Sentimental Sundays "Celebrate Summer" blog hop!

Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays “Celebrate Summer” blog hop! 


You should have arrived here from Antoinette's blog. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. 

Tuesday, June 21st, is the official first day of summer in the northern hemisphere and we are ready for all the summer fun to begin. For our friends down under who are moving into their winter months and may not feel like creating a summery project, they may be making “Sparkly or Shimmery” projects. What girl doesn’t like her bling?

Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th.

Today, I've chosen to create a summer-themed CAS card.  I've used a lot of Spellbinder dies and some burlap, pearls, and a Sharpie white poster paint pen and that's it!  The sentiment is from the newly released Whimsy Stamps Summer Letter Seals.  I kind of let all the papers do the work on this one :)




Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Summer Letter Seals; Paper: Cosmo Cricket UPcyle; Embellishments: pearls, burlap; Tools: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, Sharpie white poster paint pen

Your next stop on the hop is Di's blog.  If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. 

Also, we hope you will join in our “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. Our sponsor is Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

This card is a keeper. I receive special handmade cards sometimes that I keep out and admire. This would be one of those cards. So much detail went into the card and I love every little thing you did. GENIUS!
