Hello friends and followers hope you are enjoying the start to your week! Not sure if any of you follow the show Long Island Medium but my daughter and I LOVE that show and Theresa Caputo and we had the opportunity to go see her in a group setting. My husband, son and our son's girlfriend all decided to tag along for the trip (but not to see the show) so we just made a fun family weekend out of it.
But enough about me. I'm guessing you popped in to see what the newest challenge is for 'ABC' Challenges and to see what I've made to share with and inspire you. The theme this week is "Summer" and we want to see what summer represents to you. Is it sailing, butterflies, bumblebees, flowers, gardening, laying on the beach? Here's my Summer theme card...
I made this card for my friend Jeanne who has an "almost" summer birthday in June. Jeanne loves to wear really fun cowboy boots. When I showed this card to my husband he said "there's not nearly enough bling on those boots to belong to Jeanne" - lol. Purple is also one of Jeanne's favorite colors so I used lots of that.
I stamped my own background added a bit of bling with my Versamark pen and some dazzling diamonds on the stars. Then I added just touch more bling with some teeny little rhinestones too. Of course it couldn't be all sweet and soft so I added a bit of texture with the burlap ribbon and the hemp twine rope. You can't see it really well in this photo but I also embossed the card base (6" square) and sanded the embossed portion to give it a western feel.
Jeanne loved this card and I hope you did too! I would love to see what you make this week to share with us at 'ABC' Challenges so go get 'er done! My lovely DT teamies have also prepared some wonderful cards to share with you so be sure to pop in and visit them as well.
Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
