It is the 15th of the month and time for a new challenge at DIES R US. This time it is all about summer. One of my favorite summertime activities has always been boating and spending time at the lake, Now I am more of a noodle type of person... just give me a water noodle and I will drift along in the lake for hours, but the rest of the family loved to water ski and tube. When we moved to California, Lake Whiskytown was a short 15 minutes from our house so we would get off work and head for the lake. Unfortunately, all the wooded area around Whiskytown was destroyed in the Carr fire last summer. It will take a few years for it to be as beautiful as it once was. This box card is a reminder of the fun times we had there.
These are the dies I used to make the card.

What a shame about the forest being destroyed. So much devastation down there. I'm like you... love to drift or float quietly, but I did enjoy innertubing on a snow hill. What a fantastic project here, Kathy! You have so many great dies. Those kids sure look like they're having fun!ReplyDelete
