Bye Bye Summer

No, I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer, but that was the Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS yesterday, Bye Bye Summer. . .to make a gel card. I haven't made a gel card in ages, so it was fun to try one out again. This card was really quick too, which was nice. I seem to have less and less time to stamp lately and I don't know why. Maybe because I need to get some other projects done too, so I'm trying to fit everything into the time I DO have. Savannah's 4th birthday is Sunday, but they're celebrating it in preschool on Thursday. I wanted to make some "favors" to send in with her and I haven't even started. Today is the day I hope to do that. Thanks for stopping by today and have a GREAT day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Whale Wishes, Spotted Jumbo wheel; Paper- Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White; Ink- Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi; Accessories- black marker, Night of Navy marker, Making Memories brads, Word Window punch, double stitched ribbon in Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou, Oval Coluzzle, paper piercer.

Charmaine - what a cute card. Good luck getting all your stuff done. Somedays I wish there were just a couple of extra hours! :) Julie

Wow, I've never heard of a gel card and yours looks great.
You guys sound like you have at least had a summer in the USA, but here in the UK, it has been a very poor summer. In the 8 years I have been living here, this is the worst summer. I know Charmaine, you don't want to say 'goodbye' but I would really like to say 'hello' to summer - I might get that in Australia for our holiday on Monday!!
Take care, K.

Absolutely adorable. I want to try a gel card but I haven't had a chance yet (plus we are out of hair gel so I need to do a little shopping) :)
