The eagle (or Pixie) has landed and by  the time this posts we should be just about awake after arriving at our destination mid-morning yesterday. And this is how I hope to spend the day (forget the bikini though - don't want to frighten the local population into running for the hills!):
I used:

- A6 cream card blank

-image by Mo Manning from Stamping Bella called 'Little Umbrella', coloured with Pro Markers and it also comes with the sentiment. Die cut and layered onto a piece of blue card which I hand cut by tracing round the die then wielding me little scissors. The birdies were just hand drawn after I'd done the clouds using a template, small duster brush and TH 'Tumbled Glass' 

- all SU backing card is 'Marina Mist' - any mist here and I wants me money back.

- patterned paper is from Echo Park's 'Hello Summer' paper pad and 
just a tickle of Glossy Accents on the sunspecs and parts of the cocktail glass.

Hope you are having a wonderful vacation...soaking up the sun and hopefully getting a wee bit of a tan!

Maybe you are even drinking a mini margarita! Or a very large one!

Have to scare off the girls dancing in the fountain!!!

Well, glad to hear you got there safe and sound but not sure how safe you will be wandering around like that, Miss.
Fantastic card, beautifully coloured and only one downside, where is the flower in your hair?!
