Dreaming of Summer

It's a cold, wet day here in Florida.  A bit unusual for us.  It's a perfect day to be inside crafting.  Today's card is for Challenge #48 called Dreaming of Summertime at Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog.  I thought it was a very appropriate challenge for today. :)  My summer card is a beach card.  I live on the coast of Florida and this image makes me think of lounging on the beach on a scorching warm summer day. lol  We actually go to the beach in the early evening during the summer most of the time to try to beat the worst of the heat.  I've been on an orange kick with cards lately.  Maybe it's all of the overcast days we've had. 

This view shows the texture on the card.  I used Crystal Lacquer on the toenails and waves and real sand on the beach.

Blessings
  • Soft, cozy pj's on this cold evening.
  • A husband who cares about even the small details of life that seem important to me.
  • Our medical insurance. 
  • More rain!!!
God made each of us one of a kind - just like snowflakes.  You're very special.

Inky hugs!
Shelly
