Links to the teams (Divas and Dazzlers) are in my sidebar. We are a group of friends who enjoy surprising each other with images and miscellaneous papers, embellishments, etc. We all make a card with the kit and post our cards on the 15th of each month.
Due to being away to help my folks during May, and then trying to keep up with my job in June, my cards are late :(. Thanks everyone for your prayers and understanding!
Here is my May card, kit by Jeanette:
It's an A7 size card to give me more real estate to show off the fun image and papers.
The image and sentiment is from the set "Picture Perfect" by Art Impressions. The picture frame is by Recollections, it's white and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers, with the bottom edge decorated with Washi tape.

The inside is decorated with more of the great paper, Washi tape and camera sticker.

Hampton Art Flashback Viewfinder (large camera on inside)
Hampton Art Flashback Timeline (stripes on card front)
Part of the challenge was to post a past or current memory that means a lot to us. Well, I was able to spend Mother's Day with my Mom in May and that was really special. My folks live on the West Coast, and I live on the East Coast, so spending Mother's Day with her was a real treat.
Thank you Jeanette, for sending such a great kit for us to play with! Using Washi tape was a first for me and it was pretty cool. Now I see why everyone makes a fuss over it!
Now for June's card:
The kit contained a strip of stamped flip flop images, and some extra flip flops stamped on single squares of card stock, by CTMH. Here's my card:
I cut out the "Fun in the Sun" stamped sentiment (also CTMH) and colored each with markers. The yellow DP is from Recollections "All Seasons" and has been border punched with a Fiskars circle punch.
Melina also included the Sun die cut (Cricut), pale yellow blossom, twine and button. I painted on some yellow Stickles and attached them together to make the sun. Those adorable flip flops are by Joleen and were also a part of the kit.
Here's a view of the inside, where I used the flip flop image, her popsicle ribbon (American Crafts) and the other DP that Melina sent us. (DCWV)
Thank you Melina, for such a fun, get-in-the-mood-for-summer card kit!! I really had a blast creating with it and hope that you like the result!
Now, I'm off to visit the blogs of my Darling friends and see what they've been up to with the June challenge. Take a few minutes and visit their blogs (links on the right) - you will be glad that you did!
