Summertime Fun

Everyone loves summer, right? Even if you don't like the heat, chances are you like the somewhat lazy days (unless you're a mom of course and no day is lazy!!). Summer means getting outside and pursuing activities that get you moving...like hiking...



and playing on the beach...



Both of these cards showcase new images that were recently released by DRS Designs. I thought this sentiment (G860)on the hiking card was a perfect match for the hiking image. The hiker (G1026) is raised on pop dots over the new silhouette tree image (F1030)stamped the same tree in white on the kraft panel, added a button and some twill ribbon attached with a staple and I was good to go!!

I love the clean and simple look of the beach card. I simply stamped this new background image (D1099)(which could be used a background, by itself, or each image could be used on it own.) Tip - buy two unmounted versions of this stamp. Keep on in tact to use as a background and cut the other up so you have four tiny summer stamps!
It's hard to see but I stamped the interlocking square background (H807)on the red panel. The sentiment(1089) is a new release. I stamped it on notebook paper and used my EK Success border stamp for the edge. A yellow button mimics the "sunshine"!

Thanks for checking in today. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another DRS DT challenge!

See you soon...
