PP449 Summer Splash


Hey peeps!  Happy Sunday!  Laurie is our hostess over at the Paper Players today with a super-fun challenge for us!  I am sure you can round up some images to play with us this week:


My summery stamps are more beach-related, but I did remember this cool surfer silhouette from SU a few years back, so I inked him up in a new In Color, Pretty Peacock, to create my square card today:


It's pretty CAS, which I am grateful for, as I seem to have gotten behind in sending out my July birthday cards, so this one is perfect for a young man in our church whose birthday was yesterday!  Ooops!  Luckily, the FMS sketch was perfect for it:


I added some "splashes" from Gorgeous Grunge; added a Pool Party scallop and a panel of Pretty Peacock that was embossed with the Seaside embossing folder.  I added a couple of words, lightly stamped in Pool Party, from an older Impression Obsession set called Imagine Words:


While I never surfed when I was a kid, I was a pretty good skimboarder....now I would be sure to break an arm, leg or other body part if I tried skimboarding, LOL!  But I do have fond memories of gliding along the sand on my orange skimboard!

While Cassidy is enjoying her vacation with daddy, I thought I'd share a flashback from July 2013 of her summer splash...she's giving her doll a bath, LOL!  I remember those days too!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

That's a fantastic masculine card, and I really like the spatters and colors! Love the flashback pic of Cassidy - how cute :)

LeAnne, your card is refreshing! I love the color combo, the embossed waves and surfer! I never got to try that, but I am certain I would have loved it in my younger days. Being land locked in Indiana didn't give us these opportunities! LOL! Like you, that is out of the question now. I can dream though!
Love this flashback of Cassidy and her doll! Precious Memories!
Have a great week, My Friend! XX

Love that bold surfer combined with the large words and fun embossed wave background. If only I was fit enough to hop on a board like that!! A great watersports card LeAnne!

Love the flashback of Cassidy... my, how she has grown! I love your card, too. I love the scallops and the texture and the monochromatic colors. A fabulous, masculine card and a great use of the sketch.
