Floating in the Lake!

Today is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 30th month of de-stashing-we are well into our 3rd year into our challenges. 

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Pansy posted our July challenge--Make a card with water as a theme!

I used one of my favorite Whipper Snapper stamps!  We spent a long weekend a few weeks ago at a friend's lake house in northern Wisconsin. We also spent some time on the water, floating with our beverages in hand!  We will send Cindy this card as a Thank You!  

I added some Wink of Stella on the water and in the beverage glass for some shimmer!

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today or in the next few days.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSJUL.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For August, Kelly is up and we already know our fun theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create!

I wish I was floating right beside her with a cool drink in my hand. Love your color choice and your DSP is perfect and complementary of each other. My stash is large only because everyone comes up with must have new merchandise before I can use up the old merchandise. I enjoy seeing all of your creations. TFS!
