Many people embrace autumn -- the crisp mornings, the changing colours, cozy sweaters. I don't. I hold on to summer for as long as possible. Like with this card:
This is for my step-son's birthday, so it was a collaborative effort. My husb suggested a card with a deck chair. Amazingly, a stamp set with a deck chair was clearing at Michaels! I used some great paper from Echo Park for the sky, but then realized I had nothing to match it for the water. Luckily, Caribbean twine works perfectly... and the name's appropriate, too! I used more Echo Park paper to piece the beach umbrella. My husb also contributed what the sentiment should say and the idea of the beer mug. We thought of a champagne bottle in the sand beside the chair, but I didn't have anything to the right scale.
So as the days get cooler, I'll just imagine myself in this little scene... ☺
