Fun in the Sun

This is what I wish I was doing right now.  My apologies to you Northerners, but the weather where we are has been perfect for doing this:


blue skies, a sandy beach, a hammock between the palms and a favorite pair of flip-flops...is there anything better?  I left off a sentiment since the image speaks for itself.   Hope you can see the sparkly glitter on the palm trees and the flip flops.

Well, now you can go to the beach anytime you want...even if it's not exactly beachy weather where you are thanks to a brand new set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Surfin' Woody (456).  I think it may be my all time favorite sun and surf set.  Did you see the woody car with real wood sides I created yesterday?   I think I want one!  This set is perfect for those hard to make guy cards as well..

You can find the step by step instructions and supply list for creating this card here

BTW...DH survived his colonoscopy yesterday.  He decided his first meal would be breakfast even though all he talked about while he fasted was hamburgers, LOL!   I made ham and cheese omelets with peppers and onions, hash browns (potatoes from my garden..woo,hoo) and cinnamon raisin toast.  He was a happy camper. 

Thanks to everyone who offered prayers and good wishes. 


Pin It!
