Wicked Wednesday Life's A Beach Reminder

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!
