Just chillin'

This is what I plan to be doing this week- provided the weather cooperates!! 😆 Tuesday right after work, I am driving to Bethany Beach in Delaware, where my brother and his wife have a house. I am planning on spending the week with them. I was there in May and it rained 24-7 for the whole five days (check out this post if you are interested in my sad tale)

So today's card is to spur on the sun gods to come out and shine on my vacation. Like Winston here, I plan on spending the bulk of my week seating on the beach with a cold beverage and a good book  (presently reading The Outsider by Stephen King).

Today's challenge at Inky Paws is one of my favs- a sketch challenge!! Check out this fun sketch!!

I used a variety of Newton's Nook supplies for today's card. I just love mixing and matching sets!! The sunscape stencil, Winston's Lake House and the sentiments are from Cocktail Mixer. I orginally had the everything mounted on a plain white card base, but it just didn't work for me. I pulled out a cloud folder, used that on the base and voila it was perfect. 

Its all in the tiny details that card are perfected. Such as using crystal stickles on the sun instead of just my glitter pen. I wanted the glitter to be up front in my hot and shining sun! Also, you won't probably notice in the photo, but the ice cubes in Winston's drink have a coating of glossy accents to make them shine.

This is adorable! I love how you used the sketch and put the sentiment on the stipe! So clever! And Winston is adorable in his summer chair in front of the sun!

Love Winston. You made him look like he is just chilling. Jus saying, but I did not miss the fact that his chair is green (the second most beautiful color in the world, we all know that pink is the most beautiful one)! Enjoy your time with your brother and sister-in-law!
