Shore Birthday

I feel like an awful blogger lately, my summer has been so busy and is only getting busier.  We don't have a free weekend until the middle of September for sure and possible even the end of September, depending on whether or not the last plans go through.
It is hard to believe that it is the 2nd of August already!!  It has been a great long weekend that we spent with really great friends and their family (they have the most adorable 8 month old twin boys EVER)!  It was a very relaxing weekend and even though one of the boys came down with a cold, I can't think of anywhere else I would have rather been. 
This card kind of reminds me of our weekend.  We didn't spend much time relaxing on a shore, but we did get to go down to the lake for a little while.  I had actually made this card for my FIL and gave it to him in July, but because I hadn't posted and it seems so relaxed I just had to post it tonight.
I always have a harder time making masculine cards, so I CASED this card.  Check out the original here.  I hate to say that for this card the stamp sets are not available through me.  The chair and shore birds are from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Shore Thing.  The "happy" and "birthday" are from two separate stamps sets designed by the amazing Amy Rysavy.  The colors on this card are Pacific Blue, Sahara Sand and Soft Suede. 
Hope you like it!  I will try to get back to post some more cards for you soon.
