Enjoy!

Hi all! hope all the Dad's out there had a Spectacular Father's Day!  My Darling Hubby had to work, but he Absolutely loved the Card I made for him.  Yay!  I also got him the Emergency Series that is now out on dvd, that was also on his wish list.  So I think he was a Happy Camper all around. 8-)


For this evenings post, I thought I would play along with a couple of my favorite challenges, Impression Obsessions's Hot Fun in the Summer Challenge and  The Color Throwdown Challenge #146.


I stamped my IO's Beach Chair By Leigh Hannan onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored up my Fun Beachy scene with my trusty Copics and the help of a white gel pen.  I used some really fun summery digi dp's from KTeague's Sunny Day's collection featured at Two Peas in a Bucket, and thought it would be neat to feature one pattern as the sun shining behind my image... So, I did my best to cut out the top section of my beach scene so you could see the sunny dp behind it, popped it up with some dimensionals  and then matted them up together with some fun green polka dot dp from my stash and then popped the whole ensemble up with more dimensionals.  For my BG I used a couple differnt dp's  from the same KTeague digi collection. And to finish up my Summery creation, I stamped my IO's Mini Messages Sentiment directly onto my BG using Memento Tuxedo black, added some fun polka dot ribbon, a cute little button and tied it all up with a bit of bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds.

Hope you are all having a Fabulous evening & thanks so much for Stopping By! 8-)
