4 a.m card making.

Hello beautiful crafters, I have had yet another late night crafting, I made 22 inchies for 2 different people. 11 per person, 18 of them was the same for both people. 4 was different because they was profile based. Yea I know you want to see but I was in to much of a hurry to mail them and I sealed them before snapping a picture.

But I did however snap a picture of my "summer fun" card I am going to enter into 5, yes 5 different contests.

Here are the details and the contest links:

http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com  - provided a 4th of july cupcake themed photo to use as inspiration
http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/2011/06/challenge-11-june-24th-my-favourite.html  - anything goes using some of my favorite things (Boats, die cuts, cut outs, BLUE)
http://rainbowladyschallengeblog.blogspot.com    - anything goes - "digi days" sandals is a digi stamp.
http://craftyhoschallenge.blogspot.com   - had to use a photo she provided of a sail boat as inspiration

Here is my card "Summer Fun" I will be entering.

I covered a blank card with 2 tone striped blue paper. I dug thru a big bag of die cuts I just received and found the boat. I inked the bottom with brown and the sail with a light blue. Went around the edges with the same blue. I then went to a different baggie full of doll parts. I used a body with brown hair and blue overalls. I glued him altogether and then into place. I found the flip flops on my pc. Not sure where I got them from but the original file was white. I opened it inside paint and made the flip flop red and the top part blue. I then "stitched" around them with a fine tip sharpie pen. Took my handy dandy label maker and typed out "SUMMER FUN" bold and italic. I added a jagged border like a board. I put my title on the top and called it done. I really like it.
What do you think of my late night card? Are you ready for the summer? I know I am.

Why not go check out the links i mentioned above. I promise you wont regret it.
