Everything is coming up Summer!

Seems like we loose a bit of summer each year.  As i write this it's super warm and muggy outside..and the grandkids are back to school..seems like we should all be hanging out at the lake for the month of August..i vote to keep summer vacation like it was when i was a kid..June, July and August off and go back after Labor Day.

Anyway, this card depicts what i feel like doing..just sitting and enjoying the flowers..and on nice summer day (this stamp is called "Sitting Wonderful":
I've used some of my favorite dies:
Oh Joy Rectangle Frame 6002/0147, Cheery Lynn lace border DL134 and Martha Stewart leaf punch.


Don't forget to ask to see if we still have the above dies in stock at Dutch Paper Crafts!

The flowers were hand made by Sigi's Creations and you can order beautiful flowers from her anytime and at the same time help a rescued wildlife animal. 

Copics used:
skin- YR000, 00, R20, 22
hair- Y11, 15, 19
bow/outfit- R20, 22, YG03. 67

I am right there with you...voting the kids don't go back to school till after Labor Day. I have yet to understand why they are going back so early. Any hoo...Great card.

I vote for kids going back to school after Labor Day too. I was not ready to see my 4 yr old granddaughter start pre-school on her BDay yesterday. I was hoping I had one more year of babysitting duties where her and I would spend time with our new found craft hobby of card making as well as balancing it out with other fun learning activities too. Ok, sorry for being so chatty....back to what I really meant to say ...... You totally rocked the Tuesday's challenge this past week!!! It is an awesome card! Great job!
