4CC #355 - Summer Fun {Tamie}

Good Morning, Again!

There's a new challenge up at 

Tamie is our sunny hostess and she has chosen a theme ---

I don't know about the rest of you but I am in DESPERATE NEED of some summer fun!!!

It's been an awful week.  Our cat got horribly sick last weekend and we wound up taking him to the Vet ER.  He has slowly been improving but we still don't know exactly what is wrong with him.  We've been pumping him with meds and trying to get him to eat more. 

So, I  haven't had a lot of sleep this week and for someone with chronic insomnia to begin with, it's not good.  So suffice to say, I'm a walking zombie and also late with some of my design team projects.

So late as it may be, here is my "summer fun" card ---

Stamps: Image and Sentiment - Mini Snorkel Fun Penguin (Your Next Stamp).
Paper:  White cardbase; Watercolor Paper; DP-Tasty Treats (Stampin' Up).
Ink: It's a boy (Catherine Pooler); Desert Sand (Memento); Black Onyx (Versafine).
Extras: Tag (Lil' Inker Designs); Sentiment Strip Die (My Favorite Things); Rectangle Stitched Die (Lil' Inker Designs).

I saw a Popsicle ad on The Weather Channel app that showed a kid "swimming" on a popsicle.  So that was my inspiration for my card.  I used a round stitched tag from Lil' Inker Designs for my popsicle and the inside of an MFT stitched sentiment die for the stick and cut them from watercolored paper.  

Check out my fellow Chicks' projects over at the Hen House and leave them some blog love!
