It's Always SUMMER Somewhere....


Happy Saturday everyone! I can't believe that summer is flying by so quickly - as usual! It's already July 22 and I haven't made it to the lake to sit on the beach yet and crochet or read, or just...BE :) It's so relaxing to listen to the waves and soak up a bit of sunshine!

This week, I am sharing a summery card made for "A Way With Words," from The Project Bin:


I used the set called "Summer Fun" and some cool summer designer paper to create this bright, cheery card perfect for a friend or family member to invite them to the beach and hang out!

Paper Sweeties Challenge - Anything Goes July 2017


Welcome back to my blog! This month at Paper Sweeties, we have a brand new challenge for you - just in time for the 4th of July! Here's this months inspiration photo for your jump off point:


I am sharing a card I made last year but never used before - and this is the perfect opportunity! Happy 4th of July to my USA family and friends! xoxo


I used the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts to make my stripes and the Sweet Cuts Be Happy to make the star. I believe the Stars & Stripes sentiment is from a retired set. Very clean and simple but definitely speaks volumes!


Please be sure to check out what the rest of my Paper Sweeties team mates have created for you - sooo much amazing talent - then be sure to come play with us!





Thank you so much for stopping in today! Happy crafting!
