Sunny Days

I just love the days of summer for many reasons.
1.  I am out of school.
2.  I get to go out for lunch.  It is much better than the school lunchroom.
3.  Time at the beach..
4.  Summer reading, sewing, and crafts..
5.  Eating fresh vegetables and fruit.
And the list goes on and on.  Here is my card about the LAZY HAZY CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER.

This is a 6.5" x 5" card.  I cut the palm tree and bikinis from the LIFE'S A BEACH  cartridge.  The sun is from GYPSY WANDERINGS, and the Sunny Days is a cut from the Cricut Lite CELEBRATE WITH FLOURISH.  The grass at the bottom of the card is from the EASTER 2110 cartridge. 

The paper I used for the palm tree leaves is from K&Company.  All other paper is from The Colorbok.  I used a cute Peachy Keen Stamp face for the sun and added rosy cheeks with some chalk and used a white gel pen for the teeth.  I also used yellow and orange glitter glue to make the sun shine!  The bikinis are hanging from some tan and white twine.  

And the finishing touch is the three pair of flip flops from Jolee's Boutique.  This is such a happy card for a happy time of the year, SUMMER!
