Summer Buddies

     Those of you who follow my blog and visit regularly will understand why this particular post is such a perfect reflection of what I'm doing today.  lol  Yep, I'm at the beach instead of home in the heat.

     Do you remember those childhood days when you met a new buddy for the first time while you were on vacation or even just a day at the beach and suddenly you were BFFs?  Even if you never saw that buddy again, it was BFF for that day or week or whatever span of time covered the friendship.  I kinda miss those days.  :-D

     This image is from AuroraWings and I love it!  It was fun to color and makes me think of carefree childhood days.

     I used my ProMarkers to color those darling pups, then cut and embossed it with a dies from Sue Wilson.  I found scraps of beige and cocoa brown CS, cut them into strips, and made the background for my card.  Before adding the image piece, I used satin-edged, sheer ribbon (also a scrap), wrapped it around the card front and tied it with a granny knot.  I trimmed the ends into a short diagonal.

     That's all I have for today but I want those of you stuck in the heat wave to think of me and how marvelous the weather is along the California coast.  Aren't you jealous?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
