Soakin' up the sun...

Hi guys,
     Yes, I know that once again I promised a wonderful week of cards and whatnot, but the fact is I did make a few cards and even uploaded them.  My problem is that once again, I have had a verrrrrry long week and I haven't had five minutes to even get to my computer let alone time to check out everyone's blogs and play along on any of the challenges that I wanted to.  (Yes, I would consider this whining, but hey it's my blog and I'll whine  if I want to,  lol)
     So with that being said I will get to one of this week's favorite cards that I made.  I wanted to enter it into The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge for last week, but I just checked and it was until yesterday that I had the chance to play along.  hump!!
     I pulled out Yoga Anya and decided I wanted her to look like she was relaxing at the beach while eating a yummy Popsicle.  I used a few of my dies and added the sun as well as some awesome rub-ons from 'ep'.  I realize that the sky is usually blue, but all in all I like how this turned out.  I think the paper pad from MME and the rub-ons from ep worked really well together.
     Ok, time for me to head to bed as we are getting up at 6:00 to go for our walk before the 100 degree weather decides to show up for the day.  I hope you are all well.
     I do want to thank everyone that is still hanging in there with me and I soooooo hope to get back to blogging everyday very very soon.
     Talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Such a beautiful card Lisa. I love the cute image and such a fabulous design, the way you have created the waves looks so effective.
I hope you are managing to stay cool in all that heat you are having there at the moment.

Yoga Anya is adorable, now I'm wishing I had bought her when I had the chance! The inside of your card, as usual, is adorable in multi-colors!!!!
