Summer Vacation

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone is having a good week.  Mine has been nice.  The weather is nice, I'm taking a couple days off of work which will be nice, and Saturday I am spending with friends stamping.  All in all a good week.  The only bad part is that the weather is suppose to go from cool (60's & 70's) to the high 90's later this week.  I hate the really hot weather.  It makes me want to stay in the house and AC. I would rather have the windows open.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we thought with summer starting people are thinking about vacations so the the theme this week is to make a project about Summer Vacations!  This House Mouse stamp was perfect for it!  This card is so different from what I usually do but one thing led to another and here it is.  I hope you like it.
