Summer Celebrations.....FMS344





Wishing you a Happy Fourth of July!  Hope this week is filled with sunshine, picnics and lots of fun!  That is how our week is shaping up!  We had all the cousins over for our annual Cuzziepalooza at the lake!  Lots of fun............








And just in case things got too rambunctious the Big Guy had it all under control........





I love Cecile's square sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  She is a whiz with diecuts so I used some on my card today just for her!  Join us!


                                          

There is also a celebration going on at The Paper Players!  They are celebrating their 400th sketch this week!  It is a wonderful team of very talented gals!  I was lucky enough to spend a year with them as a guest designer.  I love the variety of their challenges!  This week is a celebration theme of course - and there is a chance to win prizes!  Hope you join in!

                                                             

Stamp Sets:  Happy (Hero Arts)
Paper:  Whisper White, Tropical Escape DSP, Basic Black, Granny Apple Green, Blushing Bride

Awesome card! You picked the perfect DSP, it almost looks like watermelon! Hope that the "security" can keep those kids in line. ;) Enjoy your holiday!

Love, love, love this card Linda, I've decided that there isn't anytime you can't use that Tropical Escape DSP that it won't be gorgeous.

Such pretty colours, LInda! That big, bold, black die cut 'happy' packs a real wallop and draws you right in. Thank you so much for joining in with our 400th challenge celebrations. I always look forward to seeing what you make.

Such a fun card! I love how you've interpreted this sketch - love it! Adore the family pictures, too, but that's a given! <3

What a great take on the sketch! I took one look at it and ran, lol, but you made it shine. Love seeing the happy family pictures and love that you joined us for our 400th celebration!

That is one clever take on the sketch! I love the tropical vibe. Plus the frame on the angled layer is genius!

This card is perfect for a hot summer day! I can almost imagine I'm on a tropical island sipping a fruity frozen drink. Thanks for the brief escape!

Cécile RIBON said...
