Wishing for summer....

I miss summer. It's mid July and I barely have any tan line. In fact today I saw people out wearing sweaters. It's ridiculous! I'm so sick of the unusually cold weather!
This week I decided to try and cheer myself up by making a beachy card. There may not be warm weather and sunshine, but I have the bestest girlfriends and that more than makes up for it!!  ;o)

It's a easel card, which I discovered is very hard to photograph LOL! I used the fabulous Ai stamp Girlfriends. Sentiment is also Ai, and ain't it the truth!!!

Thanks for looking.

It's July and time for a new Sketch Challenge over at Graphicat Sketches ! Sorry I'm a little late, but I've been down and out with a sinus and throat infection. I'm on the mend and today finally took a pic of my card to post it. First, here's the cool sketch...

And now, I know the rest of the design team used Cheri's latest release of Tea images and sentiments, but I decided to use one of her first images...Boomer! Named after my sweet baby. The sentiment is also one of Cheri's. Please check out her site, Graphicat Designs, she has some very cute and sassy sentiments.

I used My Mind's Eye Lime Twist papers. I love the colour combo of orange, purple and green, even if it doesn't look as cool in the photo. And the image was fun and easy to colour. I look forward to using it again. Now please, go check out Graphicat Sketches and please join the challenge!
