Surf’s Up!

CCEE1305 Surfs Up wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Joanne Grzelak continues to issue the challenges.

Joanne say’s that in the Northern Hemisphere they are in the midst of winter, so let’s think HOT. Create a card that is ‘hot’ in temperature, theme, or taste. Could be a sun, a hot pepper, a summer scene, a romance theme…..the variations are endless.

Well it isn’t hard to think hot when you are living in the Southern Hemisphere especially if you live in Australia like I do. We are in the middle of summer and have just recently had a heatwave through the country, thank goodness for air conditioners Smile.

For my card today I decided to go with the summer/beach theme and I used the Penny Black Fun in the Sun stamp set which I have had for over a year and it has been sitting in my please use me box all that time LOL. It has now finally been inked I am pleased to say.

As you can see I have created another pop up card using the Sizzix Pop N Cuts dies, this one uses the base die and then the Pop N Cuts Insert Label 3D. I am having so much fun creating these pop up cards. I still have a few I haven’t used as yet, but I plan to fix that very soon Smile.

As soon as I saw the pop-up I knew it had to be your card. Fun in the sun is right, and gosh, this conjures up images of a hot sunny day. No goose pimples as they shiver on an Irish beach, so I'm glad she has her sun-hat for some extra protection. It reminds me of when we were in mainland Greece a couple of years ago, quite late in the year and after the tourist season. All the locals would come out and just drift in the sea chatting, and all you could see were heads with hats :D.
