Pool Fun--Stayin Afloat-Art Impressions

Hello!!!  Yes, I am still alive!  Harvest is still going strong!  During cherry harvest I work 7 days a week, so my crafting time is seriously limited. Pretty much for 2 months straight-- so I am seriously sleep deprived too darn it!  Sooo...that is my excuse for making this BRIGHT card-it should wake both of us up right?

I just love this Art Impressions Stayin Afloat Set from Inspiration Emporium(see coupon code below). I paired it with the perfect sentiment cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables. Love her stuff. She also has her files in the Silhouette store.

For this card I cut out these sun bathing babes and added them  onto the card with pop dots-floating in the bubbly water.  I added the Pool Fun sentiment on pop dots and sprinkled bubbles around the card too. I finished it off with the summer sun!

I am entering this into the Art Impressions weekly #113 challenge Floral Frenzy(this card made honorable mention!)-You must have at least 5 flowers on your card and by golly, the one inner tube has just 5 flowers on it-lucky me! LOL

I have been over to the newly renamed/new blog of the former Feline Playful-now re-named Paper Playful and found these challenges to enter as well:

You've got em down, Sue! These gals have style - bold, bright, jazzy style! Everything shouts "Fun in the Sun!" Love the sentiment, and those adorable bubbles.

Great card! And thank you for the list of summertime challenges.

Yup....remember those days on the tube from a car. I have that cut, but don't think I have that AI image and it's wonderful. You did a great , fun job!

Sue said...

What a beautiful, bright fun card. Gotta love these gals. I have this stamp and haven't inked it up yet, but you have inspired me! Love the sun and the words, just delightful.

Your Cherry Season is like my Tax season used to be before I retired, so I can really relate. Hang in there, the good thing is, it eventually ends!!!!


Sandy said...

What a wonderful card - but the question is many slightly plump women in large inner tubes, can one pool hold? And -how much water is displaced when they are floating arund??

Glenda Atkins said...

Hilarious Sue, love those bathing beauties and the large sentiment, kinda dig the sun too:O)

Karen Day said...

Sue, you are so creative in how you met the "Floral Frenzy" challenge! Thanks for sharing your fun, bright card with us at Art Impressions :o)

Love your coloring and the bubbly water! The cut file piece would be fabulous all on its own, but with these beautiful beach babes it's splendiferous!
