Summertime, Sun -sun-summertime

Summertime.  Sunner time.  When I was growing up my summer times were spent in the sun and in the water.  We lived by a lake and we were either in or by the water most of the day.  Good memories.
I get a chuckle when I color this digital image by Nina Jay.  It makes me think he is trying to talk himself into the first swim of the year - probably a little chilly.
I put a few real little shells along with the stamped ones (stamp by Faith Greetings) and Stickles on the sun.
Here is the sketch I used:

Clearly i Stamp - some like it hot
Ribbon Carousel - button and bow
ABC - T for two= 2 twine
Great Impression - color inside the lines
Stampin Sisters in Christ - add sparkle
Pile it On - relax
Stamptacular Sundays - wings and bling
Cutie Pie - glitter and bling
Party Time Tuesday - die cuts
Really Reasonable Ribbon - sizzlin summer colors


  1. very cute
    and the added stamped images makes a really
    nice scene as does the added real shells!

    that with us...I think I agree, that water looks chilly! =)

  4. Your card is adorable, I grew up beside a lake too and yes many an afternoon was spent cooling off in the water with the other kids. Looking back I think how lucky we were, but at the time it was just the normal thing to do and we didn't think anything of it!

  5. Hi Marsha, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
