Let's Celebrate!

Hello crafty peeps. It's Friday! Woo hoo! It's been raining for what seems like 40 days and 40 nights here on the east coast. What better weather to be creating in the ol' craft room?! I've made a card and it fits a few challenges too!

 and the inside:

Yes I know some of the splotches don't match the card stock I used for the drink. In hindsight, I should have mixed a bit of abandoned coral in with the picked raspberry ink. I bet that would have worked. (face palm) It's all good though, since I've given this card to my friend (and pool team captain) and she loved it. So there. LOL!

That's it for me. Short and sweet this time around. Thanks for visiting!
