Don't Be A Beach - #162

I could SOOO use a vacation to a beach, sipping a drink with a little umbrella.  I hear Bora Bora is nice this time of year.  Sadly, I will have to make due with the backyard, getting wet from my kids running through the sprinkler and the dog helping herself to my iced tea.  Sooo not the same!

I'm making another card for SSMIS.  This card is actually ON-TIME!!  Woot, woot!!  Tracie was our July hostess and she challenged us with this Dearie Dolls image and those amazing little chipboard sunglasses.  I created a little beach scene with my dies and copics. 

I started out using the Try Stamping on a Tuesday sketch but deviated from it ... a tad as you can see!
