Exploring Cricut - Summer Fun Challenge

Well, summer is definitely here and to celebrate at Exploring Cricut the challenge this week is "Summer Fun". Make a card, layout or papercraft using at least 3 Cricut cuts, 2 pattern papers and 1 embellishment of summer fun activity, vacation, etc.

I chose to make a card from Pack Your Bags.  I have to say I would like to be this chick today at the pool or beach because it is hot and muggy here. Doesn't she look relaxed:) This was a fun card for me to make because I love summer . Near the water is even better. Just made me smile!

I decided to hide the sun face cuts with my Gypsy and used a Peachy Stamp instead. I popped up the sun and added Stickles to the sand and waves. I also want to mention that the stamp "wishing you" was curved on the block before stamping. I really like the flexibility of K.Andrew Stamps.

Love your card and I would like to be that chick today, but the rain will not allow it so I guess it will be laundry and cleaning....maybe crafting too!

I need to lay in the sun and add a little color to my cheeks, but me and a bathing suit do not mix. I am enjoying the lazy days of summer right now!

Stay Creative,

I agree-I want to be that chick too! Love the peachy face on the sun and the stickle on the waves. I am loving that K Andrews stamp set too-it has some great sayings for summer. I haven't tried shaping them on the block for a curved sentiment-will have to try that now:)
