Life is Good

Life really is good - at least most of the time.  

This little guy is taking life easy.  I'd love to be wherever he is taking it easy too.  Maybe sipping on a margarita instead of attempting the ice cream though.  I couldn't even enjoy that ice cream here right now though because it's so hot it'd melt before I could take a bite.

Anyway, the penguin and palm tree are from Penguins in Paradise (My Favorite Things).   The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.   I used some distress inks to make the clouds, paper pieced the swimming trunks, created "sand" with some designer paper, and added some clear crystals.

This card followed the sketch challenge at My Favorite Things so I'll enter it there.


Thanks for stopping by.........

Okay, I am ready... Let's go to the beach! Don't forget that cool drink. This is so stinkin cute, Lynn. One set I do not have yet, but I might work on that! Perfect sand.

I'm with you, let's go somewhere and get umbrella drinks and chill out. He is so cute in his little trunks that match the side panel and eating his ice cream. Fun card!

This is so so cute with that penguin's paper-pieced shorts! Love the billowy clouds in the sky too - something PA hasn't seen in quite a few days! Fun card, and I'd love to join you for a margarita on some deserted island! Bottoms up!!!

I would still suggest you have a Margherita, Lynn.

Your card is so so so cute and it makes such a perfect scenery the the pretty palm trees and the penguin, sand and clouds. The clear crystals look so perfect.

Love,
Monica

Life is good, Lynn, but it would be even better with a trip to this island paradise! Love the sand and paper pieced swim trunks! Fantastic coloring too!

Great take on that sketch, Lynn, and I love, love, LOVE your sand! Our heat dropped into the low 80s for today and tomorrow and I'm grateful for it. But the heat will be back for the rest of the week and then you'll hear me complaining again. lol
