Pool side Summer card Challenge ....


Well its a beautiful warm sunny day here in San Diego ... Tomorrow we are heading to a 93rd birthday party ... I better get cracking on a card . Mrs Walters used to be a card maker herself ... so every year I try to out do myself .... last years card was pretty spectacular .... For now I am taking the afternoon off and heading out for lunch with Reggie and taking the dogs to the beach.

Turtle Beach Card with Stamping on Cork
Background stamping and the first stamp I ever bought the Beach Bag by The Rubber Cafe ... 

This weeks challenge is Summer themed cards and I have been working on them ... I was surfing around the other night and found two really cute ideas I would love to give them credit but I can not find where I saw the cards ... sometimes when I am out in blogland I get lost ... for these cards I used old school Rubber Cafe stamps and you have never seen them before ... we will be putting these up online for a limited time only while inventory lasts we only have a few .
Michelle asked where all the blue comes from when I take my pictures ... here is my back drop .... If you take pictures by your Pool be careful I have lost a few cards this  way .


Hope you are enjoying your day

and that pool....wonder if I'd get the same effect if I took them next to my 20 year old above ground pool! LOL!
