Floating some love your way...

 Hi everyone! It's certainly hard to get back in the groove after a good weekend and this one could definitely be categorized as good. We were invited up to a friend's lake house, just north of Atlanta on Lake Sidney Lanier (crazy coincidence that this is the name of the middle school my daughter just left in TX!). We had a wonderful day of swimming, eating and boating-both my kids tried water skiing (moderately successful) and tubing (huge fun!). For those of you not familiar with Atlanta, Lake Lanier is a 20 mile long lake formed by damming a portion of the Chattahoochee river- clean, clear water and sandy bottom- definitely awesome! Forgot the camera, so no pics unfortunately:(

I digress- back to the card at hand. I started this card two days before our move began in Houston and stuck all the pieces in my craft room desk drawer for the move. The image is a digi stamp from Zlatoena's Etsy store- I totally {heart} her bunnies! I had been in a super rush when I started it and my coloring was pretty sloppy, so I printed a new image and took a bit more care coloring this one.

I had picked my papers ahead of time from a My Mind's Eye paper pack in my stash and coordinated my coloring to match- much easier than coloring first, especially when one finds out the paper you have in mind is in storage-lol! I die cut some of the elements and used pre-cut pieces that came with the paper pack as accents. I felt like it needed a greeting tag hanging off the button/bow but I wasn't ready to commit to the sentiment until I had an intended recipient- I like to keep my options open for cards until I am ready to send them!

The inside was finished with coordinating papers and a simple greeting that can be used for birthday, hello, pick-me-up card- lots of choices!

That's it for today- hope your Monday is going well!
