Summer Fun

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I'm so happy the weekend is here! Any exciting plans for the weekend? Hubby and I have some work to do around the house, some errands to run, and then hopefully, we'll be able to relax some and I'll get some time in the craftroom. I really want to find some time to get back into scrapbooking. I have tons of vacation photos from Charleston to scrap as well as just tons of everyday photos from birthdays, get-togethers, holidays, etc. I'm so far behind! I'm hoping to get at least one two-page spread done this weekend so hopefully I'll have that to share next week. Anyway, enough chit chat, on to my card for today :)

For my card today, I decided to create a fun, summery, bright, cheerful card that reminded me of the beach/vacation. I love this image from the Pack Your Bags cricut cartridge and couldn't wait to cut her out. I designed the card in my Gypsy and cut the image and all the layers out. I did some doodling with my white gel pen and then put all the pieces together. Next, I created the frame using the Once Upon a Princess cartridge and cut it out of my DP which is from DCWV. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock. My patterned paper is a mixture of SU and DCWV. For some extra touches, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, a bow (tied with my awesome Bow Easy), and pearls. My sentiment is from an old Studio G set. Just a cute, summery card perfect for a friend as a thinking of you card or even a birthday during the summer months. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by and thank you all SO much for the warm welcome back to blog land. I have missed you all. I promise to get back into my routine of commenting on all your lovely creations. I've missed you all so much. Tons of hugs! Have a wonderful weekend!
