meg-schoolsout-smDon’t ya just long for summer vacation! Well Meg sure does or did anyway (it took me a little bit to post this card, so her 5 days of waiting for it is up I’m sure).

Here’s what Meg did to make the card.

1. I used Crate Paper’s School Spirit and Emma’s Shoppe paper pads for the background.
2. I printed the sentiment on Papertrey Ink’s Ocean Tides cardstock in light gray using Love Ya Like a Sister font, then whet over it with a white pencil for a chalk look.
3. I stamped Kati Ann has Something to Say onto white paper, colored, cut out, and adhered with foam tape.
4. I stamped and embossed the banner, cut out, and adhered.

holly-skylimit-smI was out in my garage making stamps and in between made this little card. I wanted to use a little set of cloud dies I’d recently gotten. I think they are just too cute and Bunny the dog looking up at them made the perfect combination.

What a day for sunshine! Jinah sent in this wonderful card complete with puffy felt clouds!


Here’s a close up of the detail. I love her clever use of different colored string to create the rainbow. An anytime card when you’d just like to send someone some happy, sunny thoughts.

linda-wheee2-smAn email came Linda and when I opened it up I just couldn’t help but giggle. I don’t know about you, but these days I’m with Linda in that a whole lot of skinny dippin’ isn’t happening here – only CHUNKY DUNKING!


Her card is so cute – I love all the colors, layers and embellishments! And the flower on the swim cap she added because it reminded her of one that her mom used to wear. I remember seeing those swim caps and wondering how girls got all their hair under them!

She also sent me a link to this photo she’d posted on her blog awhile back. I hope she doesn’t mind me re-posting it here. :)

annie-sweetbaby-smToday I’m posting two cards from Annie. It looks like with a little dash of pixie dust and a spot of sunshine she’s growing little sprouts! annie-teenybaby-smI never would have thought of putting little fairy Sprout in the flower pot, but I guess that’s where sprouts go. :) Very clever idea Annie!

moon-frog-smMoon sent in this cute box project. I love the gingham paper and ribbon against the brown polka dots. Her shading on the frog is just so lovely, and if that wasn’t enough she topped  it all off  with some scallops!

Honestly, with a box like this who needs anything at all inside! :)
