It's Happy Hour Somewhere!

How about a little COLOR tonight? This bright and happy card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #64. If you have a minute or two, you really should try this sketch...or at least blog on over to Beate's blog "Fresh & Fun" and look at all the terrific cards she and others have posted. It's FUN to see how each one is quite different, even using the same layout.

My pina colada "refreshment" is a $1 Michaels stamp and the sentiment is by Inkadinkado. I've used Stampin Up cardstock ~ marigold morning and wild wasabi. The patterned yellow plaid paper is by Bo-Bunny Press and the "happy hour" green paper by Flair Designs. I've colored my image with prismacolor pencils. The new Stampin Up scalloped edge punch is what I used on the top and bottom edge.

This was really a super simple card...especially since I had the sketch to start out!

Our weather the past few days has been unbelievably beautiful with temps in the 70's! I know it's not going to last much longer, in fact I think I heard the four letter word S.N.O.W. in the forecast later this week. Let's hope they're wrong again. :)

Have a GREAT week!

Cute card, Pam. I saw this earlier and whizzed past it, not realizing it was yours!!! That DP is very cute! Maybe I should have a pina colada--it would make me feel better!

LOL! This is seriously such a great card and what I needed right now, Pam. Thanks for the smiles.
