Happy HOT Friday to everyone! I hope you are staying cool, and we are praying for all the people in Colorado whose homes were lost. What power Mother Nature has! I managed to get some stamping in today---I thought I would be able to do a lot more this week, but I did some relaxing by the pool yesterday with my girlfriend (and got a little burnt!!) so it was worth giving up some stamping time to spend with her!
The SCS challenge today is to use scraps----don’t we all have TONS of them? I went to my little bin of scraps and just pulled some out that sort of followed a color trend and came up with this:
I used the Deconstructed Sketch sketch #58:
and this is also for the Raise the Bar challenge 107, which is summer!
I just love this Graphic 45 paper with its retro bathing suits!! That sure says summer to me! Thanks for visiting today, and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me!
Here’s a little shot of Cassidy & her daddy at the water park! Now I am off to Curves to release some frustration due to my incredibly slow computer! The heat must be getting it down!

Merry Monday 26
Happy Monday, peeps! Wow, what a whirlwind weekend, spent mostly away from home, and my house looks a wreck! So this will be quick so I can get things back to somewhat normal! Today’s Merry Monday sketch looks like this:
And here’s my happy little card:
I honestly can’t remember using this side of this retired SU paper, but it was so cute and happy, I had to pull it out for this card! I used a retired Christmas set called Perfect Presentation, and used Baja Breeze, Sage Shadow (miss that color!) and Pretty in Pink for my stamped images. My tag punches made quick work of this little one:
and I just freehand-cut my “joy” letters:
This sketch lends itself to some fun interpretation with some layering and your choice of shape! Hope you find some time to make one more Christmas card for your stash!!! Can’t wait to see what you create! Don’t forget to share it with us at Always Playing with Paper and check out what beauties the other designers made as well!
I don’t have Cassidy this week, but I did find a couple pictures I hadn’t shared yet…..the middle one is blurry, but she has her shades on upside down! That girl!

Paper Players 101
Of course, I did retrieve them while she wasn’t looking! I think she’s going to be a stamper, what do you think?

Rainy Day Creations June Sketch Challenge
I actually had some free time this afternoon to blurf and I came across a new sketch challenge from Susan at Rainy Day Creations:
I used to visit her blog a lot---I don’t know why I haven’t been there for a while! I played with some MME Fiddlesticks paper to make this card for a friend:
and then used the other sides of the papers to make this one:
My computer is extremely slow today, so I’m not going to give you details….if you have any questions about stamps, ink or accessories, just shoot me an email---my address is at the top right sidebar! I think the heat & humidity affects those wires or waves or whatever it is that makes the internet work!!! Stay cool and enjoy your weekend! I’ll be back on Sunday with my Paper Players creation!
Some summertime fun!
