Happy Friday Everyone!
The weather is SO BEAUTIFUL here in Ohio right now that I'm having a very difficult time staying in my crafting cave and getting creative! Even though it is 'work' ... I love being outside on a day like today
weeding playing in my flower gardens, mowing the lawn (always looks so good in late spring/early summer) and just getting everything looking so nice after a long, cold winter!
But I have been wanting to play along in a few of my favorite challenges (started this card earlier in the week) so am taking the time today to get creative (indoors). LOL!
The current challenge at Frilly and Funkie is Vintage Seaside and the current Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is Roses. Both of which where on my mind when putting this card together!
I have had a few packs of vintage images in my stash for a couple of years now (purchased at Adventures in Stamping - Akron) and I was certain I'd find something appropriate in one of those packs and I did! LOVE these kids playing in the sand at the beach and I couldn't wait to try out my new Cheery Lynn Designs SMALL flower making strip dies.
I've also taken the opportunity to use up a few extra die cuts that have been laying on my worktable.
Here's a few additional challenges to share in ...
Alphabet Challenge - H for Handmade Embellishments (roses)
Art By Miran Challenge #7 - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge #233 - Anything Goes
Cut It Up #46 - Summer Vacation
Fussy and Fancy #115 - Outdoors
Sister Act Challenge #59 - Anything Goes

I hope you're having a fabulous week and thanks so much for stopping by!
As always ...
