Jeweled Mosaics

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything in a while, but I've been outside playing. I've been taking golf lessons and, surprisingly, have been enjoying them. It's a women's clinic, and we're having fun learning the game and getting to know each other. The other thing occupying my time is my husband and I got a paddle board. We live close enough to the lake, that we can take the dog to the beach and throw the ball for her, and take turns on the board. By the end of the summer, I think we'll be getting another one - we are having sooooo much fun. Yesterday, in fact, I had too much fun in the sun, so after church I decided to stay indoors and play with my stamps.
Supplies: Stamps - Modern Mosaic; Paper - Crushed Curry, Midnight Muse, Whisper White; Ink - Crushed Curry, Midnight Muse; Embossing Folder - Modern Mosaic; Punch - Mosaic; Jewels - Pearls, Rhinestones
