Happy Sunday!  The Paper Players have another challenge for us this week.  It’s a Theme Challenge hosted by our very talented Ann.  She chose Signs of Summer.

There’s so much I think of when Summer is near.  Ann’s challenge banner pretty much covers the fun and adventure Summer brings.

I don’t  live far from our beautiful New Jersey beaches. At any given time from May through October, my beach chair is in my car. Mostly on a whim, I’ll get in the car, head to the beach, take a walk or sit for a while then head home.  A walk near the salt water is refreshing to me.

Today’s card is an image of the sailboats I see and the sea gulls flying in the background.  It’s a true sign Summer is with us.

I kept this card simple.  The Sailing Home stamp set helped me create my sailing scene. I used a blender pen and ink to add color to the sailboat.  The matching die from the Smooth Sailing Dies made it easy to cut the sailboat image and attach it with Dimensionals.  I sponged a little So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo ink in the background to create a light horizon.  The seagulls are stamped with Misty Moonlight ink.

The sentiment is perfect for graduates, especially during this time of year.   The sailboat and sentiment are all about the adventure that awaits us all!

So, pull out your favorite summer themed image, add a beach chair, sailboat or popsicle and join us over at the Paper Players.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
