a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

Thursday, August 15, 2013


The summers not over just yet (well our kids are back in school) but the weather is still quite hot and humid.  We're hoping to get another trip or two out onto the lake before it starts cooling off and in between all the football and cheerleading going on.

I created this card a bit ago but hadn't posted it yet, the surfboards remind me of summer...and shark week :-)

The August Diva Dare at Verve Stamps is "Pile on the Sweetness"-or use lots of layers.  My layers are stacked on this card with not only the card base but the images as well.

The Simon Wednesday Challenge is monochromatic colors-there are some fabulous creations over at their site.  I'm using tones of blues for my card.

The Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is the photo below.  I adore any color of blue, but I have a soft spot for navy blue-so much so that my bridesmaids dresses were that color.   The dresser and the photo display really are so beautiful in this picture, but really the color and the stripes were what inspired me in this photo.

You have until August 18th to join in on the Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World so jump on over there and check out the details to join.

shark week? LOL but i see your point... more LOL.

it's fabulous! i love the monochromatic look too.

school here starts next week and the temps have cooled down. it was a great summer... weather-wise. very few hot and humid days. enough to be annoying and feel like summer.

happy thursday!
