Relaxing at the teaparty

Hi all! Yesterday was a new teaparty and Cindy wanted us to all learn synchronized swimming if you can believe that! I brought another little shy bear who tried to get into the spirit of things, but all that splashing was diluting my tea and making the cookies soggy, so this bear opted to paddle out to the deeper water and relax the day away. As hot as it's been relaxing in a pool of cool water sounds perfect!

This image is Floating Bear and I used Copic markers to color him. The sky was done with chalks. I used some shiny origami paper to cut some flower shapes out of and used that to look like the hot sun shining down on him. A big yellow button in the center completed that.
My sentiment is computer generated.
The "synchronized" part of my card is the two rows of pierced scallops along the sides of the card.
Hope you are having a cool and relaxing day. It's supposed to be another sizzling hot day here!
thanks for looking!
