color challenge 128

groovy skiesa few weeks ago, my kids and i went to my good friend’s house in richmond, va. we had such a fun time visiting with them. they just moved back to virginia from connecticut. we’re so glad they’re back so close to us.

i thought of her while making the splitcoast challenge this week. since i’m still quite new to this whole challenge thing, i decided to keep it simple. i really liked the color combination.

i started with cardstock that was 4 1/4″ x 11″. folded it in half at 5 1/2″. i cut about 1 1/2″ off the right side of the card and then layered the soft sky onto that. used by small corner rounder without the guard to make the scallops along the edge. i also punched holes into each scallop with the paper piercing tool from the crafters tool kit. on the whisper white layer, i stamped flowers from the just like you set in groovy guava and soft sky. i also stamped and cut out three flowers in groovy guava and adhered them using dimensionals. the saying is from define your life and is stamped in stazon black. that panel is layered onto groovy guava and then again on soft sky. i added one of those cute little black library clips as an accent.

kyle at little beachkids & kyle at little beachin addition to a little stamping, we had another fabulous day at the “little beach” as evident by the pictures of the frolicking kids and dog. the kids (and the dog) just can’t get enough of the water or the sand, as usual. the weather has been perfect for lounging and chatting while we watch the pelicans dive into the water to kyle & kids at the little beachnate & kylecatch some fish. there’s only one bad thing… you know all those planes that carry those banners down the beach? well, the airport is right where the “little beach” is. do you know how many webkinz banners flew by us today? lemme tell ya’… way too many!!!

enjoy the rest of your evening! hope to have more stuff tomorrow. i’m off to stamp some more.
