I wish I were there. . .

Go HERE for the Clearly Inspired Challenge post!

I made this card this morning, because I just NEEDED to make a card. I've been stressed, and I won't go into details, but making this was exactly what I needed. I would love to be at the beach right now, and I will be in over a week. I get to meet my bff, Christi, and her family down in Panama City for a little r&r. Sadly, my husband can't come along, but it will be wonderful to see Christi.

I used Beach Bum Cuppie, from Taylored Expressions for this card and it actually qualifies for several challenges. Woohoo for me!
