Remembrance by the Sea

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with The Male Room. Their theme is one where I have the most challenge: 'Remembrance/Sympathy'. I don't seem to make enough of these cards. So, whenever I need a sympathy card it seems that I don't have any around. TMR has served an important service to me to restock my supply. Here is my card for today. Enjoy!

I can see how the sea is so fitting for  remembrance/sympathy card. The soft sounds
and beautiful scenery invoke relaxation and peace.
This is just the feeling you want to convey when sending such a card. 
A bit of sponging and a bit of stamping creates this
card of remembrance/sympathy.
'Recall it as often as you wish, a happy memory never wears out'Embossed 'stars' seem fitting for the sentiment.

Entering Challenge:

Sunsets are probably the most beautiful part nature; match that up with the beach and you are in paradise. My time at the beach is filled with relaxing memories; especially the sunsets! Others from all around the surrounding area commune on the beach to see the 'show' (sunsets) then afterward applaud to mark their awe at nature.. I have seen it all around this country and I love the feeling of community.

This sunset was inspired by many I have seen at the shore. What amazes me most is the sun horizon is dark but the water is still so crystal blue and so very different from the sky. I find these sunsets to be the most miraclous. The contrast in color is a feast for the eyes! All I have to say when I see one of these miracles is 'Wow!'.

Well that should do it for me! I want to thank you so much for spending a little part of your day with me. If you are so inclined to comment on what you think that would be great! Take care all and we will see you soon!

All the best,
