365 Cards - Day 142 & D2D Beachy!

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday with 365 Cards and D2D! I'm going to try and keep this short as I have developed some wicked allergies so I'm having trouble typing through the sneezing and watering eyes! UGH! So NOT how I wanted to spend my vacation week! Oh well, above is my card for this week's 365 Cards challenge which is "Imagine This: Earth". I used the seashells from the image that Audrey used yesterday (see it here)! I can't take credit for the concept of this card...went to my go-to-inspiration gal, Michelle Zindorf, for this one. I kinda combined two of her cards and simplified them a bit but it's pretty close to what she did here and here. Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. allsorts challenge blog - free and easy
2. Card Makin’ Mamas - summertime
3. City Crafter Challenge Blog - It's a shore thing
4. Craft your passion challenges - text it: my sentiment is actually computer generated and printed in the same color as the cardstock to simulate writing in the sand
5. Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - 3-2-1 recipe: I've got 3 rhinestones, 2 shells and 1 sentiment
6. Crafts and Me - summertime
7. Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - anything goes + digi
8. Fairy Fun Friday - On Holiday: well, I'd like to be on the beach and relaxing but not until these allergies are better!
10. Lexi's Creations - at the beach
11. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps - at the beach

Also here's my sample for this week's D2D Saturday Challenge. I'm the host this week and meant to post this on Saturday but Harry Potter, allergies, dog birthday party, and allergies got in the way! So I want to see your beachy, summery, tropical creations! I used several of Faith's images for mine and check out the D2D blog for the details! Hope you can play along with us this week!

Thanks for stopping by and Aloha,

The message in your card is some advice you should take for yourself this week while on vacation! Love the CAS of this card and your computer generated greeting is so cool! So take your own advice and feel better DD! Love, SAM aka MOM
