Beach baby, beach baby...

Good morning!

It's shaping up to be a beautiful day here, too bad I have to spend most of it at work... sigh. Oh well, at least I can daydream about playing in the sunshine. Kind of like my card today... :)

This little bathing beauty is one of the new June digi stamps from Spesch (Beach Girl) and as soon as I saw her I knew the exact paper that I wanted to pair with her. I think it is that fun expression on her face that had me wanting to use this quote on the card... it cracks me up! Not that she looks to have anything to be self conscious about but I sure can relate. Seriously, is there anything worse than shopping for a new bathing suit? Luckily I think I can just make do with last summer's suit, LOL!

If you haven't popped by Spesch to check out the rest of the new summer images yet, what are you waiting for? In just a few short days we will be unveiling the mid-month release that is geared more toward the winter months, which our Aussie friends are currently experiencing. It's cute, cute stuff I tell ya! :)

Ok, I gotta scoot the boot... check ya later!

It's funny, I wrote on facebook that I'd rather have a root canal and get my hair pulled out strand by strand than go bathing suit shopping again, lol! Love that card ;0)

Hi there Amy. I have to say that I love, love this one. She is so adorable! I can not believe how real you have made her hair look. I sure hope you teach this on Color Me Copic! What a great card. It made my whole day. Have a good day at work. I will be thinking about you as I am at work today also. Hugs, Lisa
