DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #186 - Vacation

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART. The theme for this challenge is Vacation. If you use the code l01210, you'll get 10% off your purchase at DL.ART.


For my project, I created cards celebrating my favorite type of vacation - a tropical one :) I've been trying to use up papers in stash and I came across this pack from Recollections.


I love how colorful these papers are!! Some of the pages have a shimmer to them, too.


The surfboards are from My Creative Time, as is the sentiment. The banner is a Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Peach from the 2016 Spring Bundle.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves are LaLa Land Open Leaf Flourish dies and Kaiser Craft Tropical Leaves. This beautiful crinkle ribbon is Rose from the Vintage Vineyard Bundle.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Vacation project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  5. Holy cow Lisa, it's like I'm on a tropical island right now!! I can't believe how fun and sunny these are, they really do take me right to a resort in a tropical place where everything is so cheery and vibrant! I am loving your little surfboards, and the flower patterns are so perfect for your theme! Flowers and palm trees and foliage... the only thing missing is some sort of fruity drink in a coconut with a little umbrella!! Just amazing! sending hugs :)

  31. My sweetest friend, these tropical cards are absolutely gorgeous and make me think of YOU! I bet you were happy dancing while making these. :o) The bright colors are a burst of vacation indeed... and I love that you're bringing us there by via surfboard! Only you could make surfboards so festively beautiful. I love the curved sentiments and the perfect cluster of blossoms. (and I spot that beloved baby's breath... it's so dreamy.) Gorgeous work as always, my dearest Lisa. I hope your day is as lovely as you are. :o)

    Hugs and blessings,

  32. Tropical breezes, surf boards, hibiscus flowers, retro surf boards - what's not to love? It totally reminds me of Souther California back in the 60s (does that sound "surf-ish, valley-girl talk" ? LOL Beautiful cards, Lisa, and I want to go on vacation with you when you travel to this fabulous resort. Such a wonderful, wavy sentiment, too! Your designs are incredible, Miss Mermaid! xo
