More Summer Fun

Hello. I hope you are doing well. I really appreciate your kind comments.

Unfortunately it is difficult for me to comment on all the other lovely blogs and groups out there right now. I won't bore you with the details, but please know that I am thinking of all my crafty pals in the blogosphere and sending you all lots of hugs. Hope you understand.

We have had a lot of storms here recently. Last night a little shopping center near our house was destroyed, and they think lightning was the culprit. The pictures looked bad on the news this morning, but it was even worse when I drove past it on my way to and from work. Very sad.

So here is another colorful card for the current Hero Arts Blog Challenge. I used a page from a vintage sewing book, colored the stamp with markers, spritzed it with water, and stamped.

Stamp(s): Hero Arts (CG170 Wildflower Garden, CL380 Truly Appreciated)
Ink(s): Hero Arts (Black); Marvy Uchida (Assorted Markers)
Paper(s): Hero Arts (Folded Note Cards); The Paper Company (Kraft); Vintage Text
Other: Hero Arts (Mixed Accents); Michael's Coats & Clark (Thread); Sizzix (Card, Scallop #2)

This little summer tote bag was fun to make. I just love the Hero Arts DigiKit - HA Sea Life - Otters. Aren't they cute and cuddly?

I really like how the stitching and buttons came out, too. Here is a close-up:

Stamp(s): Hero Arts (DigiKit - HA Sea Life - Otters)
Ink(s): Tsukineko (StazOn Jet Black)
Paper(s): Avery (Printable Fabric)
Other: Hero Arts (CH148 Card Buttons Spring) Michael's (Mini Canvas Bag); Coats & Clark (Thread)

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!

Hi Joy...I'm hoping everything works out for you soon. Please know I care and I'm keeping you in prayer. You certainly have the themes of summer and cheerful covered with these projects. Your card is so excellent, what a perfect design! And I just love the sweet little bag with the otters. How inspiring!
bless you,

Hope you are doing okay, my friend. I'm thinking of you. I love your mini tote. And that bright, floral card with the text-- INCREDIBLE! HUGS!

Oh I love these Joy! The layout is so cute and I LOVE this card with all of the gorgeous colours! Your tote is fantastic - I especially love the stitching!

Hi, Joy! Sorry to hear about the lightning strike! They are always so sudden and tragic! I remember we lived in Nora Pines apartments behind the post office and Target store in Nora Plaza when a tornado went through once ... straight down 86th Street, and mangled signs, moved cars, and more. Storms are so unpredictable and can really have such an impact!

I really like the card you made! It is so pretty! I just got the Wildflower Garden cling set and I am just loving it!

Sorry you can't play as often as you'd like lately. Whatever it is, I hope it works out for the best, and soon, so you can play again! Thinking positive happy thoughts for you! :-)

Hi Joy, I love this card and the tote bag. Love the colorful flowers on the card--very pretty. The tote bag is cute and the otters are adorable. Sorry to hear about the storm that destroyed the shopping center. I live in Alabama and there are lots of tornados around here and can be very scarry when they happen. I will pray for you. You take care and God Bless.
