Crafters of Faith June Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!!. My blog is slowing down... I thought end of the school year would give me more time to craft... WRONG!!!. I'm busier than ever. I'm even late for my Crafters of Faith June Challenge. This month our hostess was Liz and she challenge us like this:
"Fun in the Sun " card or scrapbook page I would like to see a Sun, some summer toys, ( bike, beach ball, roller blades ect, these can be anywhere on the card your image doesn't have to be doing it )at least one thing on pop dots and something Blue 

Well when I think of sun, beach, summer, my mind always remember the beach back home in Argentina. I posted a card not so long ago about it, and everything that I lived over there was thanks to my mom. She was the one that always made our summers the best. You might ask why the Mariuskas then... and what do they have to do with a beach...well is a long story... Mariuskas are really special to both of us. When I was born, my father brought the most beautiful one to my mother from Russia and she saved it for me. I've never seen one prettier than that one. I have it on my shelf and always remember my dad when I see her. Now my husband is in Russia and he will do the same as my father did. He is bringing one as well, so when I saw this digital image I had to have it and the theme this month was perfect to use it. My mom is here visiting since March and she is leaving in August. I'll give her this card with a gift for her to remember our summers and my father's love. I hope you like my card:

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Old Olive, Really Rust and Barely Banana from SU
Designer Paper: Lime Twist Fly a Kite from My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Sun from Hambo Stamps, Olga and Sasha from Squigglefly.com, the sentiment is from Fabulous Frosty from MFT
Accessories: Clouds die, Grass die, Banner die and flower dies from MFT, Paper piercing tool kit from SU and Copic Markers.

Thanks for looking!!!
