Learn to Surf

It's been so hot and humid here, so I'm dreaming of cooler beach weather. Today's card uses my friend Michelle's TCM stamps, It's a Shore Thing and October Afternoon's Seaside papers. I added some bling for the water squirt.

The adventure that I mentioned in my previous post ended up being very productive. We drove to Graz, Austria to shop. Crazy, isn't it? that we travel across borders (Slovenia is between here and Austria) to shop. It's only an hour and 15 minutes drive away and the prices for certain staples are much cheaper there. And they have certain items we can't get in Croatia (like the necessary marshmallows and Rice Krispies cereal:-). Not to mention that they have an Ikea, Toys'R Us, and Burger King. It's a good place to visit that reminds us of "home" once in awhile.

I found a winter jacket for my oldest for 9 Euros ($15) and that is cheap! I also found some little items from Ikea that I can't wait to alter. Unfortunately, they still don't have a craft store, but that is probably a good thing. :-)

  3. Hi Nina! Such a fun card! We are almost at beach weather here!!! :> The last time I went to Croatia we flew to Frankfurt and than drove to visit family in Switzerland first. I was amazed how in one day we could pass through so many counties! And seeing so many Ikeas in one day! Here in Canada it would take days of driving to see how many I saw in just a few hours! :> I bet it's fun to go on such a short trip and get such good deals! :>
