Hi friends!!! My oldest had her last day of school today which officially marks the summer season for us here at our house. Hooray!! No more making lunches, homework, projects and early mornings scrambling for outfits! To celebrate, I felt I needed to make a card for her - it's been kind of a rough year for her with the move, but she did exceedingly well with all the changes and managed to come home with straight A's!! I really couldn't have asked for a better daughter and I'm so proud of her!!
I had gotten this image from a sweet friend of mine awhile back and hadn't done anything with it - thought it would be perfect. Jimmy Buffett and Jimi Hendrix lent some inspiration as I was coloring it and it took me back to a place with tall umbrella drinks and warm sand between my toes - lazy days at the beach with nothing to do but work on my tan.
