Summer time, summer time, sum-sum-summer time

Okay, sing with me now! You can sure tell it's summer time here. HOT, HOT, and HOT. I can't tell you when we had rain last. When I watch the news I pray that the tropical storms will head for Indiana. Tomorrow we are predicted at 102. On a good note I picked a bowl of green beans last night, my first two tomatoes and a jalapeno pepper. Not bad for still being in June.
My card tonight is all about summer time. This hot weather makes me think about the beach. We aren't anywhere near a beach here in Indiana but I always associate the summer and being at the beach. We do have a big lake nearby but I haven't been to the beach there in a very long time. So here's my summer time card.

Bunches of birthdays coming up and I am just about out of cards so I put summer time and birthdays together. I used the colors on the flip flop to accent the card and added some gems. It's difficult to see but I scored the edges on three sides with two lines about 1/8th inch apart. It gives it a framed look. A very CAS card and it came together very quickly since I had the image already colored. So I am entering these challenges:
Don't forget about the Outlawz 2000 Member Party going on right now. They have extended it a week to accommodate those on vacation. So come join the fun!
Thanks for stopping by tonight. I hope you are staying cool or dry wherever you are. We are on the down-side of the work week and I am ever so grateful for that. Take care!
