It's A Summery Sparkly Sentimental Kinda Hop

Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there I pray you have a wonderful day!
Are You Ready?
Tuesday, June 21st, is the official first day of summer in the northern hemisphere and we are ready for all the summer fun to begin. For our friends down under who are moving into their winter months and may not feel like creating a summery project, they may be making “Sparkly or Shimmery” projects. What girl doesn’t like her bling?
You should have arrived here from AMY'S Blog,. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.

For my card I had to use this new stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy. I grew up near the beach and let me tell ya I MISS it!  I took for granted that on a whim I could just jump in my car and head to the beach because it was only 45 mins away.  To give it some sparkly I added a touch of shimmer to the water.

We hope you will join in our “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. Our sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection
Your next stop on the hop is Tracey. Please make it big, bold, easy to see.) If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th. So, hop on over to the next stop and good luck!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
