At The Beach

Happy Sunday everyone.  I know it has been a week since I last posted, but we finally got our grandbaby.  She was born on Wednesday and is just beautiful.  And believe it or not she picked her due date to come into this world. 

Now on to other things.  It is my understanding that Google Reader will be going away July 1.  So, I have switched to Bloglovin.  It was very simple to switch all the blogs I follow over.  You can follow me now with Bloglovin too.  Just click on the "Follow Me with Bloglovin" button on the sidebar.  I still have Google Reader, so we will see what happens next week.

Now on to my card for today.  I went with a summer and beach theme.  I used a cutie from Phindy's Place.  She is called Summer Bare and I cut her out with my Cameo.  Just perfect for the beach theme.  I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge. 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock - CS is SU Calypso Coral and DP is Summer Soul 6x6 pad by Fancy Pants Designs
Image - Phindy's Place
Twine - Mandarin from The Twinery
Button - From my stash
Copic Markers Used:
