Happy Summer!

With summer in full bloom, and with some summery die cuts from Marybeth Lopez's
fun summer kit, (do you follow 12 Kits of Occasions? Here's a link:
do another summer card and play along with Stephanie. She's
our hostess for this week's MIM, 'Creating Mixed Background Texture'

Pretty much stayed with Stephanie's layout, stamped images on top, die cut texture on bottom,
and die cuts going up the side with sentiment tag tucked in. 

Hope your summer's going well, and you're surviving the heat. We are looking forward
to cooler days and autumn breezes. Ahhhh, can't wait! But for now 100+ every day...
Great excuse to stay inside and craft! 

Isn't pink just the cutest color for a surfboard?

  1. Looks like we're both playing indoors today my 100's here but getting back into the 90's with oppressive humidity...yuck! But anyway, your card is absolutely FABULOUS!! I love those stamped flip flops...what says Summer more than flip flops?!! And how perfect is using the waves cover plate for your die cut it!! And your pink surfboard...perfection!! LOVE everything about this FUN Summertime card Nancy!! :0)

  2. Yup, Nancy you've struck gold again (no pun intended)! What a fun card! And yes, we are suffering with
    90 degree heat down here too in SoCal for the 2nd week. Problem is, October usually brings us temps
    in the 100s. We have no fall. I'll have to check out Marybeth's kits (they look like fun). TFS!

  3. What a fun, fantastic card, Nancy. Love all the bright colors. So pretty. We have been up in the 90's which is hot for us Washingtonians, but yesterday it was only about 80 and felt so good. Today it's cloudy and supposed to get sunny and 79. Much better.

  4. I'm reading about your 100+ temps as I swing on the patio at a cool 72 this evening! But the heat returns for us this weekend...ahh summer! Speaking of summer love this card, layered perfectly as always. I need to watch the video this looks like a fun one!

  5. Sounds like our weather but we've just had a short break with some rain and now the humidity is stifling. Seeing all your fresh, cool colors is so refreshing! Love the adorable flip flops and those wonderful waves. I don't swim so would never be on a surfboard but if I was, bright pink would be the most fun!

  6. I love your MIM card very much, such a vibrant and fun summery card! I really hope to have a chance to play along too it's a fun one!

  7. Eeep! This is the cutest summer card ever! I love the flip flops across the top paired with the waves die. Pure genius my friend! What a great use of those brightly colored trees and surfboard from Marybeth's kit. This is totally darling!

  8. You hit the nail on the head with this adorable summery card, Nancy. Love the RF surfboard, and those flip flops across the top are perfect with your waves and palm trees. Simply adorable!

  9. What a cute card, Nancy! Love those flip flops and your beach theme!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
