Surf's Up!

I'm back from my whirlwind, two week vacation which included 3 days at the beach! We didn't do any surfing, but still, I couldn't resist using this cool new Tom image, part of the July Offer of the Month.

And now that I've jumped back into cardmaking, I wanted to participate in a few challenges. So, I'm entering these two card challenges:
And here are a few pictures from one of my days at the beach:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

One for the Road

We leave in about an hour for our trip, but I wanted to leave you with one last card. I searched for Red, White and Blue challenge on the 4th of July and was halfway through making the card before I realized that the challenge was from May. Oops! lol! :)

Have a great weekend!

A Fun Fab Friday

This week's Fab Friday is a free find - this month's freebie image over at DigiStamp Boutique.

Coincidentally, I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow morning. I hope to be doing a little swimming of my own (i a hotel pool) by tomorrow night!

Have a wonderful two weeks!

Fab Fourth Fab Friday

This week's Fab Friday post has a 4th of July theme. I recently signed up to receive emails from Bo Bunny (love their paper!). I received an email today promoting their free desktop calendar themed wallpaper. This month's wallpaper has a patriotic red, white and blue theme. Great! They even have a detailed PDF file with instructions on how to upload your own photos into the wallpaper template. Fun! I can't wait to try it out! Here's the link:

Bo Bunny Freebies

Today's card isn't exactly Fourth of July, but it does feature this Kraftin Kimmie bathing suit beauty, Eleanor. For me, Fourth of July means hot weather and swimming at the lake! (Oh, and fireworks, too, of course!) I am so happy to finally have time to participate in one of Kraftin' Kimmies challenges again. And this week's challenge is "Make a Splash". This was perfect as I own three swimming themed different Kraftim Kimmie stamps.

For all those in the U.S. - Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
