Thought for the day -

Good morning everyone! I home today with a sick child so I'm hoping to get alot of play time in before our afternoon doctor appointment. My poor little guy has allergies and this heat and the ragweed have taken it's toll. He is pretty wheezy today.

I have 1 card today to cover 3 challenges and of course to cover Sunshine Monday, which of course means my card was made with an image from Sunshine and Giggles! And what a perfect challenge I have found to use my little Beach Bound stamp. Cute Card Thursday's challenge is to make a beach themed card!! Over at Stamp Something the challenge was to make something representing what you did this summer. We went to Virginia Beach this summer and it was Jordan's first trip to the ocean- he had a ball!

I have used the sketch (challenge 2) from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge. As always, they have provided a great sketch.

I have used 2 images on my card and they really compliment each other and just bring out that great beach feel, hehe. My beach scene is from Whimsie Doodles and my little beach boy, from Sunshine & Giggles, is all equiped with his swim goggles and pail.

I'm ready to head to the beach!

Supplies: Cardstock is Stampin Up, DP and coordinating flowers is from the line Chloe's Closet by Making Memories. I used my cricut to cut my ovals and my sentiment is computer generated.

Well I'm off to check out some more challenges. Hope you have a great Monday.
