Perfect Sailing Weather!!!


OK, first off, what do you think of this?!  Um yeah... this is what a Seattle summer can be like,  quite nice and really it should be.  We do get a lot of Fall/Winter/Spring rain, so i think we deserve it.  My fave thing to do when the weather is this nice is head toward the water.  Edmonds has the nicest beach, i just love it!  With the ferry docks near by and a park at the other end, fab!  In fact, here is a pic of my daughter playing at the beach last week when the sun was out.  Awww...

Since the weather is going to be just perfect for water and sailing I thought I'd share my Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge card with you!  This weeks theme is anything goes, so how perfect to pay an homage to the sun with this fun sailboat.  I love the current nautical trend and I had to get this "WiseDies" set from PS- so fab. (I love that name, Kim is so funny- WiseDies- it cracks me up every time!)  I was also excited to use my new Dear Lizzy paper, this ombre background DP is fab and I love the color combos of the other pages that I used for the sails.  I also used some woodgrain paper, perfect for the hull of a ship! 
I hope you likey and do something fun in the sun this weekend!

Super cute card! Really adore your mix of patterns. Being from Kansas, we're a little landlocked. So, I'm a little jealous of your beach days ;). Have a great weekend!
