Try It Out Tuesday - Red, White and Blue!

Sorry for this being late, but I had to work at school later last night and when I got home and was going to work on my card, Tiffany and Chris and the baby showed up early from Virginia for the weekend! Gotta have as much Nana time as I can get. We
re going to have a wonderful weekend and celebrate my granddaughters first birthdays together. What a wonderful celebration!

When I think of the 4th of July, I think of two things - barbeques and the beach! Two of life's most precious pleasures if you ask me! The barbeques are held with friends and family and the beach can be a great thing to do with friends or on your own. I've been talking with my friend Sonya so much lately and it's brought back such great memories of both of these fun activities. We'd go to the beach and spend so much time out in the sun playing and relaxing and having a blast. Loved the swimsuits back then, but I really liked my body much more back then than I do now!

It's Tuesday and that's Try It Out Tuesday at Follow Your Heart! Suzanne challenged us on Susana's Design Team for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD), to make a card with red, white and blue and I knew exactly the stamp I wanted to do and what I wanted to do with it. I chose Roxy from Rubber Romance and designed the card in the shape of a beach ball! Yep, I'd chose the beach with friends or by myself! I colored her with copics and used my spica glitter pen for the pole on the umbrella and added some Glossy Accents to the umbrella and her yellow polka dot bikini to give it some shine. I added some white Smooch to the inside of the umbrella. Love my new flower punch (I need to pick up the larger punches too!) and put some rhinestones, red, white and blue, in the middle and tied the side together with a red bow. Pretty easy, but I think she came out great!

We have someone really special joining us at SCACD for this week and that's Jana, our Spotlight Stamper! Make sure you stop over and give her some love! And drop over at Follow Your Heart and take a look at the gorgeous and fun cards and projects my fellow DT buddies have come up with. They're absolutely fabulous! And until later, make sure you take care of that itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini!

Card Ingredients:

Roxy by Rubber Romance, Smooch, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Glossy Accents, nestabilities, cricut, EK Success Flower Power punch, Spica Glitter Pen, ribbon, copics.
