Pile It On #29 - Kick Back and Relax

This week at Pile It On we are fully in Summer mode as we have set you the challenge of "Kick Back and Relax".
Now you may say that my card doesn't look very relaxing but for me, getting time to just sit and color is the perfect relaxation for me! Maybe your card will have you hanging out on the beach or reading a book or playing a game of chess, anything that makes you think you have a little time just for you :)
We are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp so you know you want to win this one!
