TakeTime To Relax

Hello Everyone,

I hope your having a wonderful Wednesday!! Can you believe it...2nd post today? I didn't want to miss out~I was scrabbling to try and fit in this challenge over at Cricut 360 which ends this evening and finally decided to put down my "to do list" today and getter done..no biggy that the laundry, dusting and vacuuming, etc wait another day, right? LOL!

So, off I go to my craft room and here is my card that I made for the challenge. My card base is 6".  I cut this bathing beauty at 3 1/4 plus the layers from the Pack Your Bags cartridge, the tree from the Life's a Beach cartridge at 3 1/2 and 2" and distressed them a bit and added a little doodling. The little flip flops are also from Life's a Beach at 1".


I used fringe scissors from Martha Stewart for the grass and then cut 1 x 6 and 1 1/2 x 6 strips of green, tan and blue~then tore and distressed and added it to the beach to get the sandy beach look in front of the water. The sentiment is from Pink By Design~Summer Vacation set.  In about 3 weeks, I will be doing exactly this........relaxing and sipping on a cocktail in Mexico. Can't wait:)

So, now that I feel like I got my craft fix for the day........I am off to get my housework done. I am behind big time because all my spare time has been helping my daughter pack/clean up before she moves into her home in a couple weeks.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to be back tomorrow!
