Virtual Stamp Night: Summer Vacation!

Hello!!  It's Virtual Stamp Night (Weekend!!)

Tonight and Tomorrow night, splitcoaststampers will be giving us a bunch of fun challenges...and I am hosting one again!  My challenge will be tomorrow night.

The theme is Summer vacation.  Fortunately, I had time to get a head start, since I am a hostess.  That means I can comment on cards that YOU post this weekend!

My first card for VSN is also being submitted for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I realized too late that my stripes go down to far.  Oops.  Funny how making a quick card for VSN will affect the brain!  LOL   

Along with the FMS challenge, this is for the VSN challenge Hot & STICKY for all of that summer humidity!  I rarely use stickers, but I had am old scrapbook kit from Sale-a-Bration (years ago!)...and these strips and dots were perfect.  Plus I had a smidgen of this fabulous coordinating DSP left over.  My card base is pacific point; I embossed the whisper white with petals-a-plenty embossing folder.  I don't have a tag-topper I just snipped the corners and punch a hole for my daffodil grosgrain ribbon.  The sentiment is from SU's On Your Birthday, in rose red (could not find my melon mambo marker...should have grabbed the ink pad, duh!) and punched out with a decorative label punch. 

Since this card is for 2 challenges, I am going to put other cards in later posts.  Blogger is slow tonight...must be a lot of stampers online!  LOL  

I hope you get a chance to play along with VSN.  Check back tomorrow for more cards, including my COLOR challenge!  (Yes, I just gave you a hit!)
