Loving Summer

 It is time for a new challenge at the Die Cut Diva's - Summer Activities.  And sponsored by Dies R Us.

I love summer: sunshine, blue skies, flowers, gardens, outdoor barbeques, trips to the beach.  Trips to the beach?  Here in the Pacific NW, we don't have very many sandy beaches.  But I love the beach whether rocky or sandy.  There are several lakes in Canada that have lovely sand.  Hopefully we can get up there soon for Kayaking, not surfboarding! as on this card.

I have a digital image of surfboards in sand but no Kayaks, so I used the surfboards on my card instead.  I printed them on three different designer papers then fussy cut.  I actually sliced the Kraft paper so I could put them down in the "sand".  Also sponged the Kraft a bit so it would look more like sand.  After tearing the blue paper, I put Stardust and Baby Blue Stickles on for the waves and foam.  The chair and flip flops are die cuts from an Impression Obsession die, Beach Chair.
