Time to Relax

It is now summer vacation and a time to relax.  It is the time to travel, catch up on reading all those books that are stacked up in the corner, going to lunch with friends, and visiting the local antique shops, and museums.  These things I do love to do.  But some of the best time of summer vacation is just sitting around with friends and relaxing.  No plans, no agenda, no work, just relaxing in the moment.
This is an A2 card.  The patterned paper is from K&Company.  The other papers used are from DCWV.  I cut the lemonade from the JUST BECAUSE CARDS cartridge.  I used yellow glitter glue on the lemon  and Stickles on the rim of the glass.  The ice cubes I created from the packaging of a Cricut cartridge.  I just cut some small pieces of the plastic and ran them through the Xyron so they would stick to the paper.  The little bee is a sticker from Jolee's Boutique.  The Adirondack chairs are cut from the LIFE'S A BEACH cartridge.  I used the EVERYDAY PAPER DOLLS cartridge to cut the sun and the grass.  I added some green Stickles tot he grass so it would not appear to be without dimension.  The sentiment "Relax" is a cut from the PAPER PUPS cartridge.  The ribbon is by the Ribbon Boutique and found at Hobby Lobby.

Well, that is it for this card.  So I am going to kick back and relax!
