MC July/12 - CatTails - Tranquility

I don't think there is anything more peaceful than looking on to water, hearing the insects and just being. I remember when I lived in PEI and there were some of these little inlets of the ocean, with cattails and herons, I would just sit there for ages - miss that.

I remember buying this embossing folder set, loving it, but other than putting a sample in my data system, I've never used it... So glad I finally have. The object stamps are a couple of my newest stamps from Beeswax. I've been enjoying using the scenic type stamps I picked up from them.

I'm also using one of the "Six Gentle Word" stamps from Quietfire Design
