Freinds of SpeedyTV Challenge 28 - Summer Vacation

Good Morning and Happy Monday,

Welcome to another challenge with Friends of SpeedyTV.  With Summer Vacations here upon us it is our challenge to you to make a Summer Vacation Themed card. This weeks free stamp set is a great one for those vacation cards:

Flaminos on Vacation

For my card I used this stamp set but I also used "Silly Shells", I colored my card with Copic Markers and eyeshadow. Yes you heard me eyeshadow. I got this great tip from Thrifty Stamper. Did you know that if you can not afford the typical expensive craft chalk that eye shadow works just as good but a fraction of the cost. Check it out. Anyway I finished off my card with some Glimmer Spritz to give it a shimmery feel to it. I hope you enjoyed my card. thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you again soon. 

Be sure to stop by SpeedyTV and join the fun. It is FREE to join.

Now it is your turn to show us your vacation cards that you created for us.  You can use any stamp set that you would like, but if you use a Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamp set your name will be entered twice. Can't wait to see all the fabulous creations.

We have some new challenges started on Tuesday and Wednesday this week which will give you more opportunities to win free stamp sets from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. Be sure to stop by on Tuesday for the new fun. Tell you friends.

You have until 11:00 pm on Sunday July 15th to submit your cards. Good Luck everyone. Have a blessed day.

Who would have ever thought of eyeshadow? But, I see it has helped make a very pretty card. I love the Silly Shells set and you made a super card.

Fabulous tip about using eye shadow!!! Gorgeous card! I like the dimension you added with the squares. Are those foam pads colored with ink? Gorgeous!!!

Great card! That sentiment totally works here. Eyeshadow, huh? I think it's probably better used here than on my face ;)
