Dies R Us Challenge July 1, 2022 (Anything Goes!)

Hi, Friends!

For the challenge this month the theme is Anything Goes!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  

Today I am sharing a card I made for my sister's birthday.  I love the sentiment along with the cute parrots!  She doesn't have any plans for a tropical vacation, but one can always dream!

For my mini slimline card, I started with a white card base.  I ink blended the background with distress inks and added waves using dies from IO.  The palm trees, parrots, sentiments, and crab are from Lawn Fawn.  

The links for the dies are listed below...

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)
