Colorful Sweet Summertime

Hi!

Woo-wee are you staying cool??? We are expected to reach temps in the 100's again. Yesterday was the last day of my son's mini British Soccer Camp and they ended with a water-gun fight because it was blazing hot by the time the class was finished. They had a blast and again I sing their praises and if you are looking for something for your little one to do this summer I highly recommend this organization. :-)

Okay, I was able to work on another card during nap time...I wish I could say I got it completed in nap time, but the little man had other plans and only took a quick one today. I figured he would be tired out! Wishful thinking on my part!

I started with a cream card base and decided to shop my stash. I have lots and lots of scraps and lots and lots of patterned paper pads, so I just started pulling things together again to use my stash. I ended up working with bolder colors because my tendency is to use softer colors, so I have a lot more of these bolder brights in my inventory. 
The stamps I used are from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade. This set is just perfect for summer! Lots of layering and die-cuts used, so I feel accomplished in getting my money's worth out of my supplies with this one! :-)

Lisa of A Mermaid's Crafts inspired my creation today. She makes amazing creations with her Spellbinders, so I thought I would incorporate several in my make today. 

I am joining along My Craft Spot - Hot Summer Colors and Young Crafter's Unite - Many Layers

I just realized that my colors are in line with The Play Date Cafe so why not throw my hat in the ring there too! 
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
~Tammy!
