"Soak It Up" Tuesday


This is my first 4.25 x 4.25 card I have ever made. I always see them in the SCS gallery and I always wanted to make one that size. They are so much fun and super quick. Its also the first time I break into my new "Hit the Beach" set from MFT. With the temperature hitting around 100 degrees down here there is no other place I'd rather be then at the beach or a pool. I also accented with the MFT "Its Elemental" new release. The card stock is SU Blush Blossom, Bayou Blue, Wasabi, WW, and Basic Grey DP. The ribbon is SU. I colored in the girl and coconut drink with my SU markers..*taking a break from prismacolors" Hope everyone is having a FANTASTIC summer and soaking up the sun!!
Hugs,
Ana

BTW I just finished reading "Water for Elephants" by
Sara Gruen and LOVED it. I you are looking for a good read I highly suggest this book.

What a cute card! I've only made one 4.25 x 4/25 card myself. I like them too.

This is just ADORABLE! Thanks for sharing it with us...of course, that may just mean I need to make another trip to MFT and buy another set. *sigh* Such a rough life - LOL!
