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!


  1. I love the artistic coloring you did on this card, Julie. It is dreamy!! What a bummer that you're still laid up, and it sounds like it will be for a while. Praying for quick healing for you.

  2. This is such a fun card. Love those dies. I'm sorry that you can't get to your craft room, it's such great therapy when you're not your normal self. Sending prayers for quick healing of your knee. I would have hubby bring up a bunch of my crafty stuff and take over what ever space is available in the house :-)

  3. Awesome nautical the sentiment!!!
