Simply Sunday - Summertime

Welcome to a new Getting Cricky "Simply Sunday" challenge and I hope you all are having a very blessed day today.

This month's challenge is to create a project with a "Summertime" theme. It can be a card, layout, 3D, altered project or anything else you can think of just as long as it is about summertime.

This past weekend we went to my nephews graduation and I was able to visit a Michael's store. Oh that is a super duper fun place to be. While there, I was able to get the Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge. I have been wanting this cartridge since it was released but we don't get any of the new carts in my area so this was a gold mine. lol

For today's project I used that sweet new cartridge and his adorable little face is from the PKS Simple Simon assortment. If you live near the beach (wish I did) summertime would be all about surfing. I spent the summer after graduation in California and never wanted to leave the beach. We did a lot of body surfing but I never had the nerve to actually get up on my feet.
The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs new release

I do the same happy dance! Love your card and love that cartridge. I did a Peachy Keen Challenge using that cartridge a couple of weeks ago. I had never seen these K Andrew stamps before. I just checked out her website and will be making a purchase. Thanks for sharing.

This dude is the coolest ever! Haa! He really is fabulous. Makes me want to hit the beach. In 14 years of living in California and numerous trips back I have never been surfing either. Great card!
