ready for summer!

oops! i almost forgot to post this card i made for lawnscaping's latest challenge - stamp a scene!!


the cards made for this challenge by the design team and other players are so amazing!!! talk about inspiration! :)

so here's my take! just a simple, underwater scene that i made to brighten a friends' day! :)

i was feeling in a summer-y mood when i made it (maybe it's because i was in florida!)! everything is fussy cut from lawn fawn's critters in the sea stamp set. i also used the chevron backgrounds for the summer-y yellow sky! :)

i just love that the little octopus looks like he's waving! 

alright, on with your day! 
enjoy! :)

  6. I LOVE THIS CARD! I saw it on your blog and thought oh that's a new favorite (my engagement card is still my absolute favorite) and two days later SURPRISE it is in my mailbox brightening my day! Sami you are a ray of sunshine and your cards carry your light with them. Thank you for the card and for being you!

  7. I just discovered your blog and am loving it! Lawn Fawn is one of my current favs, so I'm in Heaven here browsing your cards.

    I tried to search the blog and find an answer to what feels like a silly question, but crashed and burned. Does "fussy cut" just mean cut by hand?

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pieces of art.


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
