Summer Time

Hello All!
I can't believe we are already into the month of August!  I still have so many things I want to do before the weather changes ... but maybe I'm getting ahead of myself!   With the way the climate has changed here in Ohio, we won't get snow until 2019 so I still have plenty of time!  LOL



Today Diane (Nellie's Nest) and I are challenging each other again to join in the same fun challenge and inspire each other with what we created.  I chose Addicted to CAS as our challenge blog to participate in today because I need all the CAS practice I can get!  Their theme this time around is SUMMERTIME.


For the background on my card I have used Tim Holtz Distress Broken China ink and a large sponge dauber.  And for my summertime scene I've used the Taylored Expression 'Beach Border' die.  It was cut from white card stock and colored using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  Then, popped up using dimensional tape.


As many of you know, hubby & I took a month long holiday in May and visited some of the islands of French Polynesia!  OMG they were so amazing!  So this was my SUMMERTIME inspiration.  We actually stayed in a tiki hut out in the beautiful blue waters of Tahiti ... awesome!

INSIDE
The birds on the front of my card is a stamp from Stampscapes and the inside sentiment is a stamp by Endless Creations.   The palm tree on the inside is a die by Frantic Stamper called Tall Palm Tree.  My rectangle sentiment panel was die cut using the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles and I sponged the edge using the same Tim Holtz blue ink.

Challenges to share in:
Stamplorations CAS Challenge - Summer Vacation
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Make Your Own Background
Cards in Envy Challenge - On the Beach

Well that's it for me today!  I'm so happy you have taken the time to stop by and say hello!
Be sure to pop over to Diane's blog to see what she has created
Have a great weekend ahead!

As always . . .
