A Summertime Wish…


Happy Friday everyone!!! My FAVORITE day of the week is normally because I know the weekend is near but today… today a “mini-vacation” is starting!!! Yayyy!!!  Since my son went with my mother-in-law on a FOUR WEEK trip to Alaska (they drove)… we decided it wasn’t quite fair that our daughter was missing out on some “alone time” with us having fun!!  So today, we are starting out at a new (to us) water park we just heard about that is only 1 1/2 hours away!!  AND.. the best part???? It only cost…. are you ready for this… FIVE DOLLARS to get in!!!  What the heck?? They have a wave pool, lazy river, several water slides, kiddie area, etc. and it’s ONLY $5??? Wow!!  And again… 1 1/2 hours away??!!!  We’d be silly NOT to check it out!  As I mentioned yesterday, we have had such hot hot days and this will be just a perfect little get away for us AND her!  She doesn’t know yet… we are planning on just taking off… having hear wear her swim suit, of course, and ending up there!  And, since my husband drives to Illinois and back every night… he took a different route the other day (filling in for someone) and found yet another water park we didn’t know about.  That one is less than an hour away!  So, we are getting wet and staying cool the next three days!


Which brings me to my card.  I had made this a while back and when I looked at it again it REALLY hit me that WOW, that bright yellow just SCREAMS summer!!!  Seems I’ve seen nothing but yellow lately (you know… the sun scorching down on us and all.. hee hee).  My card was created using Theresa Momber’s newest set, “Whimsical Wishes”. 


My card begins with Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion.  I layered in some black and another layer of Wild Dandelion that I ran through my Vagabond using the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I stamped the larger flower from Theresa’s set in Memento ink and colored with my Copic markers.  In the middle of the flower I placed one of the Raindrop Eyelets and then one of the tiny dots in the set as well.  I cut out my image with my Labels 14 Nestabilitie and added a bit of twine around it after sponging on some Memento Dandelion ink. 


I hope you have a fabulous weekend planned and you don’t get TO much sun! 


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! *smile*
