Daydream Believer?

Pin It

Welcome to the DeNami Designs "Summer" Blog Hop!  I'm sure you've been enjoying "Hot" card after "Seriously Hot" card along this hop!  :)  I mean, is all this inspiration getting you all fired up, or what???

With that in mind, thought you'd enjoy chillin' here for a minute or two...  I think I've got something pretty cool to share!  ha!  :)

If you are hopping in order, you should be arriving from Greta Hess's fun blog -- bet she had a real sizzling something to share!  Don't forget you have until 11:59 PM PST on July 9th to leave comments all along the hop for your chance to win one of two mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Designs website!

Ok, so the theme this month is "Summer," and when I think of summer, I think of lots of sunshine and like to daydream about sippin' Mai Tais on a tropical beach somewhere...  (I'll keep the part about being fed frozen treats by a sun-bathed beach god to myself...  :)  Thankfully, I had just the set of stamps I needed to create my ode to summer!

  
I used this set to stamp these adorable "adult bevvies" which I colored with Copics and then coated with Glossy Accents.  I used this circle scallop stamp to create my "placemats" which I then paper-pieced.  And, finally, I combined the "cheers" stamp with this one (selectively masked, of course!) to create my own sentiment...  Lots of fun!  :)

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving comments -- I appreciate every one of them!  :)  I hope you are enjoying the blog hop.  You're off now to Deanna Jean's super-creative blog (I'll be right behind you -- can't wait to see what she's come up with!!  :)   If you get lost along the way, or would just like to start over from the beginning, just head on over to the DeNami Designs website!

Happy hopping!  :)

...... ummmm, excuse me, Beach god, my Mai Tai appears to be empty.....  ;-)
