DL.ART Thankful Thursday #207 - Summer Fun

Hello, everyone and happy Thursday!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DLART and the theme this week is Summer Fun!! If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your purchase at the DL.ART shop!!


For my summer fun projects, I created these surfing themed cards using papers from Authentique's Utopia collection.


To frame the surfers, I used a Die-Versions Smile Sweet Frame die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I have a slight...okay, a huge obsession with beach-themed dies :) The palm trees are Gina Marie dies and the surfboards are My Creative Time, as are the waves and sentiment, stamped on a Spellbinders Address Book die. This beautiful crinkle ribbon is St. Tropez Gold from the Tropical Summer bundle.


Salt Life is an Impression Obsession die. Beneath the WOC flowers are Kaiser Craft Tropical Leaves. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Aruba Blue from the Tropical Summer bundle.





I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Let's Take a Vacation
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Summer Fun project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  15. OMGoodness, these are stunning and just up my alley since I just love anything and everything tropical! I keep going back for one more look and find something new to Wow about! Sorry, I haven't been around much lately. Hubby has been having vertigo issues and I've had to drive him everywhere. As you can imagine, going from doctor to specialist to specialist to try to figure out what is going on is also very time consuming. Anyway, all results coming back well, so God willing it will all resolve itself out soon. Have a wonderful day, my friend, and THANK YOU so much for all the lovely and encouraging comments you leave on my blog.
    Loads of hugs,
    Lena
