Soaking up the Sun

German Phrase of the Day: Das wetter ist komish gewesen. = The weather has been strange. Yesterday morning we had that large thunderhead which made it as dark at 11am as it usually is at 10:30PM, then this morning at 5:30 we heard thunder in the next town over, and next thing I know it sounds like someone is pelting large rocks at our window! We had hail the size of golf balls, and when your room is in the eaves of a house with a slate roof, it gets REALLY loud when those things hit and roll down the roof. However, we got off lucky. I have a friend in the next village over who had a skylight broken, and another window crack! Crazy!!!

Today's card was created earlier this week using this week's sketch on the My Favorite Things SCS forum. Cindy creates these awesome sketches every week, and I was so glad to get to play along again! I picked the colors using my SU! color wheel, and went for it. The main image is stamped on stamper's select white cs and colored in with SU! markers. The tropical drink (which looks good...perhaps I can get that virgin?) is punched with my 1" and layered on 1 1/4" punches and popped up with a pop dot. I rounded the end of my sentiment strip with my word window punch. It was a fun quick card!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone...gotta go upstairs and stamp! :-)
