How are you? Has your town been having record breaking heat over the past couple of days too? If you find yourself in the middle of this heat wave I hope you've found the perfect way to stay cool. I have to be honest and say that all I want to do is sit in a pool and sip a cool drink...problem is is that we don't have a pool, which just leaves me with sipping a drink (or two!) LOL!
If you're a follower of my blog you might have heard me mention my fondness for Mad TV's Cabana Chat skits with Dixie Wentsworth...well, those skits prompted me to buy this cabana stamp a few years back. I think it's the perfect sentiment, on soooooooooooooooo many levels! Maybe I like the skits because Dixie is sitting poolside with a tall drink?!! Think about it....
After stamping the sentiment I thought I'd use a small beach chair image to make a "sea glass" tile by dipping the stamped CS in clear embossing ink and UTEE three times. I'm pleased with the way that it turned out.
The minute I saw Jen's Sketch 59 at Deconstructed Jen this week I knew I wanted to use this ATC as the focal point for her challenge. I'm also entering this in the Totally Paper Crafts challenge this week which is Here Comes Summer. I wish you could see the DP on the bottom of the card which is hallographic waves and very cool looking!
