Dies R Us - Summertime Fun

Hello Friends!

Here we are in the middle of June and that means it's time for another fun challenge over on the  Dies R Us Challenge Blog. Our theme today is:

 Summertime Fun

The dies I have used on today's 'summertime relaxation card' are:

 Sue Wilson Designs - Tropical Collection - Island Paradise
 Impression Obsession - Dies - Beach Chairs

 Impression Obsession - Dies - Beach Umbrella
Impression Obsession - Dies - Shore Birds

As I have aged, relaxing on a beach would be my idea of the best summer time fun one could ask for!  LOL   Although I must admit I really don't get to the beach very often ... seems our back deck has become our retreat more often these days!

I hope you like the scene I have created.  I've used TH distress inks to create the sand & sky.

Don't forget to check out sister store in Canada . . .
Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

I hope you will come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
