THANKS from sunny Florida

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

This post finds my family and I early in our vacation to Florida. We're having a great time on the beach, as you will see in some of the later photos in this post. My card, as you can guess, was created quite some time time for creating on the beach, ya know! :) I glittered up the 'thanks' sentiment from my Cuttlebug Olivia font (out of PTI's Summer Sunrise cardstock) and layered three different PTI Pretty Pastels papers after punching them with my Fiscars border punch. The cardstock and ribbon are Lemon Tart (PTI). Simple and easy card, but I really like the way it turned out. I must send out a special THANKS to Jan and Tracy for visiting and leaving me comments last week. If it wasn't for you two, I think I would have fallen into a sudden and deep state of depression with no other visitors after months of blogging. (OK, I'm exaggerating!!) I do appreciate you two and hope to continue to hear from you!! (And YOU, Susan!!) I don't think I have anything to post next week as we will still be vacationing and I have nothing else photographed. To keep myself from going into withdrawal, I'll probably continue to post some vacation photos. I do have a special project ready for the following week in The Shabby Tea Room when I get to Guest Design!!

Here are Jonah and Jillian checkin' out some sea critters at the Mote Marine Aquarium. We love this place and had a great time there today!!
We're pretty big into creating in the sand. So far our castle has survived the tide so we've worked on it both days we've been here. We've already got plans for additions tomorrow.

This is how we left the beach this evening...another beautiful sunset. I'm so thankful to have a chance to spend this week with my family at one of my favorite places EVER! (But I sure am missing my best shark tooth hunting buddy, Daddy!!)

Have a great day!
