So, confession time.....I messed up my Inspired By post earlier today by sharing with you NEXT WEEK's inspiration! So upsetting! My teammate Michele encouraged me to go ahead and create a card for this week anyway, despite the fact that my mojo was in the tank! And guess what....I made a card in about ten minutes! So here is the REAL inspiration for this week:
Anyone remember the movie Endless Summer? It came out in 1966; I definitely remember those graphics, but I never saw the movie! I just used my one and only surfer image a couple of weeks back, so I didn't want to use him again, but my friend Amy just bought the Sailing Home stamps and dies and was looking for inspiration, so I decided to use the sailboat die for my graphic-design card:
I sort of used the sketch, although I wasn't really trying! I simply cut layers of Poppy Parade and Magenta Madness to fit my card front and added a big Daffodil Delight "sun". I diecut the sailboat from Basic Black and the "enjoy" is from the retired Mini Treat Bag dies. I did do a wee bit of stamping on the water and added some seagulls from Sailing Home:
I think this will make a great masculine birthday card...I am so glad Michele "made" me make a card for this week...thanks, Michele! I hope you'll play along with our pretty summer inspiration this week at Inspired By! And thank YOU for stopping by!
What I did with my free time today....dill relish! Only had four big cucumbers and there are NO LIDS AND SEALS to be found in my area....had to scrounge around my cupboards just to make these jars!
I guess I should be glad that canning has been so popular this summer! Who remembers the "pop" the jars would make as they cooled off...a sure sign of a good seal! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
