Hi gang! Sorry for being MIA for a few days there. I've been trying to adjust to my new job and unfortunately I'm not doing so well with it. The company is about the same size as my last company and even though they are a publicly traded company they are running like a start up. CRAZY!!
So while I knew the grass wasn't greener, it still isn't what I expected. So if you guys could send me some positive energy that things pick up I would SO appreciate it!!
Now onto today's card. It just occurred to me that summers end is nearly upon us. Not sure what gave it away... the cooler temps or that the kids are back in school. LOL!
My card actually came together fairly easy. I had some scraps of this great beach paper from Flair Designs on my desk. I have hoarded this stuff for years and I actually still have an entire piece left! Don't laugh - you guys know exactly what I mean. I let the patterned paper do all of the work for me - like the waves behind my image. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions - It's a Banner Day 2 & coordinating die. I have always loved fancy sentiment tags and this set does that and more for me! I took one of my yellow Copics to shadow the inner part of the sentiment cut out. Can you tell?
Summer may be on it's way out, but honestly I'm not sad. Because one of my favorite holidays is right around the corner - HALLOWEEN!!! And let me tell you the images that All That Scraps has in store for you are going to make you SCREAM!!! (in a good way!)
I hope you enjoyed my final nod to summer. See you all tomorrow for another fun Sketchy Thursday!
Sending you Sunshine:
