Sending sunny thoughts

This weekend we had beautiful weather here so it was perfect to be outside.  We were able to go to an Art Fair and see many gorgeous things and then I have thoughts of re-doing my entire house.....if I could only afford to do that, not.  Instead the only item I bought was a toad house.  I have a shaded back yard so I have lots of toads in my grass and when I go out to cut it they are always hopping out of my way.  When I saw this find I thought it was too funny so I had to get me one.
For my card, I used a pre-colored image from the Paper Shelter and then I created my own background.  I embossed the sun background and sponged on some ink.  Then I sprayed on some Krylon paint to look like sand.  Now I could  go for some fruity drink, but it seems like I'm "on-call" for work all the time.  The sentiment is from TLC.
