Go Away Winter Blahs!

This is my March card for the Sisterhood monthly swap. When I found out the theme was something vacationy(probably not a word, but hey I'm also not an English major). The first thing that popped into my mind was the beach. Of course it would need to be on some remote area if I were to go to the beach. Why? Well let's just say there might be some calls into marine control about a beached whale. Anyway, I would love to loose my weight and go to a beach this year with my family. I would especially like to go to the Outerbanks. I've never been there and it sounds like so much fun. I made this card with Fun in the Sun from Hanna Stamps, MyMindsEye DP, and copics. The sand-dollar is a Martha Stewart Punch. Oh and you know I love raindots. I put some on Hanna's sunglasses to give them some dimension. Poor Hanna had her arm cut off from about the elbow down. I just didn't know how to handle it, so chopping it off and adding embellies seemed like the thing to do. Enjoy!

She didn't need that arm. She just needs to stand there and not fall over. :D Fabulous card Mary. By the way, you need to play the Friday challenges at HS....you would get noticed for sure. :) And then we can laugh at the ta-tas together. hehehhe
