Simply Create too - Christmas in July
A little late, but here are two cards I created for the Simply Create Too challenge blog. There is still time to play in this challenge and if you have children, who like to make cards - there is a separate kids category. Not many kids play in there - the chances of winning are high!
Since I am not from this country and since I am fairly new to blogging, I was wondering what to do with that theme. So I took this quite literally and had some fun with those cards. The surfing snowman I made with a die from Papertrey, and masked off an old Penny Black stamp, to put the snowman on it. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo, as are the snowman's sunglasses.
I colored it with chalks and Copics. The snowman is partially elevated with a foam dot.
The second card was easy too. Not my usual style, but I like it. Its funny, isn't it? I took some Martha Stewart paper and cut off the wintery houses at the bottom half of it. I masked the sun and sponged it. I also sponged the sky and water. The palm trees are from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment is from Hero Arts
And now, as promised some of my Germany vacation pictures:
