Swim dude...

Hard to believe I even made this card today... it was far too chilly for swimming around here!  But isn't he cute?  Nothing says summer like fins & floaties :)  And look at that hair... crazy.  I always pictured this little dude a redhead... don't ask... I don't know :)


Stamps:  Summer Boys, That Guy (retired)
Other:  Crystal Lacquer, foam tape, misc. ribbon (HL), circle punches
Copics:  E00, E11, E57, YR04, YR18, YR23, YG01,YG05


I added a little lacquer to his goggles, fins & floaties... adds a little sumpin' sumpin' I think.


Well, tomorrow I've got a full day prepping & serving at the Shrine Ladies' Spring Tea... I even baked cookies today!  {GASP}  While you are hauling your hiney back into your chair after THAT newsflash, I'll share the super easy recipe for Lemon Crackle Cookies:

1 lemon cake mix
1 egg
1 8 oz. tub Cool Whip
1 Tbs. lemon extract (optional... but oh so good)

Mix together, drop into powdered sugar & roll into balls, place on greased cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (14-16 minutes if using stoneware)

Yeah... I know... not REALLY that homemade, but at least I actually had to turn on the oven :)

What do you think?
