Summer Fun Blog Hop with Create with TLC

Welcome to Summer Fun Create with TLC Blog Hop with a different Create with TLC freebie image with every step along the way!!! It's summer fun time - what are your plans for the summer????? Summer Fun could be spent in the water swimming or even on a boat fishing! As for myself, my boyfriend has a cabin in Pymatuning, PA where we take the boat and go fishing on the lake or Sunday becomes a Road Trip.

If you have arrived from Lisa Lynn, then you are in the right place - if not, here is the complete list of my Create with TLC teamies and friends: 
Lisa Lynn (previous summer fun stop)
Lynne (current summer fun stop)
Rhonda Sue (your next summer fun stop)
Create with TLC

The image that is available for you on my blog is Vintage Summer Fun Antics on the Beach. Just right click on the image and save the file for your own personal used

For my card, I had a lot of fun not only chalking, using border punches, but also doing some fussy cutting:

  • size A2 card
  • image was pre-colored but adding chalk to the sky and Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush
  • waves were made using Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch and chalking the edges
  • Seashell sticker

  • sentiments are from Create with TLC die cut using Darice Embossing Folder and chalked around the edges  

Your next stop on our hop is Rhonda Sue

Now, you know that I can't let a reference to a song go unnoticed without having a sing-a-long - I love this song and often sing it while sitting in the boat and fishing!!!! 

Thank you for stopping and visiting today and hope you come back again!!!

I thank you for stopping by and visiting today.  I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read??? 

Much love, hugs, and friendship
