Hello! (A summer-themed card)


Hello for the second time this week - and it's only Tuesday! I'm back again with another creation. I just ordered some new supplies from Simon Says Stamp on Sunday and noticed one of their weekly challenges. I decided to play along!


The theme of the challenge is "Shake It Up". Most of my project was created using retired My Craft Spot dies. I did use a stamp for the little bear and coloured her up with some summery colours. I embossed the cloud background and added a little gem to her cup. I was looking out my window when I got home today and wishing that it was summer - so I brought summer to the craft room!!  The idea was to be a picture within a picture - with some creative liberties taken with the bear (and water splashes) hanging out of the actual photo.


In order to meet the "shake" part of the challenge requirements, I added an Action Wobble to my speech bubble. It's much easier to attach an Action Wobble than it is to photograph one in action!

Well Hello to you too, Kate. It's been a while. This is such a darling card. I would have thought to use an action wobble for the shake element. Must easier than a shaker card that's for sure.

Hello Kate: I wanted to thank you personally for your sweet comment on my CASology card for the DISTRESS challenge, I'm a newbie at CAS cards, at the beginning I felt like all that white empty space was like wasted but, the more I tried the more I started to like it and now, even if I'm not an expert, I've learned a lot just by participating in the challenges.
I'm indeed a Triathlete and a 3 time Iron Man. I'm almost 65 years old now and my last Iron Distance race was in 2011, at the ripe age of 60, in North Carolina. I don't do races anymore but I still swim, bike and run regularly.
Thank you again for your sweet comment, hope to see you in the gallery again.
Big Hugs.
Maria.
