Summer Time!

Wow Whew--I have to start off this post with clapping myself--Samantha over at SP Color Combos found my blog last week and invited me over to her challenge blog, sooo, I just had to enter and low and behold I got picked as one of the top 10 winners. Thanks-Samantha! Will add my blinkie prize latter this evening.
Now on to my a summer time card. These are challenges and for some reason I've had a hard time coming up with some cute summer time cards, but today, after much contemplation, I think it's kind of cute. On top of the outside cuteness, the little ditty on the inside I made up, so I signed my name to it. I just love this set of stamps from Stampin Up I find myself using them quite a bit, very versatile. These challenges have also been very good for me because it has caused me to really get into allll my stash and do some organizing and reorganizing and actually use some things I've been hoarding, but we all know that will only make room for more new stuff, birthday and Christmas on the way. I'm practicing with my anniversary photo box, these are my 2nd and 3rd photos, hope to improve with time.

4 Challenges:
Supplies: Card Blank: Yellow 5 1/4" X 7 1/4"-The Paper Co. Value Pack Hobby Lobby, white textured card stock, yellow card stock, back ground paper-Paper Symphony Crafters Block II-Seasons and Holidays, Stamps: Stampin Up-Stardust, Ink: CTMH-Z2162 Honey, CTMH marker-sunny yellow, ribbon-Hobby Lobby, printed my poem in Printmaster 11, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
