Our Craft Lounge DT!



Hi there! I have a big announcement today!! Our Craft Lounge has just started a new DT.....and I'm BEYOND excited to tell you that I'm going to be a part of it!! Whoo-hoooo!

Check out all these talented ladies that I get to work with: Amber Hillman, Beth Silaika, Cambria Turnbow, Carol Halvorson , Charmaine Ikach , Cindy Lawrence , Deb Felts , Heather McNally , Holly McMillen , Kendra Wietstock , Kisa Peters , Lila Holgate , Pam Hooten , Valerie Stangle , Debbie Corbari and Joy Kennedy

How's that for some amazing talent?!! Stop by their blogs because they all have OCL creations to share with you today in celebration of the new DT.

For my card, I used my Coastal Wishes set. The main panel with the lighthouse is up on foam tape, and so are the punched crabs along the left-hand side. The Sahara Sand panel is lightly stamped with SU's Sanded BG. The layout is Weekend Sketch 83.

Here's the inside of the card with another stamp from the Coastal Wishes set:
