Summer is so quickly slipping by and the schools will be gearing up in a couple of weeks for the return of the kids. The fellows are starting to grow bored and the school supplies are in house. The wet, warm weather has packs of mosquitos chasing us from here to there. Here are a few shots from this summer. One thing is for sure, they are growing up fast. Enjoy!



So many yummy things in her candy pile.

Color Throwdown 100th Challenge

In celebration of their 100th color throw down challenge and just about every stamp company has come to the party! Go here to enjoy all the submissions from some extremely talented artists..... . And the best part is that they've all contributed prizes to be given away!
This is my first challenge and I can't say my work is amazing, but it was an important card. The colors for the throw down today are Regal Rose, Certain Celery, Real Red and Baja Breeze. Don't worry if you don't have the exact colors to play along, just use something similar.

My paper is SU with their Pink Passion with some off white stamped cardstock with SU inks. The ribbon is also SU in Celery. The butterflies are from Martha Stewart in red and blue covered with Stickles to add some sparkles and also MS with the punch in the corner. The images are from SU Spring Solitude and as Close as a Memory. The flower is some blue cardstock made into a posie supplemented with a couple of pink petals from Portafolia with copics to add depth and brushed with Stickles. The brad is from Making Memories.
Sadly this card was for a childhood playmate that suffered from a brain aneurysm and passed quickly late last week. She loved her family and flowers. I hope this brings a smile to the family in a difficult time.
By the way..... goodness it sure likes to rain this summer!
