Dies R Us Christmas in July

For this challenge, at Dies R Us Challenge Blog I used two of my favorite dies.  I have used the Impression Obsession Pine branch so often there is no longer any paint on it.  Since I usually use at least two on each card, I decided to purchase a second one so I could cut two at a time. The Sue Wilson garland is another one of those dies that I reach for often.  In fact, I use the little white berries on almost every card I make.  I had the red frame left over from another project so I just backed it with some Mintay paper.  Isn't that deer adorable?

Double D Let's Go to the Beach

Let's Go To The BEACH!

Dar has given us some wonderful inspiration for this challenge at Double D Challenge Blog.  I focused on the light house and the sea shells for my inspiration. 

I decided to make a bridge card for this challenge.  I started with a blue card base and sponged some chouds on top of the blue.  I cut the water with a Poppy Stamp die that I have had for quite some time and sponged with blue.  The boat is from the same Poppy Stamp die set. I had an Elizabeth Craft light house sent to me by a friend(thanks Barb) and the bird is a Cheopo die.  I added a few birds from Sue Wilson and stamped a piece of kraft card with seashells from Gina K designs.

We hope you will join us for our beach challenge.  Since most beaches are closed at this time,  maybe creating something beachy will remind you of the good old days.  We hope you will check out the inspiration from the team and then join us at  Double D Challenge Blog.
