Hi All!

As Wisconsin is finally getting summer weather, I am ready to head to the lake, relax, and dip my feet in the water.  Walking on the beach and getting warm sand in my toes is so much fun...until you put your sandals back on.   ;)   Then sitting down and relaxing with a good book makes the wonderful day complete!

This Stampin' Up Summer by the Sea stamp (retired) reminds me of wonderful days had, and to come.   It makes me smile.  I embossed the woman in white embossing powder.  I edged the card with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The paper, ribbon, and brads are from my stash.  I made this card a bit smaller so it will fit into a A2 envelope, even with the tag hanging over the edge. The tissue tape is from Tim Holtz.

I am entering this card in a few challenges:
