You Float My Boat

It's summertime and the livin' is easy...

As I type I'm delighting in a delicious, frosty treat fresh from the ice cream truck. Mmmmm...  Summer reminds me of sunny days at the beach, too, and that's what I was thinking about when I made this card.

I love this stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  My dad used to take me out of school on the occasional Friday and we would go sailing on our little 14-foot sailboat.  Afterwards we would hit the ice cream store (I never mentioned that part to Mom because it was usually around 5:00 or so - too close to dinnertime).  Good memories!

Anyway, I made this for the Lawn Fawn challenge #32 which is a fun, beachy color challenge.  When I added the color for the sky and water I was planning on putting a piece of cardstock over the whole thing that had a circle cut out of the middle to show the water/sky.  But I reconsidered and just went with what was there; it works.

I hope you're having a wonderful summer.  Thanks for stopping by!
