Mondays are for Vacation

At least this Monday is for Vacation.  The Friends of Speedy TV are challenging crafters to make a vacation themed card today.  My idea of vacation is always going to be hot and tropical.  You see, I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and we don't get a lot of sunny and warm here.  This week is supposed to be an exception.  While the rest of the country is experiencing blistering temperatures, we are just now getting into the high 70's.  I climbed the stairs into my stuffy craft room with my ice cold drink to create this one layer card.  After a bit of masking, sponging and bending of stamps, I emerged with my beachy scene!  I used a partial sentiment and the palm tree from Flamingos on Vacation.  This set just so happens to be the prize for one randomly chosen player!  Take a look at it below:


Hello flamingos!!  Don't you just love that polka-dotted ric-rac?  I hope you play along in order to have a chance at winning this fabulous set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Details - Stamps: Flamingos on Vacation (MFP); Paper: Favorite Natural (MFP); Ink: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight; Accessories: sponge dauber, circle punch, corner chomper, blender pen, post it, spritzing tool.
