Sunny Days

Goodness do you know how much laundry you accumulate while on vacation. I'm finally on my last load so I decided to run in here and make a quick card. I've missed stampin'. I got my inspiration today from The A Muse Addicts Weekly Challenge which was to make a summery card. No problemo!!! I got this stamp right before we left and had the image already stamped out ready to go. I colored it in with Earth Element Watercolor Crayons. The palm leaves are covered in green Stickles and the hammock is cut out and raised with a dimensional. My friend Edie brought me some A Muse paper scraps the other day. So I dug through them and pulled out this striped orange one to use. Thanks Goober-E! The Cool Caribbean cardstock is stamped in Tempting Turquoise with one of the backgrounds from Looks Like Spring. To finish it off, I sponged the edges of my Kraft cardstock with Close to Cocoa. Oh how perfect is this, as I'm posting, Kenny Chesney's No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem is playing from my iTunes library. Love that song! Look what we came home to find in the garden. Our first ever cucumber. Must be doing something right, LOL. Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!!!
