Birthday card for Jim L.

For once I've got a card completed almost a week early for a birthday. My friend, Jim Lundy, has a birthday on July 3rd. He won't be in town, but I wanted to surprise him with this card before he heads east to spend some vacation time with his family.

This is a Mo Manning digital image called It's Hot. It's been colored with Copics. I computer generated the two sentiments. The fish on the second page is from a set from Inkadinkado.

The base card is Bazzill and all designer papers are from Echo Park Summer Days paper pad.

I can just see Jim after and Buster (Jim's beagle) hitting the wading pool after going for a walk. Video images from Toby's Keiths song Trailerhood come to mind :)

I used some Glitter Mist glaze (Icicle) on the water and on the goggles added some Crystal effects.

That's it for today. I doubt I post tomorrow as I have a card delivery to make and then my best friend and I are getting together to do some 4th of July cards. Dinner time will be at Famous Dave's. We're stretching out Liz's birthday which was the 22nd.
