It's Cards Like This...

did you notice the sun charm?
...that can get your friends and loved ones really ticked off.  That is if you're like me and have moved to a sunny location and your friends (soon to be former friends) are digging out three and a half feet of snow.  With summer finally approaching it may be safe to send it, but even last month it was a little iffy.

Cuppie's hitting the beach.  Ah... I can smell the cocoa butter even as I type.  Doesn't she have a beautiful tan?  I'm so jealous, I sit in the sun and all I get is freckles, but the freckles look a bit better than my otherwise fish belly white complexion.  I am so pale that one time when my doctor was examining my legs I jokingly said he better put on his sunglasses and he replied that I could stand to get a little sun on them.  I am seriously pale.  But I digress...

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - Taylored Expressions "A Year of Sweets 2" and "It's a Banner Day 3"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" for cuppie, "Ladybug" for banner and sentiment
paper - Me & My Big Ideas "Ellen - Starfish"; Stampin' Up "Bermuda Bay" and  "Crushed Curry" cs; Neenah Classic Crest Natural White
miscellaneous - copics; Banner Day 3 Taylored dies; Queen & Co "Sunflower Yellow" rhinestones; Recollections brads and mini brads; Nesties circle and inverted circle dies; baker's twine; charm; sewing machine
