Island Post

Happy Friday!
Does this ever look like a place I'd like to be this weekend. Sitting under that palm tree..listening to the waves...tall drink in hand..perfect! Care to join me? Just as long as I don't have to shop for a swim suit. I don't much care for shopping and shopping for swim suits is like the 7th ring of hell. I think I'd rather bang my head against the wall until I'm unconscious, lol.

Anyway, this perfect little island scene reminds me of a postcard so that's the direction I went. After stamping the beach scene and coloring w/ copics, I used a postage square die but I resized it to make it more rectangular. I stamped more beach items inside a smaller postage sq to make the little stamp and the greeting is on the turq panel. I used a random dot image to stamp the bottom of the card. It measures 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Meet you on the beach & have a great weekend!
