It's been a good few weeks since I've spent time in the craft room. I'm usually a hide-in-the-air-conditioning kind of girl in the summer but for some reason this year I've been wanting to spend more time outside. The weather's been gorgeous for the most part and my friend, Michael, basically told me, "If you're not going to make use of your waterfront then I will!" He planned a birthday dock party for me and comes around regularly to drag me out for a swim. I'm loving it. We practically lived down at the dock when I was a kid but in the last few years, especially since our last two dogs haven't been interested in swimming, we haven't been down there much. I'm glad that has changed this year.
The casualty of that change is that I'm making fewer cards but the weather will turn eventually and cards will take priority again. I managed to make a few cards today. This one is for The Card Concept and I think it fits into the Clean and Layered category. The adorable pooch in the inspiration photo spoke to me immediately and I dug out my Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and these fun sunglasses from MFT. This guy definitely looks ready to party so I thought the Reverse Confetti sentiment was perfect for him.
