Happy Tuesday!

It's time for another 

Here is the inspirational photo:

Is that a great inspirational photo or what?

A great photo to kick off the first month of summer!

Take a look at who are our wonderful sponsors this week:

Bugaboo Stamps --- Prize is 7 Digis

AJ's Digi Shoppe - Prize is 2 Complete sets of stamps or 4 Sets of paper. 

Dilly Beans Digi Stamps - Prize is 3 Digis. 

A big thank you to all of them!

Here is my card for some inspiration:

STAMPS: Beach Baby 2 (Bugaboo Stamps); Sentiment (Paper Smooches).
PAPER: White & Red cardstock; DP - Summer (American Crafts).
INK: Copics on image.  Black (Colorbox).
EXTRAS: Scallop circle die (Spellbinders); Basic circle die (Spellbinders); Cloud die (Taylored Expressions Rainy Days); Teal chevron ribbon; red baker's twine; red heart button.

I chose one of the Bugaboo Stamps, Beach Baby 2, offered to the team for my card.  Isn't she adorable?  She was perfect for my card as this is our second summer to have a pool and I've been excited to swim again.  It's not huge, but big enough to swim some laps, water walk, water aerobics and even just chill and cool off.  We've been having lower than normal temps, though and so the "cool" off part is pretty darn COLD! But temps will be climbing in the 90s later this week so I can't wait!

Anyway, I digress, back to my card.  I colored the image with Copics, added some diamond Stickles to the water drops and Glossy Accents to the sunglasses.  I made a peep hole from the background paper and set the image behind it.  Then placed the scalloped circle die on top.  I cut a cloud die to make the sentiment tag that I tied to the chevron ribbon and then added a heart button.  I decided to keep the card fairly clean and simple to focus on the image.
