Wishing you sunshiney days!

Hello all, 
Busy week, we closed on our second home on Friday the 13th.  I'm so excited to get in there and start painting.  I was able to get one challenge in, Throwback Thursday.  You are to use the Doodlecharm cart and the color blue.  I made one card that is just so girly and realized that it didn't meet the requirements.  I'll post that one later.  I then thought I have some retirement cards to do so I made a card for that.  I used the coconut tree and sponged the background.  I just love summer cards, I get to make sponged ocean backdrops.  I really love this card.  I hope you love it too!
