CASology 8 and Less is More 83

Sunday, September 2, 2012

This week's challenge at CASology really got me thinking.  The cue card is RELAX and it was fun to see the samples from the design team as well as the gallery submissions about what relaxing means to everyone.  I saw a sofa or two which gave me a chuckle.  I have a love/hate relationship with my sofa!  I love it because it is very comfortable and I hate it for the same reason.  I no sooner sit on it to relax and I fall asleep!  I can't tell you how many TV shows I've missed because I can't keep my eyes open.

So, I decided to go in a different direction for my relaxing card.  I incorporated the brown and pink challenge over at Less Is More.



I live in New England where the summers are kind of short and, since I love summer, I try to enjoy it as much as I can.  So on the weekends, after I've done the cleaning and the errands, I high-tail it out to my patio to relax on the chaise lounge with the sun on my face.  I usually have a book in my hand, and quite frequently I fall asleep, but I love to sit out there and just do nothing!  And my patio is surrounded by flowers, hence the pink flower on my card.  It's a wonderful thing to sit out there smelling the flowers and the boxwood.  I regret when summer comes to an end and the cold weather chases me inside!

Well, all this "talk" about relaxing has made my eyes droopy, so I think I'm done for the night!  But thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it when you do!

Everyone has their own definition of relax but I think we probably share the same one. Nothing seems more relaxing than sitting out on a patio surrounded by flowers to me. Your card turned out great!
