This is what I should be doing.....

Yes, this is definitely what I need.....to relax in a pool with a drink!! What a few days I've had. I won't go into details....but I started this card on Thursday & just finished it last night! Life has gotten in the way once again!!




I was sad that I hadn't received my new High Hopes stamps yet, so I dug out one of my all time favorite HH stamps......Choppers Chilaxin'. I think this stamp (along with the Chilax sentiment) was one of my very first stamps I got as a dt member. It will always be one of my favorites!!

I colored Choppers with Prismas.....added Crystal Effects to his glass (I decided he is drinking a Sonic cherry limeade, in honor of our very first Sonic opening soon!!!), sunglasses, & water (I also added some glitter to the water). The sun is sponged with Colorbox Yellow Citrus chalk ink. I used SU's Real Red, Bazzill Bling & some unknown....but gorgeous...designer paper from my stash. Used a few of my Nesties.....added some Primas & leaves....& frayed some ribbon to go behind the sentiment.





Here's a closeup of Choppers.....could he be any more relaxed? I mean.......CHILAXED???


And I just had to share this pic of my fur babies.....they love shoes, lol. I thought Jake was looking a bit cranky there (he's on the left)........






So it's a good thing it was nap time!! Well, he IS almost 14.....he gets tired easily :)




Don't forget to enter my blog candy, which will end on Friday. The good news is I did receive my new High Hopes goodies, & while I didn't get the stamps yet that I originally ordered for my blog candy, I *did* receive a few extras of the new release!! So I'll be doing another candy soon after this one is done. Maybe for my birthday next month.......or maybe to celebrate (or lament, depending on your circumstance) the beginning of the new school year....will have to think on that.....

Thank you all for visiting....& for being patient during my creative slump! I go through these every so often & there's just nothing I can do about it. Hopefully this card will get me going in the right direction again!!

Your cats are just beautiful. Our oldest is an orange tabby as well and just turned 15 in March. You wouldn't know it though!
