Where have my posts been for the past few days, you may ask? My card has the answer- beach day! I have been trying so desperately to finish this card that I started last Monday for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, but couldn't seem to get the last details right. I have ripped this card apart so many times and still am not completely satisfied with it, but it's done! I finished it just before we left for a 3 day USA swim meet in Corpus Christi, TX, hence the beach theme.
After driving 8 hours round trip and sitting on metal bleachers for 6 hours each day, only to watch my oldest child swim like ****, I was glad that we had a little beach time and some fresh seafood as solace! We went swimming and sunning at the Mustang Island National Seashore Saturday afternoon and I got some good beach pictures to scrapbook (someday...). I told my kiddos that they couldn't go back to swimming until I got my requisite number of photos, so smile darn it! The water was so warm it was like a bathtub- such a shock after summers on the Jersey shore when 70 degree water is considered "warm"-lol!
The greeting was the hardest part for me and I finally just went with a beachy greeting so the card could be used as a cheer up card or a beach invitation card. The greeting was layered onto a shape die cut from Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip. In the end, it's still not what I envisioned, but tomorrow is Monday and there will be a new Mojo Monday sketch!
Hope you had a great weekend!
