In the Summertime

Boy is it hot outside today. Already over 100 degrees and it is still early afternoon. We got up and got our errands done early and I don't think I will be going for a walk today. Hmmm maybe a nap would be in order. It was a rough week. The beginning of the school year for me and we have a district wide new computer program that we need to know NOW. We got very little training on Monday and Tuesday morning and then went to our buildings to work. Not a good way to start. Parents would come in to enroll their kids and I would look at them and want to say, "can you go somewhere else because I don't know how!" Of course I didn't and now I have to figure out how to do it. I had the other program down pat! Now all the rules have changed. So I chose to put a summer card up and where I wish I could be for all next week!

I used sandpaper for the sandy beach and tapped some Close to Cocoa randomly on it. It was colored with my Copics. Not much else to tell. A very simple card.

Until next time, Happy Trails...
