Enjoy The Summer!

Happy TGIF, everyone! Thank you so much for the congratulations for winning the July Cricut 360 prize and thank you so much to those who voted! I sincerely appreciate it!
I have a card to enter into a few challenges today. This week's challenge at Cricut 360 is refreshing and what better way to refresh than by drifting in a raft on a lazy river? I combined several different carts for this one. I used Campin Critters for the lake and trees and for the bear peeking from behind the tree. I used Pack Your Bags for the girl drifting in the raft. I used Country Life for the sun and Camp Out for the sign.

Believe it or not, I used all scraps for this project! I have drawers and drawers full of scrap paper. I wish I had it organized by color, but I do have it organized by patterned or  solid. I have a serious paper problem. I have all these drawers overflowing with paper and what is one of the first things I head to in a craft store? Paper! I am trying to use up some scraps, so Becky's challenge at Squirly Girl Creations was perfect for me! The challenge is to use a K Andrew stamp and your scraps. I am just sneaking in under her deadline. So except for the blue, which I know is Core-Couture, I'm not sure of the brands of the other paper.

Recipe:
  • Campin Critters - outdoor scene at 6", bear 3"
  • Pack Your Bags - girl in raft 2"
  • Country Life - sun 2"
  • Camp Out - sign 2 1/2"
  • Branches Embossing Folder - dark green grass
  • Polka Dots Embossing Folder - trees
  • Swiss Dots Embossing Folder - light green grass
  • Tim Holtz Wood Grain Embossing Folder - dock
  • Flower Brad - flower in her hair, with yellow crystal added
  • Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink - edges of the sign
  • K Andrew Stamp - Splashtastic Summer - click HERE to purchase your own set!
I am entering the card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have  GREAT weekend :)

Lisa, this card is great! You have whole drawers of scraps of paper? That makes me feel a little better...I just have a crate sitting by my feet that is overflowing with paper. I have two binders that I have labeled and I keep telling myself I am going to cut up the paper and put it in these labeled binders while I watch TV at night...sigh...hasn't happened yet! Have a good weekend babe! chrissandlou.blogspot.com
