Summer Fun Happening

Hi There Everyone,

Is everyone having a nice weekend? I hope so. So far so good here. Went and purchased some nice fresh produce at our local farmers market this morning. It is always nice to have some fresh fruit and veggies in the house.

The official start of summer happened on Tuesday although it has felt like August here for about a month now. Don't anyone hate me but I am ready for fall. LOL

Ok on to my card.

This super cute image is from The Paper Shelter. They are becoming one of my favorite digi stamp companies. This little girl is called Sunny Day. I love the little drink with the umbrella in it.



I have colored her with my Copic markers. I added a little glitter with my atyou Spica pen. I used a cloud template to give some soft clouds behind her.


The "Enjoy" stamp is a Studio G stamp and the "Summer" is from Targets $1 bin. So I combined them together on the card to say Enjoy Summer. OK maybe I am stretching it a bit. LOL But you get what I was going for.


The Designer Papers are from the Citronella collection by K and Company. This is really a fun collection to use for the summer/beach/vacation type of card.

It seems everyone has the same idea about a fun summer card this week for the challenges so I have a number of them I am entering this card for.

Please stop the sites and their sponsors when you have a minute. There are so many wonderful card and vendors out their.
