When Life Gives You Limes...

...make margaritas! I have loved this particular stamp from A Muse Designs for a while now and when I saw it at 'The Ink Pad' I knew I had to have it. While I usually try to buy sentiments exclusively in acrylic, this one (despite its pricey 8.95 price tag...oh A Muse, why are you so darn cute and expensive?) just called out to me! I also thought this was perfect for Hanna Stamp's release party challenge. It was to do something summmery and I thought this was just so perfect!

I hope everyone had a wonderful fourth, the beach was super crowded but a lot of fun. It rained a lot here last night, but the nearby hospital still put on a spectacular show. I experimented with taking pictures of the fireworks, but due to the rain I couldn't use a tripod (we were huddled under umbrellas), but I did get some decent ones (I'll post later!).

I also scrapbooked yesterday for the first time in a while. I think I just got so used to the instant gratification of cards. Has something similar happened to y'all?

...also, sorry about the picture quality. It's rainy outside, but I still wanted to post this card, I'll re-shoot when it's sunnier.
