Hello there blog friends!!!! 

It's DCC at The House That Stamps Built and this time I'm the designer that creates the challenge!!!  Yippeeee!!! 

My challenge this week is (in honor of summer) Sun, Sand and Surf!  

I created the bg on this card with my Faber-Castell Gelatos on watercolor paper.  I blended them with a semi-moist wipe, adding more color as needed until I got the results I was looking for.  I love the texture the watercolor paper gave this bg.  Adding the fussy cut RI Stamp #8719-G "Flip Flops", and #2704-G "Life's a Beach" sentiment as well as the umbrella die colored with Copic Markers, finished off this CAS card.  

I hope I've inspired you to play along with my Sun, Sand and Surf challenge at The House. For more details on entering the challenge and the great prize you could win, head on over and check it out.  

And please don't miss the incredible creations by my Rock Star team mates.  They will "Wow" you.

Hello blog friends!

Quick post this morning. 

There's a nautical challenge at Outlawz CAS group this week.  Here's a card I made for it. 

I used an image from Repeat Impressions of West Quoddy Head Light. 
West Quoddy Head in Lubec, Maine, is the easternmost point of the contiguous United States and the closest point to Europe from a point in the fifty States[citation needed]. West Quoddy Head overlooks Quoddy Narrows, a strait between Canada and the United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse there to guide ships through the waterway. The current one, with distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1858. Photographs and paintings of this lighthouse are frequently reproduced. The 3rd order Fresnel lens is the only 3rd order and one of only eight Fresnel lenses still in use on the Maine Coast.[5] 

This card is also being entered in the Crazy 4 Challenges "Lighthouse" challenge.

Have a great day!
