissa has another great sketch:
With the sketch and my card above and all the team members great cards we have given you some inspiration and a jumping off point..
I had a lot of fun sponging the sand on with 3 colors of ink, and lightly sponging in the sky and I do mean lightly, then coloring the rest with my Copic markers. I love the way the colorless blender lifted the color to make the dots on her swim suit. She reminded me of my sister when she was little, not only in looks, but she loved and still loves the beach and swimming. Since, today is her birthday, a duplicate card already went off to her in the mail.
Break out all those papers you've been hoarding and some ink and stamps, don't forget the embellies, we're all  looking forward to seeing your creations as the week unfolds.

Beautiful coloring on the beach scene and the starfish are the perfect accent in the circle element of the sketch! It's been fun having you on the DT; thanks for all the great inspiration!!
