Muse 74 - Enjoy!

Click to link up to Darnell's Birthday party by July 16. 


Here's my take on this week's Muse challenge, where our Guest Designer is Jennifer Wills and this card:




I love the beachy feel of Jen's card! I decided to go a little abstract and use stripes to represent the beach, ocean and sky, and a popped-up yellow circle for the sun. I stamped the Papertrey sentiment in Smoky Slate.

Kate and I are getting ready to visit Struan at his gliding school tomorrow and then bright and early Sunday morning, we're heading up to our church Music camp for about a week. Kate's going as a student and I'm going (for the first time since I was a student about 30 years ago!), as a member of faculty. I'll be playing the piano for the vocal program. Anyway, if it seems quiet here (or if you don't see me commenting), you'll know that there's no wifi at camp.

The deadline for this Muse challenge is Monday morning at 8 am EDT. You can then vote for your top 3 favourites until Tuesday morning at 8 am. If (and that's a big IF) there's wifi up at camp, I will post the winners as soon as I can, but my back up plan is to post them when I get back, on Sunday July 13.

I'm going to squeak this into Addicted to CAS's Sun challenge.

Have a wonderful time at camp! My oldest is going to show choir camp on Sunday. I'm looking forward to going back up next Saturday to see their performances. Love your graphic take on Jen's card.

Hi Ardyth!!! Awesome use of the stripes for your beach-feel card! So very you, and so very fabulous. Have a wonderful time at camp next week! How fun to go back there with Kate ... I wonder if you have any photos of yourself at camp? Wouldn't that be a riot to get the same pose, same location, only with Kate? Then you could take a photo of just you and have a before and after series. Fun, fun. Anyway, have a great time!

I love this abstract card Ardyth! I love the beachy stripes and the yellow "sun" pop of color. Beautifully done!! I hope you enjoy your visit with your son and I hope you enjoy being at camp as a faculty member! Hugs, Brenda

Simply stunning and in pure Ardyth style too.

A sweet modern beach scene (love your version)!

How exciting - a wee getaway at camp where you can (discretely) keep an eye on Kate!

Do the faculty members have to sleep on bunk beds too?

Have fun! You deserve a break!
