I love the sentiment from Keiser Kraft Life Sentiments Acrylic stamp set.

In Mediterranean Sea

Hello my dear friends. I am back from my summer holidays. We spoilt ourselves in the largest island of Greece Crete.
The weather was fantastic - melting hot everyday :0) Our small hotel beach had the most crystal clean water I've ever seen. Because we both like adventure we hired a quad bike and visited some beautiful romantic towns and villages. Tasted traditional Greek cosine. Mmm, I miss our afternoon frappes in Agios Nicolaos.  
Than we decided to go farther and went to cruise to the Spinalonga Island. An important Venetian fortress which become a leper colony in 1903. Place with such an atmosphere! 
We although visited the most important and magnificent Minoan palace of Knossos. 
Oh,I am sad that our holiday finished but happy to be back so I can start on my craft projects. 
My card I want to share with you today is about summer.

Here is my favourite picture from our holiday :

The panorama of Agios Nicolaos

Hope that you all have beautiful afternoon.

No Scissors Please

Hello. I was baking today! So while it's my cheese cake sitting on the kitchen top and cooling down I can spent some time with you blogging :0) I have some nice summer card for you today. 
Miri from Daring Cardmakers set up really lovely dare for us this week.
She asked us to follow one simple rule :
No Scissors Please !
Decorate a card blank without using scissors or a paper cutter/guillotine. However, you may use your die cutting machine to add labels/shapes etc.

Here is my card :

Instead of cutting I was tearing! 

First I stamped stripes on the craft cardstock with brown ink, then I tore off main panel and stamped sentiment on the top, took two light blue wide stripes and tore to sea waves.

Turned on my sewing machine and stitched around with black thread. Die cut sailing boat from 3 different cardstocks - embossed white, light blue and red.  Finished with grey bow embellished with twine and little button.

Have a lovely time full of sunshine!

Used Material :

Kraft, light blue, red cardstock

Wish Upon A Star
Create a project with star or stars on. They are so many possibilities like sport stars, fairy-tail stars, astronomical stars, music rock stars ... 

Here is my card :

I created very simple card with stars detail.

First I print out sentiment on the kraft cardstock. Then I cut out panel from flowery pattern paper, matted with white cardstock for the card background.

Die cut stars using Provo Craft Cuttlebug Outer Space dies, inked with dark brown ink and adhered on the panel. Took dark brown thread and stitched around the edges. Fix a strip of net on the bottom part of panel and attached on the card front. Finished with glitter glue and left to dry!
