Beach Umbrella

     I did a lot of playing this week with my old House Mouse stamps and summer themes.  Summer officially arrives this weekend but in my hometown, we're slated for another heat wave stretching over the next 4 days with temperatures over 100F each day.  It's definitely time to learn something from this darling (and oh,so comfortable!) mouse and head for the beach! 

Colored w ProMarkers and gel pens
Cut w cross stitched die from Tutti Designs
Sand castle and sentiment = Helz Cuppleditch dies
Dotted dp also Helz Cuppleditch
(The Helz Cuppleditch supplies were a prize for winning a challenge more than 6 month ago.  They had to be saved for a summer theme.  :-D)
Ribbon was a scrap bit tied into as knot

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
