Kick Back and Relax

Good morning, hope you are all having a fabulous day. It is gorgeous here….the sky is blue and the sun is shining…and it’s supposed to get smokin’ hot today….whooo hooo!!!  Gotta love it when the weatherman says no rain. And to celebrate the fact that the sun has at last decided to come out, I’m going to show you the Father’s Day card that I did up for my Father in Law. The image I used is by Nana Vic’s and is called MorningSwim.
I started out with “sand” coloured cs by Bazzil for the base and added some blue “dotty” paper also by Bazzil. The beach chair is an image by Cat Scrap and the tiki torch, sand dollar and starfish are stickers from Creative Imaginations. I stuck the tiki torch onto some of the sand coloured cs (to give it some stability) and then cut it out. The rhinestone swirl is something I had in my stash.
I took a piece of the sand coloured cs and embossed it with my Cuttlebug Candy Cane Stripe folder and then used my SU rounded corner punch on it. I then ran it through my crimper starting at one corner and going to the next. This gave the the embossing a wonderful texture to it.
I put this in behind My Mind’s Eye Surf’s Up Blue Waves dp, which was cut with my Nestibilities Labels One Small. I then put it all together on an Easel with 2 mini easel add on's card. My images were coloured with Crayola pencil crayons and oms.

And now, I am off to enjoy some of this nice weather. Thanks for looking.....Charlene
