Fun in the Sun

Good morning all. 
     It's Monday!  No, I haven't taken any mood altering medications or drunk anything for that matter.  I am just trying to have a more positive attitude.  lol... How am I doing so far? 
     Ok, back to reality.  I had a fantastic weekend and our weather was just as great.  As you all know I was able to take my trip out of town with my co-worker and spend some hard earner cash on crafting goodies!  We had so much fun and we managed to hit 5 stores and eat at P.F. Chang's (a first for me).  Yummy!  I love fresh cooked vegetables that are still crisp and tasty.  Anyway, the only reason I bring it up once again is that I am very happy to say that I was finally able to get a video of my haul loaded onto my YouTube channel.  You can actually hear me talking this time.  Mind you it took 4 more times today and I was very tired when I finally tried for the last time so please forgive the fact that I sound like I don't even know my  name.  lol...
     So for today's card I decided to use some of my new products.  I pulled out this sweet little Saturated Canary digi and added one of the titles from the sticker pack that I purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I don't know why, but my craft paper on the bottom photographed darker than it is.  I had used some stickles on the paper as well as the sand that I colored so that it would really have that gritty feel to it just like the real thing.  Can you see that I did not even use one little scrap of patterned paper? Omword,  I am swoon.  lol... This is a very simple card, but with everything it took to make my haul video I was in the mood for something really simple and to the point.  lol...

I hope you all have a great Monday.  I for one am going to have a busy week once again.  However busy I can not wait until Tuesday when The Greeting Farm will have all of their new stamps for sale.  I love them all !!!
     Speaking of new stamps that are coming out be sure and check out my friend Amy Young's blog today as she is starting her Sweet November Stamps previews today and I know you won't want to miss out on that.  lol... Ok, I am out of here.  Talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

She is sooo cute! I always look at her when I'm shopping SC! I love the beach scene you created for her, kind of wish I was there right now!!! I have some SC images that I have colored up, but I still need to actually get them on a card! My mom wants a few of them framed to hang around her house. Awesome job! Can't wait for the new TGF releases tomorrow, been saving some money....

Will have to check out your video when I get home but this is too cute! Love the sticker you used, I am not good at figuring out how to use them and look right but this is the perfect accent. Awesome card!

It was so fun watching your haul video Lisa and this resulting card is totally fun and cute (even without any patterned paper, LOL)!
I hope that you find some time during your busy week to relax and play a bit... oh and I hope you got to watch Glee tonight too! :)
