By the Sea...


I would love to live by the Sea.. There is something so relaxing
and calming about sitting and looking out at the big blue sea..
I think the draw for me is that the ocean seems so big,
that it makes all my problems seem so small..

I always love the saying if you're Lucky enough to live by the
Sea you're Lucky enough.. 

This week over at City Crafter Challenge blog
Kirsty is our Host.  And our challenge is
By the Sea!  I Love it!!


So for our challenge this week I made a Tag..
You know how much I love Tags..  I used this Lighthouse from
our Sponsor this week..  Shannon's Sentiments..
If you want to play along this week you might have a chance to win
Some free digi..  

To get all the details on this challenge, Or if you just want to check out
 what all the other Ladies created you can hop on over to CCCB!







Look what we found...




So sweet and innocent..





There was at least 6 of these little cuties at my Moms house.
Sad to say the Mom is a wild kitty..  But she seems to be taking care
of these little guys..  Even though I think they need a bath..
It looks like they were just starting to open there Eyes..

Boy do I want to keep one of these guys.. 
It was sooooo hard not to bring one or two home..
I think that really would make me a crazy cat lady..

Thanks so much for visiting today..

Hugs, Linda

I love all the background stamping and texture you added on this tag. It's wonderful Linda! I like the way you did the hole reinforcement at the top too. Looks cool!
There's nothing like baby animals is there. :-) Have a fantastic day my friend!

Linda your card is sooooooooooo pretty. Did you get your goodie bagg yet?

Sylvia said...

Your tag is beautiful! I lived right on the shore when we lived in Balikpapan, Indonesia. The only way off was by boat or plane. I could hear the waves and yes it was wonderful. It was a coral reef so you could not swim in it but could walk along the beach. Those babies are beautiful. I miss babies, but I have four wonderful cats who would not appreciate an addition. My daughter keeps tempting me, because Triggers, gray brother died a few years back and we really miss him, but I think it would be unfair to the others as they seem so happy now. Have a great day. Great challenge again!

So love your tag Linda,looks like you've used some of the new techniques you learnt too! Such cute kittens,we once found a family of kittens in our shed,the mother was a stray but the dad was wild and the biggest cat I've ever seen,we adopted the mum but the kittens were so wild that the cats protection league had to catch them and said they'd probably never be tame enough to handle. They gave them a home in their shelter. Have a
Lovely week,hugs to Myles! Julie x

What a lovely tag, Linda! Your distressing on this is just beautiful. :)

JeanFB said...

Oh my goodness! Okay, first of all, your tag is gorgeous! The colors are so serene, and I love how you've composed the whole thing - just perfect. Now, how are we going to get me one of those kitties???? I have a big soft spot for orange male cats (I've got one with me right now!) and I think he needs another playmate. Good luck resisting (aaaahhh, just go ahead and become the crazy cat lady, LOL!) Jean :)

This tag is gorgeous - what a fabulous background and love that lighthouse!

Davi said...

Fabulous tag Linda, love the lighthouse! I agree the ocean is so huge an is an amazing place to be. Those kitties are so precious...bet it took a lot to leave them behind. Hope mom keeps the eyes clean. My little Petunia only has one eye cuz her and her siblings were a wild cats and had eye infections. We tried to save their eyes with meds but could only save one on each of them.

Netty said...

Such a fabulously designed Tag Linda, loving all the great textures and colours. Loving those great words because they are so very true. Annette x

Beautiful tag. Love the colors of course and the lighthouse.
Living very close to a fjord and a 5 minute drive to the ocean I am very thankful for that.
Those kittens looks adorable...

Chris said...

Love your tag, Linda. Fabulous colours and I love the image. I too would love to live by the sea.

The kittens look so adorable but as I'm allergic to cats I wouldn't be taking any home. :o)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Lovely tag, great use of that digi image!
Like you, my dream is to live by the sea, we did have an opportunity to live by the Atlantic ocean one time in NJ though, love it!

Hello there Linda, that's a beautiful tag, love the layers you've got going on and the subtle colour. The sentiment is wonderful as are those sweet kittens, poor little things, shame mum's not taking care of them. Gorgeous photos :0) xxx

Gayle said...

Hi Linda, thanks for dropping by for "tea" today. Thought I would say hi over here at your "happy place". Your tag is beautiful and I, fortunately, live by the sea and agree with your sentiments totally. Poor little kitties, they look so vulnerable. I am reassured that they will be fine tho. knowing that you know they are there. Good luck with finding homes for them.

What a fabulous tag, Linda! Totally love that lighthouse. Fantastic stamping job. Love, love, love the texture you've created. And how I wish to be near the sea again. I used to live just off the beach in CA, and boy do I ever miss the ocean. :)
what sweet little baby kitties. Soooo tiny and precious!

Joanna K (aka Asia K) said...

OMW, my heart has just totally melted...These kitties are sooo unbearably cute...I would not be able to resist taking one home although I don't know what my Kropek would approve ;) Lovely tag, Linda! I love this light house and the words in the sentiment are so inspiring, aren't they?

Thank you for your comment about my craft room ;) Funny you should mention that, as you don't even realise that it was your craft room that has inspired me! Ever since I saw the pics I wanted to have such a pretty room like Linda's! Big hugs Hunni! ;)
