A View of the Future



Did I tell you I have become a Cheryl Alger groupie? You probably already figured it out, but I wanted to go ahead and admit it. My card today is for two challenges: Squigglefly - Summertime is Here AND Sassy Cheryl - Step Cards. I used Charlie's Relaxing Swim by Cheryl Alger which is available at Squigglefly and from Sassy Cheryl Digis.

Step cards and I don't get along really well. I made one a couple of years ago and it was painful for me for some reason (you can see it here - but this one was even more painful. I tried three times to make a fancy step card and ended up just going with a simple one instead. I think if I actually measured next time it would work better - LOL!

I had so much fun with this card - I used some fun stickers from K and Co and a SU! Edge Die.

Oh, I almost forgot...were you wondering about my title for this post? My youngest daughter Allie is going to start at UAB in the Fall (University of Alabama - Birmingham) and they have a lazy river the circles the fitness center. She swears she is going to get in that lazy river and study. When I saw this image, that was the first thing I thought off - LOL!

Hugz to all and hope this is a wonderful week!

  2. Fabulous step card! Love everything about it (except I don't like to measure either). Congrats on your daughter going to UAB. At least it's nearby. :-)

    Glad your daughter isn't going far, far away to school. You would miss her terribly.

  4. This is fabulous Nancy! I think the simple step design is perfect because it looks like she's going down one of those big water slides at a park! I just love all the elements you added too - wonderful waves and the perfect SPLASH sentiment!

  11. Your card is really cute, and I think you did a great job with the card fold. I had trouble too trying to make step cards, but I do enjoy making a "center" step card!
