June 15 sure rolled around quickly and this means it is time for our Classy Card Ladies showdown. Kelly is our hostess this month and she sure has a perfect challenge for us. June brings warmer weather and alot of trips to the pool and lakes in the Midwest.
When I first read Kelly's challenge I thought What??? She chose our theme to be "Salt Life" . Well this longtime Kansas girl had never heard of that saying. I even looked up the definition in an Urban Dictionary. Originally it was a sticker on the back of cars used to denote a surfer, bodyboarder or general beach bum whose life centered around the ocean or related beach going activities. The trend has spread to senior citizens, wanna be hipsters, soccer moms, and other person wishing to inform the world that yes, they too have visited the beach at some point in life and they have the sticker to prove it.
This image is from Photo Play Tulla and Norbert's Excellent Adventure Collection. The designer papers are also from that line. I had the MFT beach builders die and decided to use it for the water, sand and palm tree.
So thanks to Kelly for a great challenge and for enlightening this Kansas gal. I even laughed to myself this week driving around town and noticed a car in front of me with a "Salt Life" sticker.
This is what the other girls came up with on the Diamonds and Pearls teams.
