Sum-Sum-Summertime!


I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday yesterday! I took my four kids and one of their friends to the local Six Flags Park. I had never gone to an amusement park on the 4th before and was a little worried about the heat and the crowds. The temperature was at least 101-105 but there was a breeze and lots of shade and the temp started dropping around 4pm. Surprisingly, the crowds weren't too bad. It was a little busy in the early hours of the day but by 3pm there was no wait on older rides and only 30 min waits for the newest, biggest roller coasters. We had a fantastic time and even got to see fireworks!

For today's card I used Summer by the Sea. I stamped with StazOn onto Whisper White and water colored with aqua painters and re-inkers. I also touched up some with markers. The card base is Barely Banana stamped with the Canvas background stamp in banana and sponged around the edges. The focal image is layered with Sage Shadow and Perfect Plum. Light Pink Grosgrain is wrapped around the left edge of the card and tied with a square knot.

I have had this set for quite a long time but only recently have I liked what I have been making with it. Before I would stamp and color and play and then hate what ever I completed. So I'm glad that I have tried again because I like this card. I hope that you do too!
