Enjoy a Relaxing Day!

I love masculine cards, but never seem to make them. I'm not sure why. But it's just the way it is.

So... I was delighted when I heard that Sweet Stampin' is having a Father's Day/Special Man sort of challenge this week. I hope you will join in... I'd love to see your masculine creations, too!

Here's my card for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge:

It's Blog Hop Time

Welcome to the Start of Summer Design Team 
Showcase Blog Hop 
created by the JessicaLynnOriginal 
June 2015 – January 2016 Design Team! 

Today we are featuring projects using the JessicaLynnOriginal Brentwood Owl’s Summertime Fun image as we showcase and introduce our members! This fun stamp captures that summer vacation or holiday feel and can be used in many ways. Put your feet up and grab a cool drink to sip as you travel along the hop, getting inspired by the different takes from each of our designers. If you are coming from Vickie'sblog, then you're in the right place.

Summertime Fun should ALWAYS include time at the beach, don’t you think? There’s nothing quite like listening to the waves while searching for seashells or building sandcastles. Oh and sipping a cool drink makes it even more fun!

Here’s the card I made:

Can you tell I like seashells?

Here’s the inside of my card:

Win a prize!

Let me know what you think in the comments below. Comment on each of the blogs in the hop and you will be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate towards anything at! After the hop, Jessica will randomly select a winner and announce the lucky person on her blog on Sunday, May 24th.

Next is Wiebke's blog where she has a Sunshine on a Cloudy Day sort of card to show you! Be sure to check out her clouds!

Bertha Has A Big Mouth

I love Art Impressions stamps! I own several. However, I had never EVER seen Bertha Big Mouth until Susanna sent the image for the May image for Imke's group on SCS. 

Thank you, Susanna! This is such a fun image to create with!!!

BTW, Susanna also sent the instructions for assembling... unfortunately, I couldn't figure out the instructions, so I just came up with my own plan. EEK!

Here's the card I made: 

 Yes, Big Mouth Bertha's mouth really does move by pulling the tab!
