Summer Has Arrived

It's a great day here in San Diego.  The sun is shinning, I can see it from my window.  I can't wait to get out there and enjoy the beauty of it all.

Yes...today's challenge is Summer.

But first...let me get to the winners from this last week.

And the winner is...Monika/Buzsy

What an adorable box...wouldn't you want to get a treat in something like this?
Congratulations Monika.  You can email your contact info to smiles4126@aol.com and we'll get that right out to you.

here are some other great gifts that were submitted this week.

All I can say is...wow.  Now...on with this weeks challenge.

As I mentioned before...challenge #22 is Summer.  For me...Summer is the beach, the sand, the waves, the water and most of all...the sunshine.
 I die cut 2 different sized circled...1" & 2"...then stamped them with the check background from Background Basics 1.  On the larger circle I cut in about 1/2" all the way around then scrunched it a little.  for the smaller circle I just distressed the edges with my scissors.

The pinwheel is a piece of cake.
Start off with a square...size depends on how big you want the pinwheel.  and score from corner to corner
Then cut the corners a little more then half way to the center.
fold one section of each corner to the center and pin or use a brad to hold it together.  Really a fun little embellishment to any card or page.

The sand was made by adding you're so fine glitter to torn pieces of paper.  I layered them up to add dimension to the sand.  The seashells are from the Sea Life set and I thought were a nice addition.

The background on the card base is from the Vintage Treasures set.  I used direct to paper to color the sky and sea.

Now...it's your turn.  Show us your cards or projects with a Summer theme.
