Summer Greetings!

Hello!  My family and I have been trekking across the United States this week on our way to visit family we haven’t been able to see in two years. I found a quick moment to myself (and internet access), so I thought I’d pop on to share a card I made before we left.  This card uses a surprising amount of supplies, but I’m always quite tickled when so many products work together. 
First up, I colored the darling tiger from Pretty Pink Posh’s Summer Fun Stamp Set and used the Summer Fun Coordinating Dies to cut it out. I hand cut a mound of sand, inking the edges to add a bit of depth. The tiger seemed lonely, so I colored a beach ball for him to play with. (It’s part of the PPP Summer Wreath Stamp Set and I also used the Coordinating Dies.). To fully embrace the beach idea, I added the ocean using the new Stitched Waves Dies.  I needed a palm tree, but I didn’t have one the right size, so I made one using a trunk from the Nature Essentials Dies and palms from the Hibiscus Flowers Stamp Set and Dies.  I popped the entire scene up and finished off my card with a sentiment from the Summer Wreath Stamp Set.
I truly can’t look at this card without smiling. It just makes me happy.  I hope you enjoy it, too!
