Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer

This card showcases multi-tasking at its best! It was originally made for last weeks The Cats Pajamas Tuesday (TCPTUES14) and the Wednesday sketch challenge (SC183) over on Splitcoaststampers. It also includes a wonderful die cut card from Creative Cuts and More! It was originally going to be posted on Saturday (along with a cute picture of my youngest son blowing out the candles on his birthday cake). It was Saturday afternoon that I discovered that the memory card on my digital camera was corrupt. Every single picture that was taken on my sons birthday was lost. :-( I can always retake pictures of my cards, but unfortunately I can't retake the birthday photos. I only today just picked up a new memory card for my camera (so I'm finally able to post some of the things that I've been creating).

The central image is "Relaxing" Sprinkle. She was stamped in Black Craft ink and embossed with detail clear (so her coat is super glossy)! I then colored in the image with a few of the Copic markers that I now possess. The patterned paper and sparkle brads are from the Archivers exclusive "Endless Summer" line by WeRMemory Keepers. I stamped the "Bubbles" stamp in Versamark around the perimeter of the card. I also stamped the "Bubbles" stamp on the inside of the card in "Summer Sun".

The card base is from Creative Cuts and More. The color is Bazzil "Lemon Bliss" and the mat color is "Caribbean Breeze". What makes this card super special is the inside.

Is that not the coolest? This is the Heart Fold-Up Explosion Card Set. This is such a WOW effect for so very little effort! I encourage you to go and check out Terry's site. It is full of many wonderful things in every color imaginable under the sun.

And speaking of is a picture of Bella! She loves to come up and lay by my keyboard whenever I am posting or surfing the web.

Lastly, I have to toot my own horn here a little bit! Have you seen who won is the Swanky Stamper over on The Cats Pajamas?'s me! I didn't even find out that I had won until about 9:00 PM that night (as I was too busy to log on to the computer). I am trying so hard to wait until the next release. I can't wait to see what Alma has been cooking up!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Linda, I am so sorry about the birthday photos...that must have been awful! Perhaps you can do a photo-less layout with lots of journaling about the day?

Your cards are GREAT! And CONGRATS on being the Swanky Stamper - you so deserve it!
