A Day at the Beach




Well, this card has been a complete joy to make! I got this little penguin from Inky Antics because I wanted some stamps that I could go crazy with gamsol and the colored pencils. I think this little guy is just about the most precious thing I can hardly stand it! This card was inspired by a card done by Kristen Dubosque that she posted on her blog, Confessions of a Naptime Stamper. She has some really great cards on her blog, but I fell in love this one in particular and, of course, had to have the stamp! Sound familiar? We are all a bunch of enablers, aren't we! Its terrible!

I would have loved to have spent today at the beach, but no such luck. I was inside for the weekend working on yet another paper. I did get it, for the most part, finished so I am in pretty good spirits! The tri-mester is coming to an end soon. I have decided not to take the summer class I was planning on taking as I could use a break from it all. I will really be looking forward to some much need stamping time.

There is a pretty important box coming to my house tomorrow afternoon. I can hardly stand the wait any longer. I have seen everyone using their new colors and I want to too. I am also looking forward to the Baroque Motif set. I actually ended up submitting an order without that set and then ordered that set all by itself the next day. I could have kicked myself for the money in shipping I wasted, but what is a girl to do? When you need your baroque motif you need your baroque motif!

Well, enough of my endless chatter! Hope you like the card!
