Sending Buckets of Love

Happy Saturday everyone!
I am trying to get back in the swing of things with lots of new stuff for you to see and today I have a Summery "Just Because" card that I made a few weeks ago.
We took a short break/long weekend and got two days at the beach a few weeks ago and this takes me back to the warm ocean breeze (well wind) on my face and my toes in the sand.
It has been a super busy week for me with two birthdays, running to and from school for both High Schoolers who have "before school starts stuff" with Band and PSAT team and I could do with a walk on the sand but it's not coming any time soon so this card will have to make do.

A very simple card for me, just a little layering for dimension, a few layers of torn sand, a little inking and that was about it.
Anyway. I'm sending Buckets of Love to all of you and be sure to drop back tomorrow for a card for the new challenge at Pile It On!
