Relax and Enjoy

Happy 4th of July! :) This may not be a red, white and blue creation, but I thought it was festive enough to suffice as my holiday post. LOL

This card uses the newly released Catch Some Rays by MFT! When I started playing with this stamp set, I found myself not wanting to put it down. It is just SO cute and screams summer... not MY summer, but summer nonetheless. *giggle* #1, you will NOT find me "lounging" by the pool. I jump in as quickly as possible hoping to hide myself in the water. :) #2, you will NOT find me in a bikini. :) I have "graduated" into one of those cute little *skirt-like* bottomed things. Truth be told, I would rather wear a sweatsuit, or some scuba gear, but that is against pool regulations. :)

The image was stamped in Memento brown and colored with Copic markers. I wanted the area under the lounge chair to look like one of those intricate tiles designs that can sometimes be found in pool areas, and the Marakech patterned paper by Basic Grey fit the bill perfectly! To get the little sentiment flag to flare, I formed it with my fingers and then used some red line dimensionals to boost up the center area.

Did you know that July marks MFT's THIRD birthday! ALSO, Kim (THE MFT Lady!), celebrates her birthday in July! Happy Birthday Kim and MFT! :)
