Mo's Challenge using Cheery Lynn Designs dies (love new "goodies")

"having a heat wave....a tropical heat wave " yea right!!! where are my palm trees and hammock, where is the cool clear blue water, where is... etc etc etc....yep...all we have is the heat!!! thought a big storm was coming but it didnt happen..had the thunder....but never any rain! Soooooo have had a blast playing with my goodies purchased from last weekend...

purchased some more of the Cherry Lynn dies - love 'em... made a simple card here WITH the light green Pearl pen I also takes practice making the pearl drops but will sure save some $$ when I get the hang of it...after I used the Cuttlebug to cut the dies...stenciled the card with the negative and then added the used is Memento's Bamboo Leaves

entering this post with both cards over at the challenge at Totally Gorjuss - to use punch or die

 still had time to keep stamping and thought I would pop over to a favorite challenge that I havent played at in almost a year...Mo's Digital Challenge

this week their challenge is Summer Vacation - well I wanted to make a little book for my grankids so printed out this adorable image called They Grow So Fast and its summer so their imaginations are at work as they play outside (inside LOL)...

 printed this story off the internet
 and here's the whole card!

used my new Cherry Lynn dies  - the Fanciful Flourish and Italian Flourish. I just cut them to make a border around the image.
The background is retired dp from SU and the cardbase is SU's Not Quite Navy.
Copics used: C2, E00,31,25,29,47...YG03, G99, B95,97
ink is Memento's Danube Blue using sponging technique

ok - this is long enough post...and still a have a few more cards to post (-:
stay cool
