Just Another Day in Paradise...
I wish I was in paradise, but I'm not... However, it is finally nice and sunny here in the Pacific Northwest and the last weather report I heard said that our warm, sunny weather is going to hang around for awhile... YIPEEE!!! Not exactly paradise, but I will take it! My card is for a couple of challenges: JUGs and Wee Memories. The Wee Memories challenge is to make a summertime card and when I saw the JUGs sketch, I thought two would be a good match. Didn't take me long to decide to use the Hero Arts/BasicGrey cling set Lauderdale along with some Stampin Up designer paper I got a couple of years ago. The sentiment is from Hero Arts as well. Some sand colored Flower Soft was used to make the little beach. The "coconut" is a corduroy button from Stampin Up! I don't live in paradise... but I can create a bit of it on a card!
Thanks for taking a peek.... hope everyone in the US had a wonderful 4th of July!!
