WMC ~ "Summertime" Challenge #61

Happy Independence Day!!!  The 4th of July celebrations are upon us; quite literally.... firecrackers, bottle rockets, cherry bombs, fireworks and anything else that pops, bangs and booms have been going off around here for hours!  My poor little Max has been camped out on the bathroom rug seeking refuge from his least favorite time of year.

I thought I would take this opportunity to use one of my favorite stamps for the Wee Memories Summertime Challenge.


These little fellas marching in their beach parade would be more up Max's alley!!! This stamp is from 100 Proof Press...I just don't know if it gets any cuter than these tiny tots! I stamped them in black dye ink then colored with tombow markers. Accents with a glitter gel pen are here and there for some zing! All of the paper is from Lilybeedesign: Picket Fence 6x6 Tiny Tablet. The die cut with it's matching stamp & sentiment are PTI Fillable Frames Additions 1. I used my slice machine for the #4 then added some gems, a button, star brad & ribbon to finish off this happy little crew. So this is it... my "summertime" card .



Thanks so much for "popping" in  ~ Lisa
