Lazy Days in Spring

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. Later today, the Kinder Class I work in will be taking a trip to the Farm. The students are super excited about seeing all the farm animals. I do hope it doesn't get to hot tomorrow but I know it will be a great day.

However, I wanted to showcase a card I made the other day. Since Spring time brings sunny days, it could also bring rainy days. Last Friday, we had a really bad rain storm. There was thunder and hail. But this week we have been have some nice weather. I made a cute card describing both rain and lazy days. LOL

Lazy Days in Spring 

 For my card, I decided to create some tear art for the grass and sand. Then I inked the beige card stock with Desert Sand Momento Ink.
 I used the Simply Charmed to cut out the clouds. The bigger cloud is measured at 1.5 and the other 2 mini clouds is measured at 1-1/4. Then, I inked the sides of the clouds with Ocean Blue Momento Ink. Then, I added some bakers twine and attached the sentiment "Lazy Days" using K. Andrews "Splash-tastic Summer Stamp Set. "

 I added this adorable beach chair laying by the sand on a rainy day. The brad comes from the Eyelet Outlet & Brad Company. I purchased these during the Scrapbook Expo.
I hope everyone loved checking out my card for today. It was fun to make. One more thing I would like to let you know, right now K. Andrews has a 20% discount at her store/site wide.
