Sweet Summer

While the sun is reminding me that summer is soon to end, this card was made to celebrate summer!  I made it to feel fresh and "sweet".

The watermelon slice and sentiment is from the {ippity} set, "New Season, New Wonder".  Below is a close-up of the melon:

Isn't it scrumptious?  I thought you'd agree!

The ribbon is a 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon from the Hot/Cold bundle.  The color may be "Ice Blue", but it screams Fruity Caribbean beverage to me!

So, like I said in the opening sentence, the summer is soon to part us...We, the dogs and I, went on another walk again after work while Dave biked, and by the time we got back to the car (just after 8 pm), it was already almost dark! Sigh.

But hey, here's a picture of my sweet muddy pups in the car ready to come home (for a beer)!

A great reminder of summer. It was 46 degrees here this morning! I mailed out your blog candy on Wed.
Your card is definitely scrumptious! That set is on my long wish list. It is perfectly refreshing for summer. Your doggies are darling sitting in the car! Love it! :)
Great card! Love the crinkled ribbon!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…
