Happy Monday hoarding card-makers ... hope your weekend was long and fabulous!

And here's my take:

There's still time to play along! Clicky HERE for all of the challenging deets.

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the colorful product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooo, this weekend Sheila and I decided to head out to our favorite beach.

"Did you bring sunblock?" Sheila asked as we settled into our beach chairs.

"Of course. Need some?"

"What did you bring?" Sheila asked.

"SPF 45." I replied.

"Not strong enough. I wanna squeeze the tube and a sweater comes out."

Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!
