Bikini and martini time!

Hi everyone!  I am in such a GOOD mood today!  One more day in work and then I am off for two weeks - woo hoo!  And it's also Bellarific Friday and we had a sketch to follow this week so here is my Bellarific Babe card take on it...




I love this lady!  And I love that she's wearing a polka dot bikini and drinking a martini!  This is Little Umbrella by Mo Manning and I matched her up with October Afternoon papers and used my Quickutz large polka dot embossing folder (again!!).  I used the sentiment that comes with the Uptown Girl Sandy And Her Sombrero set.

Okay, the next theme is Christmas in July!  I hope you can join in - just send a photo of your project to Em by next Thursday and I'll catch you later on my blog rounds!
