Hope you are enjoying your holidays. I would do anything for a relaxing day right now! My strong coffee doesn't seem to be perking me up yet for another day of work.

Love your Ethan card. The orange and green are so much fun and I love the metal embellishments.

Hi Kathie, I hope you are enjoying the summer sun at the beach house. I am a little envious as it is super cold here. Your card is so cute this week. I love how you used the real miniture skate board to show off with your card. I used this image too and I love how you showcased yours. I love those paper clips and brads.
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Kathie!
Hope you're enjoying your summertime at the beach house. Sounds good to me right now with these cold temps in Michigan. Your card is absolutely adorable - I love the colors you've used - so fresh and fun for this image. and your wired embellishments are the perfect finishing touch. Great photos too - love that little skateboard you staged in the photos.

Summer sun? What's that? lol! Here in N.I we have had our coldest winter on record, heavy snow & temps hitting -15. We don't cope well with bad weather, the whole country comes to a standstill, schools close, pipes freeze etc. We had a big thaw a few weeks ago which lead to burst pipes & most of the country had no water for 2 weeks. Hope you are enjoying your hoilday & I love your card, the colours are fab & the image is adorable :)
