Good morning everyone. 
I am heading to work for my half day and I am sooooo happy that I finally have my computer again.  Our computer company has been having problems off and on (more ON) since Saturday.  The only reason that my post was up and running Tuesday was because I had scheduled it Monday night before I went to bed.  Grrrrr!  I really hate paying for  Internet and then not being able to use it.  Yes, I am aware that they do a great job and I shouldn't complain but Grrrr!  I really hate it when my computer isn't working.  lol...
Ok, I will quite complaining and get to today's card.   I had so much fun last month being  The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Face on the challenge blog and Casing cards that I thought that I would use this sketch that I have had on my computer for quite sometime now.   I wish I could remember were I found it, and I did know who it was by.  However, I seem to have deleted it from my computer once I made this card.   I swear I don't know where my brain is sometimes.   lol...  So, if this was your sketch I am truly truly sorry for not knowing your name  to give you full credit for it.  It is a great sketch and I just loved the simple yet awesomeness of it.  I also decided that as I did not have the pearls or gems that I wanted to use with my card I would put my Stickles ( I have a ton of them) to use and make them work as my bling on this one.  Of course I grabbed Cheeky Beach and her beach ball.  She just adds such fun to any card. All in all I am very pleased with how it turned out.
Alrighty,  I better get a move on.  Have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs,  Lisa G

Glad to hear that your computer troubles are over, we rely on them so much that it always stinks whenever they act up on us. And enjoy your half day... looks like it is going to be nice and sunny here! :)
