"Summertime...and the living is easy..."  this was one of my favorite songs, one that I absolutely could relate to.  I can remember the last few days of school just waiting for Summer to officially begin and freedom!  I loved nothing better than heading to the beach as a teen and working on my tan, of course this is a "no no" now!  Now I avoid the beach from June to September - far too many tourists.  I love working in my flower beds, smelling freshly mown grass and watching my grandchildren splash in the pool.

To celebrate "Summertime", I have a delightful Sara Kay stamped card to share with you today.  Create with TLC's sentiment was just perfect:
Bernadette Admiring Her Flowers

I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils to color Bernadette and chose Basic Grey's Lemonade design paper.  I cut out my card shape with my Grand Calibur and used Spellbinders dies for all my layers and sentiment.  

Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!
