Guest Designing for DL.Art

I'm so thrilled to be joining DL.Art for their Thankful Thursday Challenge.  Both Diana, herself and DT member Katie, live in the area and I've had the pleasure to meet them in person at the Scrapbook Expo several times.  The theme for this challenge is "Summertime" (or you can substitute a thank you card), and we're showcasing the new Tropical Summer Bundle available at DL.Art Supplies.

Just take a look at those yummy colors!  They really scream SUMMER to me so I looked for complimentary DP and found this from an old DCWV Stack that seems to be missing it's cover.  The patterned stripes gave me an idea to make a spinner card and I had just the image.  Meet Cartwheel Carrie by Sandra Caldwell.  I actually suggested this image to Sandra because I couldn't for the life of me ever do a decent cartwheel.  But wait 'til you see her go!  She's colored with Copics in the colors to match the gorgeous Tropical Summer Bundle.

Okay, so I'm not the greatest at photographer, but it's hard to hold the camera and make the thing spin at the same time. Plus, it only took me ALL day to figure out where the heck it went on my computer when I uploaded it and publish it on Youtube so you could see it here, so cut me some slack.  LOL Gotta say I'm pretty thrilled that I managed it all by myself, since computer stuff is definitely NOT my forte.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous makes by the DL.Art team.  Thanks so much for letting me join you for this challenge.  Also check out the rest of the fabulous ribbon assortments at DL.Art Supplies.  You'll be glad you did.

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Use Patterned Paper Challenge, Crafty Ribbons Summer, Crafting by Designs 3 Patterned Papers, Whoopsie Daisy June Bring on Summer, Inky Impressions June Summertime, Di's Digi Designs Summer and Creative Moments ATG/Summer.
