Summer/Winter

I like to create for all of the seasons so todays post is going to cover Summer and Winter. 

My first card goes along with the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week. It is a fun sketch, as usual and what made it even more fun for me was using these amazing papers by Bo Bunny.  When I first saw this collection in my LSS, I wanted every single piece and that isn't always the case with a new collection for me.   Those little squares that are on the side are actually cut from one of the patterned papers.
Notice the little sparkle along the wave edges in the patterned paper? I added some Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip.  This is the kind of paint that you get in the t-shirt decorating section. It works wonderfully on paper projects and I just love this glitter because it gives some sparkle and still lets the underneath pattern and color show through. The Splash Zone piece is cut from another piece of the patterned paper in this collection.

This little card fits with the Caarvarks blog challenge.  It is hosted by JustRite stamps.  My card is a mini card created to hold a little gift card inside.  Something that is always needed at Christmas. 
I love stamping with JustRite stamps. I love that you can change the borders and words to kind of make them your own.  I stamped this in green and then added accents with Copic Markers and some rhinestones.  Notice the cardstock too. That is Core'dinations Core Impressions. The embossed design is already in it.
Here is my little inside pocket.  A gift card just slips right inside. 
And a couple photos...
A couple more from one of our park visits.  Our grandson was on a walking adventure and it is so cute to watch him looking out for "BIG animals"!!!
Here he is trying to master some play equipment that is a bit too big for him.  It helps to have mom's help.
This one was more his size. Gotta love that cute face!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
