Play Date Cafe 135 - Happy Summer!

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down one post 
for the 'Inspired by Stamping' June Sneak Peeks!



Here we go with a new set of colors from The Play Date Cafe!  This time 'round, it's Aquamarine, Poolside and Clay.  And we have The Craft's Meow as our sponsor this week -- love their stamps!

Since I have some adorable TCM stamps, I used those for my project.  I just have to say, my card took waaaaay too many hours to conjure up.  Once I got the idea in my head, somehow the translation to paper just didn't quite make it the way it looked in my mind.  Ever have those times?



I added a face to the sun.  :o)


The beach ball looks so summery, sitting among those sandy mounds.





One lucky player this week will receive a special prize from The Craft's Meow.  For all the details, head over to The Play Date Cafe.

Hope to see you there!



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Sending You Sunshine, It's A Shore Thing - The Craft's Meow
Paper: white - PTI; Creamy Caramel - SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko; Ballet Blue, Baja Breeze - SU
Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions

SUPER DUPER cute card Colleen! Love the fun beach ball nestled in the sand.

I think this is really cute and Summery! I know what you mean about designs not turning out on paper like they are in our mind. Happens around here all the time. Sometimes it works better to just go with the flow and not think too much ahead of time.

Linda R said...

That happens to me all the time. I picture something in my head and it doesn't come out how I had image. I have to say your card is just as cute as can be..

Hugs~
