Seas the moment

It just seems like my day yesterday was on a beach/water theme.  We went on a Carnival Cruise during spring break and they sent me an e-mail birthday card from Carnival so it reminded me of the cruise and the ocean.  My family decided to take me out to Red Lobster for dinner.  My son just loves the rolls.  My daughter was sweet and picked up my favorite - a carrot cake, but we were all to stuffed to eat any last night.  Unfortunately, I had to work and just before I left we had a bad storm of lightening and thunder with rain pouring down.  When I pulled out of our neighborhood, I noticed that the neighbor's tree had bark in the street and there were branches all over.  When I got closer to the hospital, there were many trees and branches down.  Apparently, one house even started on fire from the lightening.  Luckily it was short lived.  What a way to end my birthday. So my first card has WATER.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create and I distressed it in Tim Holtz ink and spritzed it with water to give a more worn look.
My second card is using new paper and image from TLC, Create with the coffee theme. I inked the outside of the label 21 with Memento black ink, and I put Ice Stickles on the flowers.
