Summer

Today seems to be a summer'y day. ;) Both of my cards make me think of summer.


First there's the ABC Challenges card...






June 24 - 30

Theme: Red, White, and Blue


I honestly couldn't quite figure out what to do with this one. I like to use Stampin' UP! stamps whenever possible for the ABC Challenges - just because Patty (the owner of ABC Challenges) is a SU demo and I like to honor her that way. But I didn't have any patriotic SU stamp sets. So instead I decided to use a new set that I just recently got - Feeling Sentimental.





I need to practice some more with the ferris wheel stamp... it looks wonky to me. But I didn't have time to perfect it (I made this card as I was rushing to get ready to go to Thailand for nearly two weeks), so it is what it is.

I guess you figured out that I created my own DP with the Celebrate stamp.







Here's the inside of my card:




My second card truly is a Summer'y card...






June 24 - July 7

Theme: Summer Fun



Here's my card:




Isn't she darling?
She's a MelonHeadz image!!!


And it just amazed me that I actually found a ribbon in my stash that had summer fun on it. WOW! What's the odds of that???







Here's the inside of my card:




Yes, that's another image from the MelonHeadz Water Fun Bundle.

The summer time one is wonderful too - what a serendipitous find with the ribbon.

I like your non-patriotic red, white and blue card. Grea idea. The little girl is too cute on the other card. Te popsicle patterned paper is perfect.

Your first card reminds me of Cedar Point - I haven't been there in years and years. And the second card is so sweet..love the popcicle/ice cream paper. :)
