Wow it’s Friday and the week seems to have flown by. All that stamping I was going to get done this week has been added to the things to do next week. What was it that Scarlet said, “Tomorrow is another day.”

I’ve been trying all day to work on a card for today’s Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast. Between phone calls, kids running in and out (I know I’ll miss that in a few weeks), little errands here and there, I have finally finished it. Today’s challenge is a summer theme card – celebrating what we love best about summer. Well for me, summer is water. When my girls were small we would spend a few hours each day at the pool. I love the beach – it’s truly one of the most relaxing vacations for me. I also love to boat and be out floating in the river, a cold Miller Lite in my hand, just relaxing. For me, it made sense to use Hit the Beach from My Favorite Things for my card today —– SO, here we go, Soak up the Sun!

I will be going to the Stampaway Convention in Cincinnati tomorrow. I’m so excited!!!! I’m going to meet some of my stalkin’ buds from Splitcoast, shop and eat. I’ll have some pics for you later and hopefully some fun stories to share!
