Summer Friends -- For Dies R Us Challenges

 July 1 -- These months go so fast, don't they?  July 1 means the start of a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges.  The requirements are easy peasy.  The theme is anything goes, and use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store.  They sell lots and lots of wonderful dies, so that's really easy to do!  Shop the Dies R Us Store and you'll see for yourself!

I have a few friends that live out of state and I try to send them cards every week or so.  I'm always in need of friendship cards.  So, when I saw this Crafter's Companion connecting word die, I knew I had to have it...

I cut the 'Friend' word die out of the middle of the 6x6 card, then put the green card behind it to add some stability.  I found the pretty floral paper in my stash, and it looked like summer to me, so I used it to add color to the panels of the card.  The dragonfly die is by Cheery Lynn.  I have used the small one here, which is no longer available, but the large dragonfly size is.

I hope you can join us these next 2 weeks for our 'Anything Goes' with a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store challenge!  A gift certificate will be awarded, and 3 designer choice awards. 

For those of you living in Canada, check out the Didi Crafts Store -- awesome products and great prizes on shipping! 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- July Linky Party
Try it on Tuesdays -- Here Comes Summer

I remember when you and I were just starting out with the Crop Chocolate challenges 😉. Take care!
