Summer Card and Summer Plans!

Hey there everyone,

Hope yours is shaping up to be a great summer! We're about to kick ours off with an annual trip to the Oregon Coast. Beautiful! It's become one of my favorite yearly traditions, and I'm super excited to get away. Later in July I'll be going to middle school camp for Young Life (YAY!) followed by a family campout, which brings all the relatives together in the great outdoors. What a great summer!

With that in mind, this summer-themed card is particularly appropriate, since what you see is pretty much what I can't wait to do: relax in the sun! This card was self-indulgent in other ways, too. I love coloring on my cards, so I just picked out some really fun stamps to color: flip flops, tropical drinks, etc, and of course DeNami's stylish cover girl, Mimi! (I want her job!) And don't miss the little bit of bling on my flip flops in the way of two hot pink rhinestones. Yum!

There is a fabulous summer card challenge going on now at the DeNami blog. There's no limits or restrictions -- just make a fun summer card and submit for chance to be in the Fab 3 Spotlight!
