Summer Fun...PDCC33 51

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, June 9, 2010 @ 9:10 PM | , , ,

Hi There! Time sure flies when I'm busy papercrafting - how about you? Thursday already & time for a new challenge at The Play Date Cafe. This week along with The Play Date Cafe DT, Courtney Baker, Owner/Designer of Practicing Creativity Designs will be sponsoring & playing along with this challenge! There is an awesome prize to be had so be sure to visit The Play Date Cafe for complete details :)
This week I had the pleasure of selecting the color combo so I chose this pretty bedding set for inspiration because I had summer fun on my mind & Scott, my DH did the techy stuff & created the graphic ;)

Last week, I was California dreamin' :) That was the reason for the hand stitchin' you may have noticed on a few cards ;) While I was at my home away from home in San Diego, I had to visit my favorite store, Paper Tales :) So much goodness packed into one lil' gorgeous store with customer service that is out of this world! That is where I found the cute jenni bowlin BEACH BINGO card. We didn't hang out on the beach but had a great time sailing in the San Diego Bay & visiting The San Diego Zoo.

From a close up view, you can get a better look at my beach blanket background :)

I have been admiring all the projects out there in Blogosphere, so I thought I would pull out some neglected fabric & put it to good use. All you need is a piece of fabric about 1/2" W & L than you would like the final size to be. Randomly stamp the images.

Then, carefully pull threads from edge, creating a fringed border. Reminds me of when I would turn my favorite jeans into cut offs :) Retro!Here's a better look :)

If you haven't already - give it a try & create your custom stamped fabric! Thanks for looking :)

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC33 so we won't miss them!

Be Sweet!
