Sea Shells by the Seashore

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. Ours was very low key, we just hung out at the pool and try to stay cool. Unfortunately, we were not able to see any fireworks because San Antonio has a burn ban because of the drought we are currently in. It was very surreal not to at least hear them going off. Oh well, we'll just have to wait until New Year's Eve, which believe it or not is a HUGE fireworks night around here!
Now before I get to today's card, I wanted to just chat a bit about my blog. Hopefully, if you are a follower you can see that I have made some changes and added a few new things over on the side bar. I encourage you to take a little look and do some exploring. This is, and always will be, my stamping/paper crafting blog; but I just thought I'd give everyone a little glimpse into other things I do and enjoy, such as reading and reviewing great books (and sometimes not so great) I've read. My twitter feed is a great way to get to know more about me as well! You'll also see that I've put a little widget on here for the "Networked Blogs" You'll also see that I currently am the only one following my blog....sad but true at the moment! This is a new feature for me that I added because I've seen it on other blogs. If you are a "Network Blog" member and feel so inclined to follow me, I would be ever so grateful.

Ok, so I'm linking today's card to a TON of challenges (well, at least a ton for me!) I really want to have time to explore the other wonderful creations out there, so I'm going to let the challenges fill in the details of the card.
