Sweet Sketch Wednesday...

I am at my family's Beach House in Pocasset, Cape Cod for two weeks and totally enjoying relaxing.  I can't believe that I have been napping daily - not like me but I guess I needed it!!  The weather has been Hot and Humid, but there is always a breeze in our side yard blowing in off the marsh.  A great reading spot on a hot summer's day.  Unfortunately, the humidity has kept me from crafting.  One year I tried and all my envelopes sealed themselves...  Live and learn...

Yesterday the humidity broke and I made a card I needed for a birthday using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.   I used a cute image from Saturated Canary and colored her in with Copics.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I added Bakers Twine from The Twinery, A pretty blue button from CtMH and some white shear ribbon to finish the card off.  The image is fussy cut and mounted with Pop Dots.

Unfortunately, but I guess fortunately, I am commuting up to work today through Thursday when my real vacation begins.  At least I have computer access to get this card posted... right?

Thanks so much for visiting my Blog!!
