VSN - Water at the Summer Festival

I had the honor of hosting one of the VSN challenges on SCS last night. It was soooo much fun.

This VSN's theme is Summer Festivals. There was a VSN Mini last month with 3 challenges. Last night there were 5 challenges, including mine. Today there are 11 challenges. Check it out and play along. It's a lot of fun.

When we lived in northern Missouri the town had a summer festival. One of the favorite events at the festival was the Fire Hose Tug of War. Two teams, two fire hoses, and a bucket hanging on a wire up above. The object was for one team to use the water sprayed from their fire hose to move the bucket into the other team’s end zone. As you can imagine, there was a lot of water and the children that ventured close loved its cooling spray.

My challenge titled "Water" simply calls for using water in some way while making a card. 

My favorite way to add water to cards is with any of the varieties of color crystals that activate with water - like Ken Oliver's Color Burst. I think it's the surprise element I like. Tap on a bit of crystals, spray with a mist of water, and SURPRISE!

There is a one hour time limit for making VSN cards. This one took me 45 minutes.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

AWW VSN is one of my faves at SCS but my. crazy. busy, life has me going 900 mph - but i love living vicariously through you! I adore the KO colorbursts! But WOW that TT peony - gorgeous! That's one of my fave flower companies (had to cancel the monthly club after they stacked up around here!) Beautifully colored in yellow! Love the story of the fire house and bucket what a fun memory! I'd get in line for that - even today! :) HUGS and happy VSN!
