I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Life Is Meant to Be Enjoyed

Happy Sunday,

I sure hope you are enjoying yours. All is well here.

I've been doing some stamping this morning, as well as a little yesterday afternoon. Of course, my favorite weekend relaxation.

Since it's Sunday, it's time for a new Paper Players challenge, where Claire has a fun summertime theme. Using some fun beach themed patterned papers and a Pure Innocence stamps set, I made this card to fit the theme.

This is a pretty simple card. I used a Concord and 9th die to cut the top layer of patterned paper. The stitched circle is Die-namics and the banner die is Mama Elephant. Taking colors from the papers, I used Copics to color the image. Her swimsuit is paper pieced with the reverse side of the flip flops sheet.

The inside is nice and simple as well.

Have a great Sunday afternoon. I may be back with a second post later this evening. Depends on if I finish my next project.

Thanks for stopping in. It's always appreciated!
