Coffee of the Day - German Chocolate Cake
..... but if you live here in northeast Ohio, you know better than to go in the Lake! grins! I was reading on Yahoo one day a few weeks ago that our nearest beach is one of the most polluted in the entire world. isn't that just so sad? shortly after we moved here we learned of all the mutant critters that live in Lake Erie, so we soon told the boys, you can go to the beach, just don't go in the water! after living in Florida for 10 years, the beaches took a bit of getting used to, since they are made of rock rather than the sand I was used to. the rocks grind down to a fine sand, too, but it's just different.
anyhow, I want to share a card today that I made just to make a card. finally finished a BIG project that had to get mailed out no later than today, so am very thankful that is underway courtesy of the US postal service. will share more about that a bit later.....
so needless to say, it was high time to make a card for funsies!
I saw this pretty image over at A Day for Daisies, so decided to make a little beachy card with it. the sentiment is from Create with TLC, papers are Authentique Fresh, flower is Prima, vintage buttons are from my stash, as is ribbon and silver twine. the cute flip flop charm is an older one from Whimsy. they are no longer available, but there are plenty of other cute ones you can find here.
the water is covered in shimmer frost spray, but I actually painted it on. the card base was first spritzed with my SU! ink squirty tool and a sahara sand marker, then sprayed with pearl glimmer mist.
blog candy is going to wait until next month, which is actually only a few days away. hold on and you will find out why. :)
