The Good Ole Summertime

Hi everyone! I hope your fourth of July celebration was a fun one. Yesterday I worked on a card for the Squigglefly challenge In the good Ole' Summertime. to me summer is all about escaping the heat, and the best way to do that is to relax in a Cool Pool, and this image drawn by Teresa Ward was perfect!

(click to enlarge)

I used copic markers to color and added a bit of stickles to make the water sparkle in the sun. The sentiment was computer generated and I added a couple of light green square gems to either side of it.

Today I am making calls on jobs and sending out resumes. I've also got to get my car into the shop because we noticed a tack was in one of the tires and it was getting low! Wish me luck!
