The Lazy Days of Summer

It seems like we just got started with summer, but as we draw closer to the end of August summer seems to just be slipping by.  I am not ready to let summer go yet, so I created this fun beach themed card with sketch 127 at Card Patterns......

Here is the sketch:

This card also qualifies for the current challenge at My Craft Spot to use bright, hot colors on your project.   This is my off week to make a project for the My Craft Spot design team, but I just loved the challenge, so I decided to participate anyway.  Did you notice the fun stamp release button that is new at the top right side of my blog.  Kimberly at My Craft Spot has some new stamp releases that are sure to knock your socks off!!  I am working on projects that I get to share with you starting on the 22nd and there will be many chances for you to win some goodies.....starting with putting a button on your blog so others can join in on all the fun.  CLICK HERE to check out all the fun details.
