Jaydee has a fun theme challenge for us over at the Paper Players this week:
I’m ready for a Summer holiday, how about you? My kids have four more days of school, and then we’ll be celebrating Summer in our household. Yippee! I love having them home for the summer.
I was kinda stumped by this theme for a little while. I don’t have any beach or pool themed stamps. Nor do I have any sunglasses stamps nor flip-flops stamps. I wasn’t sure what to do. But then I focused on colors, and I knew I wanted to use Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush (the names are summery, right?). And the Strawberry Slush made me think of a summery drink, and then I thought of using the Happy Hour stamp set. Oh, the way the mind works!
When I made this I was picturing a Strawberry daiquiri and a Margarita. Sounds good!
Some of you have asked me to show the inside of my cards. Well, there isn’t usually much to show as I don’t often do anything on the inside. I feel lucky to get the outside finished on most days. But I love the sentiments that come with this set, and decided to finish the inside on this one.
I hope you can join us at the Paper Players this week! Meanwhile, take a look at what the rest of this team did with this sketch:
