I am up on the SRM Blog today with a summertime card.
This stamp is by Great Impressions. It was from 2007...so I just completely dated myself and proved that I can't throw anything away! ;). I stamped it with black Memento ink, then used used my Polychromo pencils to color it. I applied glossy accents and real sand to the sandy part. I cut it out using a square die but cut the bottom portion by hand.
I sponged the edges in blue and a bit of yellow for some sunshine. I used SRM's Sentiment Summer sticker and a few sequins to finish off the card.
Our town does a big Fourth of July parade Friday, complete with fireworks. I love this night because even though we live in Chicago, our town feels a bit like Mayberry. Everyone will have company, swim in their pools, and in a way, celebrate together. I am having company as well and have been getting my house ready. It feels good to have the house finally finished so I can enjoy the rest of the summer work free!
Thank you for stopping by today!
It gets a bit lonely here, so I appreciate your comments very much! :)
