Good Vibes and Hugs

Good Monday morning!  It's Jeanne today with a card that goes back to the 60s using the new Beach and Tropical dies.  I just couldn't resist using the Surfer Van die with this stamp that says "Good Vibes"! They just naturally went together!
Growing up in a beach city in Southern California during the 60's I saw my fair share of surfer vans, so I tried to make this one in the colors I remembered.  And of course there had to be a peace sign!

The sentiment reminded me of Beach Boys songs so I went with a 60s album cover theme for this card.  It is a 5 1/2 x5 1/2 inches and uses a patterned paper for the background sunburst.

I normally would not put three sentiments on a card but in keeping with the record theme, I wanted an album title, a group name and a song.  To me "Life is Beautiful" is the song, but I'm not sure if the group is "Hugs" or "Good Vibes Only"!

I had fun researching 60s album covers on Pinterest.  The hand drawn Good Vibes and the stitched Hugs fit right in with the era.  And I was able to find an old 45 to put in my background!  (It's from the Columbia Record Club - my dad was a member!)

I'm not sure who will get this card.  I have several music lovers in my life so I may have to make a few more!
Be sure to stop by the online store where the Beach and Tropical release is on sale for a limited time!


Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you have a wonderful week!
