I am back from the beach with the kids - they enjoyed swimming in the ocean, although not huge fans of the saltwater taste when the water got in their mouth.  Hope everyone is having a great day.

We have a FUN, NEW CHALLENGE for you at WHOOPSI DAISY and the challenge is "ANYTHING BUT SQUARE," so as long as your creation is not square, it will qualify for our challenge:)  This time around, you will have 3 weeks to participate - challenge will be open until 12pm EST on Sunday, August 14 so that Linnie and the DT can enjoy a couple weeks off.

Remember, you do not have to use a WHOOPSI DAISY image for our challenge, but they're such AMAZING images and at such a FABULOUS price, why not?!?  Plus, until Friday, July 29, you can BUY ONE SHEET, GET ONE FREE at WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP, what a GREAT deal!!  Also, Linnie has an ADORABLE NEW FREEBIE just for stopping by the shop:)

For my card, I used this sweet image from Sheet #259.  I colored her with Copics and cut her out using scissors.  I chose papers from SU (cardstock), Bo Bunny, Echo Park, K and Company and Heidi Grace.  Flower and butterfly stickers from K and Co.  Bling from Recollections (Michael's) and sentiment from Dee Gruenig rubber stamps.  I used the side-step card fold, which is one of my favorites:)  I hope you will come join the challenge!!

Additional challenges entered:
GINGERLOFT - make it sparkle
PAPER CUTZ - anything goes
PATTIE'S CREATIONS - glitter or bling (both)
STAMP SOMETHING - use favorite embellies (flowers)
CHARISMA CARDZ - bright and summery colors
HAPPI SCRAPPIN' - shaped or fancy fold card
MAKE IT MONDAY - anything goes
STAMPS R US Happy Birthday
