At the Beach...

At the Beach...Brrrr...don't we wish!

Help...I've fallen and I can't get up! (lol)

Mary's challenge #60 at House Mouse, is to use the "On the Beach" Theme.
At first, I didn't think I had a thing to create with. Then BAM, it hit me!
While I was at Hobby Lobby the other day, their stamps were all 50% off,
and I bought this cutie patootie! So... here is my card!




I had some scraps in my stash - one looked like sand, and the other like ocean waves, and another scrap that had these flip flops. The 'drink' is pink - all coloring is done with my Koh-I-Noor pencils.

I am also entering this card at Pile it On, where challenge #30 is 'Clear'. As you can see, I've put Clear Laquer on the glass, so I think this works!

_

Also, the challenge at Creative Card Crew is 'Distressing'. I have distressed everything here with my Colorbox Chalk Chestnut Roan Ink and a sponge.

I had dinner tonight at Los Margurita's with my BF Tami, and OMG, I ate WAY too much, and am so full! I can't believe it's been over four months since we have gotten together. Tami is one of the few things I miss about working! We worked together from 1996-2008. Love ya Tam!

DH got to his jobsite today (4.5 hr. drive) to find a busted water main, so he's wet from the waist down, high temp there today was 20, so believe me when I tell you he is shivering HIS timbers!!!

_

Well, I'm off to think about what I'm going to do on a project due the 10th!

_

Hope that you are all staying warm and healthy, and are enjoying this wonderful life!

Food for thought:

A bus station is where a bus stops.

A train station is where a train stops.

On my desk, I have a work station.....

OH this mouse would fit in perfectly here in Hawaii!! hehe! I try to not do too many in the winter because mainland people get soooo jealous ;) Oh well, I guess it's the price I pay to live here :) Just kidding, this is such a cute card and I LOVE everything about it. Glad you got to play in your girl cave today! (I'd stay there to as I heard there's snow a-coming your way...) brrr!

Aloha, Kim :)

I WISH I was at the beach...it's 9 degrees here this morning so a little warm sunshine would be a welcome addition. This card is truly adorable and so well designed!

Nikki Schmaltz said...

OMGosh! Patti you are soooo creative. I love all the different elements and textures to this card. It all just works so well.

Try to stay warm sweetie...it's only 17 degrees here today with just a touch of snow. Crossing my fingers for more snow so we can sled.

I think you need to help your hubby get his "home fires burning..heehee:)
