Summer time cards

Hey there!  Hope you are having a great Monday!  I am so excited to finally be back at home but I am ever so tired.  Jet lag?   A day of rest should conquer that.  :-)  I am getting together a fabulous give away so be on the look out for details.  Coming soon---I promise!

I have two cards to share with you today from Paper Playtime's Digi Monday challenge.  The first is using a Bugaboo image.  I think this flamingo is so cute chilling on the beach with his bucket and shovel.  I kept this card really flat cause I want to mail it.  Lesson learned after mailing so many bumpy cards.   Anyhow...

I used a scrap of Creative Imaginations paper (orange and purple ledger) and a tiny strip of Paper Trey Ink (polka dot) for this CAS card.  That;s a Studio G clear stamp which I used SU's Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp and then highlighted with two Queen & Co. rhinestones. 

Challenges for this card:
Creative Card Crew: Animals Anitcs
Dutch Dare: #122 Color Challenge
Paper Sundaes: #79 Beach or Summer

The second card uses a BonieBleaux image and sentiment which you can find at Dude Time Doodles. I love this guy's attitude.  Well, I guess you could say I kinda gave him one with the sentiment.  Hee hee.  Summer days sure make me unmotivated to do anything. 

I printed him on craft card stock because I am really terrible with backgrounds.  Opps!  Did I really just admit that to all of you?  I guess so.   I feel like it does not look so naked and like the guy is floating in space.  Like my flamingo is.  Since it's a masculine image, I kept this card as guy like as I could with the grid paper, red mat as a highlight and some brown twine.  I did use light colored brads for the edges.  I seem to be getting into brads again.  I have enough so it's good to destash.  :-)

Challenges for this card:
2 Sisters: #49 Anything Goes
CES Challenges: #46 Humor/Funny
Cute Card Thursday: #174  For his eyes only
Craft Your Days Away: #25 Summer
