Summer Challenges

I was in my craft room about to pack stuff up to take to the lake with me and couldn't resist making a couple of cards for some challenges!!  I always get sidetracked when I am around my crafty stuff!

This card features the ever so adorable Grace Watching Fireworks image from Fresh Brewed Designs.  I think she is just too cute!  When my daughter Allison saw this card she told me she wanted it for her birthday.... can't believe she will be 6 on July 11th!

I am entering this card in these challenges:
For Fun Challenges:  Fourth of July

Bugaboo Stamps is having an amazing sale right now... 50% off your total order!!  I had to pick up a few images on my wish list!!  This little penguin was just calling my name! 
Here are the challenges for this card:

A Spoonful of Sugar:  Animal Crackers
I Love Digi:  Emboss it (the cloud dp is embossed and the light blue paper behind the image was embossed with a cuttlebug folder!!)

Thanks for spending part of your day with me!!  I am headed to the lake tomorrow morning... see you after the holiday!

How cute! Isn't fun to watch the little kids during fireworks? Better than watching the pyrotechnics sometimes. The "stop in your tracks" look of amazement reminds us to slow down and enjoy life. Thanks for the reminder and sharing your creation with For Fun Challenges.

Jenn!!! These are adorable!!! I know what you mean about being sidetracked. 'Luckily' for me my craft room is in the pantry / laundry room which is still upside down from us unpacking from our mini vaca... so even if I wanted to I get overwhelmed when I go in there and give up :/ .... I love them both, I am so glad your little girl likes it too. I know.. they grow up toooo fast! And your buggaboo ... TOOO CUTE!!! I have a thing for penguins too :D Great sale... I may have to try to get in on that myself!!! They have SOOO Many adorable images to choose from!

Have a great trip.
