It was another hot one here yesterday, and a little on the muggy side too. We were supposed to get rally bad thunderstorms but they missed us thankfully! It did rain for bit but not much. Work was tons of fun yesterday as always. Daniel was at my parents, he always makes the day little better! After I spent some time with him I headed over to Brian & Kim’s for dinner and Heather was there too. So nice to just sit on the deck and laugh, just the way summer should be! The clouds were pretty cool last night, don’t you think?!
My card for today is quite fitting! It’s for this week’s Paper Players theme challenge…
I used a lot of the stuff from last month’s Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. The base of the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I covered the front in a piece of Cucumber Crush. The patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Sunkissed Collection, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders Dies to trim off the right side and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. My panel in the middle is made from a piece of Pumpkin Pie that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card Die, next up is a piece of Daffodil Delight and another piece of the pattered paper. I used the Project Life Corner Rounder on them and adhered them to each other and to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My banner is also from the Stitched Journaling Card Die and is cut from Tempting Turquoise and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I cut the sunglasses out from another piece of Cucumber Crush with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Geek is Chick Dies, the lenses are a piece of Silver Foil Sheet. To finish off the card I adhered two of the DoodleBug Summer Sprinkles Shapes. I think that the card is bright and happy and with all of the ice creams on the paper and the embellishments it definitely fits the Summer Treats theme! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you so much for spending a little time with me today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
