Happy Monday

I thought I would post something warm and cheery for a Monday morning. Ah, yes, our family is definitely missing those wonderful beaches in Hawaii. We actually saw some golden retrievers go out on the surf boards doing "paddle surfing". Is there anything that those retrievers can't do....our Lucy (Havanese breed) spends 90% of the day curled up in a ball on the couch....
I had this little scrap of girl friday patterned paper left and had to use it! I love the mixing of really fun patterns in this paper collection. I had to use this "B" somehow as the pattern totally mimicked the pattern in the little girl's swimsuit!
This is another Sara England design for Cornish Heritage Farms. I love these as they are simple line art which gives me a lot of play room with my copics.
Here is the really close shot of the coloring. I went in afterward and added some spica pen highlights to the sand. Here are all the card details:

Here is a quick picture of the lemon poppyseed cake we enjoyed yesterday. Yummm.

Enjoy your Monday!

Hi Sherie, Nice job as always on the coloring!! I wanted to email you but could not get through on my computer. So I am sending you my email and hope you can take a minute and send me your email so that I can get a message to you before you come to Calgary. My name is Jeanne and I work at the north Scrapbooker's Paradise and have been teaching copic classes since doing my certification with you last year. My email is jeanne_new@msn.com - I just want to share a couple things with you before Calgary if you have time. I will see you at Camp Croppin for sure!! Look forward to seeing you again.
