Summertime Vacation Challenge

Today the Design Team has been challenged to make a card or project that reflects something we'll be doing this summer. Well, right now we are visiting Mickey and friends, but we are hoping to hit one of the beaches on our way out. We have a specific one in mind, but I'll have to wait and see if that's the one we end up visiting or not. Anyhow, we may see some sea creatures, so I thought I would use this sea turtle for my first card. The turtle is from the new Summer Mix that will begin to ship on July 1st.

Stamps: Summertime Celebration Mix Set, Treasured Trinkets Mix Set
Card Stock: Creme De Menthe (GKD), Ocean Tides (PTI), Salt Air (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: Onyx Black VersaFine, Ocean Tide
Accessories: Label #9 Nestabilites (Spellbinders), Tiny Bubble Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Word Window Punch (SU), Rhinestone Jewels (SU), Ocean Tides Twill Ribbon, Foam Tape

At the same beach, we are hoping to do some snorkeling and shelling. The kids will have so much fun finding their own shells, so I am hoping we have some success with this. Here's my card using the pretty shells from Summertime Celebration Mix set as well.

Stamps: Summertime Celebration Mix Set, Turn Towards the Sun Mix Set
Card Stock: White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Copic Markers, Clear Spica Glitter Pen
Accessories: Square & #15 Label Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Glue Dots, Tombo Multi Glue

The others' will be sharing their designs as well, so you may find the links to their blogs on my sidebar, and/or hop over to the LAD Blog and jump around from there.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for visiting!

There is so much eye candy here today, Rose Ann! I love the pebbled texture behind your turtle - it's perfect! Of course the little jewels are a great touch as well. It's just a super fun card!

Your second card it's so soft and pretty! I love the colors together, and your gorgeous frame you made with the die! Both are fantastic cards - perfect for summer!
