I need the beach!

On Sunday, I heard it was going to be unusually warm this week and I posted that funny ice cream truck picture I found on StampTV for the their inspiration challenge. Well........ the weather forecasters were right! It's sweltering, especially inside my home! Ugh! The air conditioner isn't working! I'm right now waiting for a friend of my brother to come over and take a look at it. He installed it 3 years ago, so we are still under warranty.

I would really love being at the beach right now with a breeze like on this card I made for yesterday's Splitcoast CAS challenge and CPC's color challenge. I'm settling for a fan blowing on me so I can bare the laptop keeping me warm. My kitty has finally gotten the hint that I don't want her on my lap. LOL! She's relaxing on the back of the recliner.

So, here's my beach beach CAS/color challenge card. Recipe is below :)
