( ** You can enter my birthday candy here **)

Hello crafty friends.  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  I have a summery card to share today.

This image is Sassy Sally & Bellah Head to the Beach.  Don't they make the cutest little couple?  I colored this image with copics and colored pencils and used Glossy Accents on Bellah's nose.  I used a My Favorite Things dienamic to cut out my sun.  I added some hemp cord and buttons.  The sentiment is from the Oh So Beachy stamp set by AmyR.  I used a Memory Box die to cut the scallop border.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hugs, Anita
