A Pool Party Day

Okay - so I'm talking about the colour and not an actual pool party - but believe me you certainly could have one here today.  The leaves are falling off the trees creating a wonderful golden carpet on the street - and yet the breeze is sooooo warm, it's an incredible September afternoon.

So - I'm working with the Paper Players sketch for this card and I incorporated two pieces  which were sitting on my craft table just waiting to be used.  The Pool Party matt had been distressed and then opted against for a card last week, and the centre medallion was made a number of weeks ago when I first got my SIMPLY SCORED and was playing around.    Ya almost need a box in order to give it to anyone - it's so high in the middle.  Oh well, gotta create something challenging every once in a while - right?

I had a fantastic time yesterday at our Extravaganza - it wasn't a big crowd, but a fun one.  Next weekend I have a music workshop to go to - so I may never get a Saturday to sleep in.  Maybe that's why I'm napping in the afternoon?  Hee Hee.

Here are the supplies that I used for this card -

Hope your weekend has been warm and wonderful - thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Joan
