North Shore Summer

Happy Saturday, friends, and I hope you can play along with us this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  Check out the sketch this week inspired by a card from Anya.  I can't wait to see what you create with this beauty - 
For whatever reason, that sketch was pure summer to me and I knew I wanted to use my new North Shore set.  I inked up the big image using green and blue inks, stamped it and then cut it out using a circle die.  I layered the white circle on to some indigo cardstock for some pop.  I stamped a blue-green card base with the circle pattern from Free Spirit Boy in white ink.  I finished the card with some hibiscus from Free Spirit that I colored with some Copic markers.

We're winding down our time in our city apartment and getting ready to move into our new home and we're beside ourselves with excitement.  The paint is finished and the carpet will be installed next week.  We're doing a deep clean on the tile and are hoping everything is ready for the big day in a couple of weeks.  I will have new projects for you throughout the month but will be taking a little break toward the end when I have to pack up and then find my craft supplies after the move.  I'm still trying to figure out what to bring in my "Open First" box of supplies.  Tough call!  :)

Thanks for visiting today!

Supplies:  Stamps (WMS), Cardstock - Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Whisper White (SU!), Ink - Island Indigo, Pool Party, Craft White (SU!), Copic Markers, Dies (Spellbinders)
