Fun in the Summertime....

Good Morning!!!
I am back from my vacation and
to be honest it is the first time I am so
not happy to be home!!! LOL
We all had such a good time and wished
we could live there ~ along with the other
families that went with us!!

Anyways there is a new challenge over
at Belles and Whistles!! Kathrin has
challenged us to create a Summer card!
This adorable image was perfect:

I have used some older October Afternoon papers paired
with some from the new set.  I also added crackle paint
to all the edges and went over the sun with some glitter.
The sentiment is from an old CTMH set.
The image was colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's.
The flower is from Ladybug and Friends.

This is another one of those images that I just find
to be too cute for words!! Love every little
detail and scenes that Elisabeth captures!
Make sure to stop by the blog and see the
other ladies gorgeous cards!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope to get
a good blog hop tomorrow after all my washing
is done!! I have so much to do to get my
house back in order!! haha
We spent our days swimming and we played
alot of kickball and volleyball!! My arms
are all black and blue!! LOL

I want to leave you with a couple pics 
of our vacation:

They had alot of kids to play with!!!!

Just had to throw this one in as it is one of the
rare pictures of me!! LOL Rach grabbed
the camera while I was making burgers!

Have a lovely day!!

Hi Kathy your card is lovely and I have again to admire your beautiful colouring. This is the perfect stamp for summer feeling.

Where have you been on vacation?

I still have to wait 1 more months before I can also be on holiday.

I wish you a great week.
