PIP Challenge #2125

 Today I am thinking "Summer" for my card for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2125.  It has been extremely hot and humid this week in Kansas so I am thinking of ways to cool down.  Today PIP Challenges is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs.

                                               

The design team was given the image "Mouse with Drink" to work with this week.  Well I decided my drink would be lemonade because of the heat and how refreshing it sounded when I was making this card.


I found some papers from Echo Park called A Slice of Summer which worked perfect for my card.

Have a great week and be sure and check out the digital stamps at Gerda Steiner Designs.  They are always so fun to work with.

Classy Card Ladies

 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.

PIP Challenge #2123

 Well I'm not sure where the last 2 weeks went but I am definitely late to the party and posting my card for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2123.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.


For my card today I am using the template "Dragonfly" from The Cutting Cafe.


This was such a fun and easy card to make because I downloaded the file that was sent to me and I cut it out with my scan n cut.  The sentiment was also with the image I purchased.  There are several different cards to make with this download.  Just thought this one would be fun with a colorful background.

Hope you enjoyed my card and be sure and check out what the design team did with other downloads from The Cutting Cafe.
