KSS 2nd Monday - Truck on the Beach

It's time for another Kitchen Sink Stamps scene. I mixed images from Multi Step Classic Old Truck, Multi Step Palm Trees, and Multi Step Lighthouse to create today's Father's Day design. It was inspired by a recent trip my husband and I took to Mustang Island! What a fun day! (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps)

  1. Mustang Island... I have been there! Many years ago my parents took us to Corpus Christi to visit my uncle who lived there. He was wheelchair bound from an oil rig accident but he sure loved to get around and fish. Anyway, we went to the beach on Mustang Island. Took a fairy over and back. So much fun! I have never had a sand burn before but that summer I learned how hot Texas sand can get! Woohoo! I would love to visit there someday again. Thanks for bringing back some very old memories! Love your card!

  2. It's amazing how realistic your red truck and palm trees look. Love the scene you built Lynn! Reminds me of many afternoons by the beach for me.

  3. As soon as I saw this I kept thinking that Jim and I needed to take a trip to the coast! This is so pretty Lynn. Love the palms and that wonderful truck.

  4. Oh wow I absolutely LOVE your fun truck beach scene here!! How clever and what a great way to hold on to a fun memory!! LOVE IT!!
