Splashin' into DAY TWO of TGF Previews!...

Alrighty...

Who's READY for some SUMMER FUN?!?  

I am!  I am!  We heard ya over at The Greeting Farm, too, because Oliver and Amelia are already on the task at hand to bring YOU some SUMMER FUN!   

Introducing....Oliver/Amelia SUMMER FUN!

I LOVE this set because it totally reminds me of my kids and our favorite time of year...which is RIGHT. NOW.  <3  My children absolutely LOVE to be in the water- so when I saw this set I literally squealed!  Totally perfect for the Diedrich clan.

With that in mind, I created a fun little card based on yesterday's Mystery Monday CASE of my sweet friend Kris! Today's challenge is ALSO the Ribbon Carousel challenge to use Red, White and Blue on your card.  Two challenges in one PLUS a preview?  Whew!  I'm on a roll, guys....look out, LOL!
 
Here is sweet Oliver, totally looking like my Nicky boy or Jack man getting ready to MAKE A SPLASH:

I used twine from the TWINERY in Maraschino for my card and also experimented with Helmar Premium Craft Glue and LOVE the effects of his snorkeling mask.  I was out of Glossy Accents....but WHO needs it?!  Helmar Premium Craft Glue TOTALLY did the trick!

SUMMER FUN will be released this FRIDAY, JULY 1st, during our "BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT BLOG HOP/RELEASE PARTY, beginning at 12:01 am, CST...but you can WIN this adorable set today by 'swimmin'  over to theTGF Blog to read how!

We sure do hope you'll splash on over to party with us this Friday, but for now, I'll be back on Thursday with ONE more preview- can you BELIEVE how HOT, HOT, HOT these releases are for the month of July?!?

In the meantime, you'll definitely want to stop back over at the TGF BLOG tomorrow for a special treat from July Guest Designer Jen Shults!  We have a FULL week of fun planned and you won't want to miss a day!   See you then...and don't forget to visit the BRAND NEW TGF Farmers today...links are on my sidebar!
