Things That Start with S(OS)!

It's the first challenge of 2022 at Shopping Our Stash and we've got some lovely new teammates, including Stephanie Severin, so I'm extra excited. This time we'd like to see cards or projects which include Something That Begins with the Letter S... so there's quite a bit of scope there... but be sure to mention your S's if they aren't obvious, k? 

My card features Small, Sweet Seahorses Swimming on a Swirly Sea, in a Star-Shaped Shaker full of Sea-quins (geddit?!) over Sparkling Sand, Surrounded by Shells, Sanddollars and Starfish; with a Silly Sentiment and Strategic Stitching! For the record, the seahorses are from a Lawn Fawn mini-set (Sea Horsin' Around) that I've had for over a year and only just inked. The swirly sea paper is from Sassafras Lass... remember them? (And YES, this was from the era when they still had the "Lass" on there!) The brads and sequins are Eyelet Outlet, o'course; and the shaker is built using the two largest dies in my Nesties Stars set.

Be sure to hop over and welcome the new SOS Teammates, bid farewell to a few who are leaving and soak up all the S-based inspiration!
