Card Recipe:
Image - Scrubby Sue
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Lime Twist Fly A Kite by My Minds Eye
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Wooden Ball and Palm Tree - Provo Craft
Seagull and Crab - Dress It Up buttons by Jesse James
Sun - Spellbinders Pinking Circles



I used some of my old scrapbooking techniques on this card by tearing cardstock and inking the edges to make the sand on the beach.
It has been so warm here in Texas that the only place that feels good is in the water and so this card makes me want the beach as well as the neighborhood pool. But it's a Staycation for us this year and so the fun is close to home.
Hope you can keep cool in the Summer weather and maybe an afternoon in crafting would be a good idea!
