Sea You Soon -- For Dies R Us Challenges

 August 1 --the months keep flying by!  August 1 means there is a new challenge starting on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  This month, the theme is Summer.  Yea, that's a fun theme! Make sure to use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store, follow the theme, and you're all set! 

I love lighthouses, and kayaking to my favorite ones in the Apostle Islands.  When I think of summer, I think of kayaking trips on Lake Superior.  Those were my thought when I created this card:

The lighthouse scene die is from Hero Arts.  It's called Looking Glass Lighthouse. I colored it with Copic markers. I also used the Hero Arts Looking Glass Circle & Square Frames die. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts  Seas the Day clear stamp set.  I cut the sentiment out with Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strip Dies. The card is finished off with some Unicorn Pearls -- also from Pink & Main.

It's been nearly a month since I fractured my knee.  I had this card made before it happened.  I This will be my last post until I'm allowed to put weight on my knee.  I can't navigate stairs, and my craft room is in the basement.  It's looking like a couple more months of being in a wheelchair, and I'll hopefully be ready to walk again!

I hope you can join us this month for the Anything Goes Challenges. Enjoy the summer!
