What A Beautiful Day!

Hello, my friends!

I hope you've all been enjoying a wonderful week!
We had snow early in the week and are now enjoying some very balmy temperatures.
It put me in the mood to make a balmy weather card! :o)

I found this sweet image at Tiddly Inks and it really appealed to me.
Perhaps because I really wish I had a swimsuit like hers.
Wouldn't it make the beach a more comfortable place? lol

Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp;
Die: Whimsy Stamps - Lighthouse;

Boy! She is ready for the warm rays! Love your card my Dear!!

Natalie said...

Super cute card, Nancy! Yeah, I agree I would feel much better if I had a suit that would cover up more flesh, as it is now I just don't go there!! Roll up the pant legs and get the feet wet is about as exciting as it gets!!

Tracy said...

Ah the good old days when everyone was covered up. LOL She's a cutie and pairing her with the lighthouse cut looks great. It's rained so much today I could probably take a dip in my yard. :-) Hugs!

Adorable card Nancy! I'd be great with a bathing suit like that! LOL That's a great lighthouse die cut!

Christine L said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! And yes, I'd like a swimsuit like hers too!! It'd cover a LOT!

Fabulous card, Nancy. I love your twine tied lighthouse. I have to agree that swimsuits like that would make me feel much more comfortable than something that makes me feel like I am standing outside in my under wear. :o
