Dies R Us Challenge - Baby It's Hot Outside!

Hello Friends!

Here we are in the middle of August and that means it's time for another fun challenge over on the  Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  But, before telling you about the new challenge I wanted to let you know Dies R Us is having a DT Call for their Inspiration Team for the October 2020 - March 2021 term.  Call ends SEPTEMBER 1st.

Please click here for details.

Now back to the challenge ... our theme today is:

Baby It's Hot Outside!
(use HOT colors - Reds, Oranges, Yellows)

Anyone who knows me, KNOWS THIS IS MY MOTTO!!   LOL

Dies used today are:

 Frantic Stamper - Dies - Flipflops
Impression Obsession - Better in Flip Flops
Impression Obsession - Dies - Better In Flip Flops

I had several different background papers I could have used for today's card but this one really spoke to me ... reminded me of a sunset on the beach.  It's a 6x6 panel from the Carta Bella 'Beach Day' paper pack. 

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.
