Flying by to say Hi

Hello friends! Happy Hump Day to you. Only 2 more sleeps until Friday!!! :) I can't believe the month of July is almost over. Before I know it, the kids (and I) will be back in school! I'm so very excited. :)

Anyway, I just wanted to post a quick CAS card I put together for the latest CAS challenge on Splitcoast to use tags.

I used Taylored Expressions new fun set In the Clouds, and dummy me, totally forgot to use the coordinating Blimps and Banners die to go with it! My non-die cut banner would have been sooo much cuter with it! Oh well, you won't make the same mistake I did. ;) And before I forget...I TOTALLY Case'd this card from the fabulous Laurie Schmidlin...I was inspired by this card here. I started with Choice Snow White cardstock and cut a wavy pattern from a patterned paper from the Dots and Stripes - Metropolitan collection from Echo Park. I stamped my blimp and coordinating pieces with Memento Tuxedo Black and then, not-so carefully, colored them in with Copics. :) For some fun, I also added Stardust absolutely FAVORITE glitter medium to the darker shadows.

Alrighty, back to the daily summer grind here. It has pretty much entailed swimming pools every single day because it's so dang hot here! I guess the plus is that we all have a nice tan, LOL!

Have a great rest of the week and thank you so much for stopping by!
