Beach Frog

     This card really showcases the run of luck my neighbors have been having and I know they'll appreciate it.  They came by last evening to borrow a couple of folding beach chairs, deciding that one last sunny day at the beach before the Autumnal Equinox hits us here in California would be perfect.   We've had such a miserably hot summer that they had opted not to do anything much all summer long so this was to be their one and only day-trip before fall hits.

     An hour ago, I received a text message from them saying that it's cloudy and raining and they wish they had borrowed umbrellas instead of chairs!  lol


     I used ProMarkers to color the image then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  I kept everything very simple, putting the image piece onto a dark blue card front and adding only the two polka-dot bows.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut, matted, and hand cut again.
