Friend. Good.

Hey, all! Hope your weekend is off to a rockin' start! It was so hot here yesterday, hubby & I backed out of going to the local festival...we went to a movie & the bookstore instead. Now we're getting ready to watch the World Cup, but I wanted to get this card posted first.

Finding this scrap of patterned paper in my stash is what inspired this summery card. I combined a well-loved set--PTI's Day at the Beach--with one that hadn't seen ink yet--SU's Smarty Pants.


Once again I've played along with several challenges:
FTL94
Stamp Something--Happy Somethings
Stampin' for the Weekend 40--Summer
Secret Crafter 87--Include a Quote

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Day at the Beach (PTI), Smarty Pants (SU)
Paper: Real Red, PTI white, October Afternoon pp

Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy

Accessories: Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, dimensionals

Ann this is adorable! I am a slipper girl (they call them flip flops here in the contiguous U.S.) so this card screams my name. Beautiful papers and that scrap paper of DP is perfect!! Have a great weekend, enjoy the WC!
