Life is Beachy Keen ... just BeClaws!

It is hot, hot, hot here in Miami!  But I love the summer and having my *babies* home, even if we are as busy now as the school year ~ still gotta squeeze in some time for the beach!

And how appropriate that Deedee's Digis brings you just that - this super darling lil crab in his bucket full of sand :)  You can find him here, but first you'll want to stop by the challenge blog and play along with this week's challenge:  Use Turquoise/Ocean blue, green and pink on your card! 

For my card, I used the Card Patterns sketch for this week :) I paired it with some of my fave My Mind's Eye paper and added some MM flowers in the 3 colors for the challenge.  The sentiment is part of the set and was so cute, I added it off to the side :)

TFL and hope to see you stop by the Challenge Blog!
