Sit Back and Relax!

I seriously need to do more of this, don't you?!! Life is so hectic and stressful for so many . . . there are days that I'd love to just transport myself to a beautiful tropical beach. Doesn't that sound amazing?! When I bought this Lockhart Beach Chair stamp from Susana’s Custom Card & Art Design I was suddenly laying on the beaches of Hawaii in my mind - a place where there's no stress, no chaos . . . just peaceful rest. I have so many friends who are stressed out right now, so I think I'll send this off to one of them.

I used the sketch challenge that Suzanne Dean has posted on the PCP Susana’s Custom Card & Art Design group page. It's a sketch challenge as well as an inspiration challenge. The inspiration is a picture of a beautiful tropical beach. Ahhhhhhh . . . I can smell those plumeria's blowing in the breeze. Pool boy!! Bring me a Long Island Iced Tea!! LOL

I love a good sketch challenge - how about you? Well, if so, head on over to the PCP Susana’s Custom Card & Art Design and check it out for yourself!! Great stuff, I tell ya!

Hope you have a lovely, tropical day!!
