Dies R Us Challenge August 15, 2020! (Baby it's Hot Outside(hot colors-reds, oranges, yellows)

It's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  And, the theme is (Baby it's Hot Outside)-hot colors-reds, oranges, and yellows!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project.  Come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating!  It's so fun to make a tropical card and dream all the problems of the world away.  All I am wishing and praying for is people to love one another and be kind to one another.  

I have lots of Lawn Fawn goodies on my card along with a couple other dies.  I started with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle die and made a sunset background using DI of candied apple, spiced marmalade, and mustard yellow.  The pineapple and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn, also.  The tall leaves are from Sue Wilson and the tropical leaves are from Cherry Lynn.  I made the water and sand.  Twine and dots to finish the tropical card.  Where would you like to be if there wasn't a pandemic going on?  I think I would love to be in Hawaii....aloha!

All dies and inks that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)
