curtain call flip flops: let's chill.





There is still time to join us for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  

You have until June 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

So much fun, eh?!  I was inspired by the water and the summer time theme!  BTW, Happy First Day of Summer!



So, I've had the We R Memory Keepers embossing folder for a while and thought it would be perfect for today's card!

cardstock:  papertrey ink kraft, strathmore watercolor, american crafts gold glitter  stamps:  reverse confetti/let's chill ink:  ranger/archival/black  other:  reverse confetti/let's chill confetti cuts, divine twine, studio calico wood veneer, misc washi, wood veneer from upcycled mama elephant calendar

It's super fun teamed up with the Reverse Confetti Let's Chill Stamps & coordinating Confetti Cuts!  Think Green Tea popsicle...YUM.  Do you see the popsicle stick?  I upcycled a vintage mama elephant calendar.

I love the colors of Peerless watercolors.  I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process and to create those swirls.

I was also inspired by Tag You're it!



Make sure you check out the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration.

In honor of today being Father's Day, I wanted to post this.  It's circa 1996, my girl with my Dad. 



Hope everyone has a fantastic day!
