Life's A Beach...

     When I was going through the aisles of JoAnn's Fabric recently I came across this sweet pad of paper called Beaches, by Paper House.  It contained several great 6 x 6 sheets of scenes perfect for beach type stamping......Couldn't wait to try it out and was thrillled when I saw the Teapot Tuesday Challenge was a destination card with a challenge to show the weather on a card, inspired by the lyrics from a song.  
     With this background, and a love of the beach, the song Good Day Sunshine by the Beatles popped into my head (didn't have a rub on with those words, so I used these).  Now I am humming the words: I need to laugh and the sun is out, I've got something I can laugh about.  I feel good, and it's a special day, I'm in love and its a sunny day! - I can just about feel the breeze of the ocean as I toss my head back and hum on my imaginary beach. 
     Inside I have computer generated the sentiment - "Life's a Beach, Enjoy It" with some cute little flip flops in the corner. I will be putting this in the mail to a sister Teapotter this week and I hope she feels the peace it is meant to bring her.
     I am having shoulder surgery Monday and may not be able to stamp for a week or two - but you can bet I will try.  I prepared this a day early.   

Materials:  Rub On Sentiment, Computer, Paper House mini paper pad, Dollar Stamps from JoAnn's, Copics
