You Float My Boat:)

The current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Summer!  Here in the Finger Lakes in upstate NY thoughts of summer definitely conjure up images of time spent on or near the water:



Pardon the pun, but I used boatloads of product on this scene:)  The boat, seagulls, sentiment and heart images are from a sweet little Lawn Fawn set called "Float My Boat".  Cloud die is Papertrey ink while the sun die is Impression Obsession.  The waves were die cut from Stampin' Up island indigo cs using a wave die from The Stamps of Life Sandal die set.  I can't overstate how much I love my new Mama Elephant stitched and scalloped rectangle dies that are part of the Index Cards - Creative Cuts die set!  I was able to score them on a recent trip to my favie independent stamping store in Buffalo, NY called Buffalo Stamps And Stuff :)  
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs, Stampin' Up pool party, soft suede and so saffron cs and island indigo pp, Cuttlebug Hugs & Kisses embossing folder, My Favorite Things banner die

Love when a card turns out just like I envisioned it:)  Got an idea for another summer-related scene - gonna try to get it done today before the challenge closes!  I hope everyone's enjoying these last days of summer - here's a pic of a favorite way my hubby and I like to enjoy a warm summer sunset:
