ICS Blog Hop Waves of the Ocean

Hello crafters and welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop for March.  Today we are sharing "My Favorite Bundle" as our theme for our projects. I am in *LOVE* with our Waves of the Ocean collection due to my immense love for the ocean.

 I am so enjoying this new product collection, it reflects a lot of things that I am so fond of at the ocean: dreamy blue/green colors, swirly water, refreshing salty air, and powerful waves.  My card tutorial and supplies are listed at the end of this post so you can make this at your home.

Would you please scroll down and leave me a comment today? I would love to know what you think about these new products!
