Summer Memories

Happy Thursday all,

Back once again to share a card for Whimsy Stamps
with you.

Summer is really here, today we are suppose to hit the mid 90's with a lots of humidity. Great day to be in the pool or by the ocean waters.

This little cutie is a Meljens Design image called Beach Bum Baby and I just adore this little guy. Sorry but the show of the plumber crack is just too precious and reminds me of my little guy Nicholas. Poor thing has no rear end and has a  heck of a time keeping his trunks up.
Memories I will have for ever and isn't that what summer days are all about?

For my card, I used this week's sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, along with these beautiful papers from Echo Park Summer Days, the perfect sentiment is from Raindrop Echo designs Summer Sentiments. Both images can be found in the Whimsy Stamps store. My card base and matting is PTI Hawaiian Shores and Lemon Tart, ribbon PTI Hawaiian Shores saddle stitch, flowers are Prima and the middle plastic one is from Gina K with a Sugar coated Doodlebug brad.Image is colored with Copic, I added a bit of Clear Sakura gel pen along the sand to give it a bit of twinkle and then added Basic Grey rhinestones

For more inspiration, please visit the Whimsy Inspirations blog to see the beautiful creations  my fellow design teammates are sharing.

Thanks for visiting, have a great day and stay COOL!

Awesome card, Jackie! The plumber's crack on the image is part of what makes it so adorable. My friend's little guy spends half his time that way. lol I love the papers and colors you chose.
