Super Saturday!

AAhhhh...the weekend. We had a busy week (busier next week with preschool starting up!) so it feels good to have a lazy morning. I thought this card would be appropriate for today because we are having our annual BBQ this afternoon - and we invited a bunch of the new neighbors too. Fun! We're excited to meet them finally and it's an absolutely beautiful day here.

So...CHEERS! Here's another margarita card I made using DRS Designs stamps. This was a SCS sketch challenge layout, SC175. What a fun one! I wasn't sure about those half circles at first but they really grow on you. The colors are River Rock, Black, Cameo Coral and White. Patterned paper is Basic Grey. I sponged some Soft Sky for the sky and the glass is nestled down in the sandy beach of the Gulf of Mexico. Chunky "salt" glitter on the rim, and I went over the drink with a Stardust glitter pen after after I colored it with Copic markers. You can see that detail in the second picture - had to turn on the scary flast to get the shine to really show up, LOL.

11 people made my day!:
