It's July?!

This past week I've been struggling a bit.  First off I cannot believe it's July already?!  I have to get caught up with my friend's birthdays and anniversaries which is the main reason for this post today.  The other news...over the weekend I lost one of my patients that I took care of for almost 3 years.  I will miss seeing and chatting with her weekly.  I found it ironic that this happened as I'm also contemplating making a move in my's scary and exciting. I'd be leaving my comfort zone of 8 years, but on the other hand I'll be learning new skills and doing exactly what I know I'm meant to do.  Ugh...transition is hard!

On the brighter side I needed to get an anniversary card out to my dearest Colorado sister!  She and her husband love the beach so that was my inspiration.

Lawn Fawn Life is Good, Lawn Fawn Happily Ever After, Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday
Lawn Fawn Let's Polka paper, copics, Memento inks in Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa

By now you know I'm addicted to Lawn Fawn and turned those sweet little crabs into a his and her couple.  Do you like the little bow tie and teeny flower?  Both are die cuts from the Beep Boop Birthday set.

So that's it for me.  Of course the challenge junky in me is entering this card in a few challenges:
Virginia's View Challenge: Die Cut
City Crafter Challenge: Let's Go to the Beach
My colors were inspired by: Curtain Call
