Life's a Beach!

I'll start off by admitting that, "I'm not a fan of Summer", specially here in Arizona, where our Summers are not something we can enjoy.  When we use to live in California, I remember asking myself, "How do people live in that Arizona heat?", guess what? you just do!  You eventually acclimate, although, I don't think I'll ever acclimate to 115 degree weather....once it's past 110 degrees, WOW!  We're cooking!  But it's all worth it, because our Winter and Spring weather is to die for....just perfect.

I thought this image would be a perfect reflection of  Summer, even though I was not much of a beach goer, so I can't say I miss it, but it's a nice and refreshing thought.  

This is one of my most recent stamp purchases, it's a House-Mouse image called Beach Bums.  I was very pleased with the way this card turned out.  I used Copic markers to color the image, sprinkled some Dazzling Diamond Stampin' Glitter all over the sand, which by the way, I love the look that gave, followed by cardstock from Stampin' Up and designer paper from Me & My Big Ideas - Destination Paradise.  The finished card size is 5"x 5".

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great Summer!
