Sweet Summer Days

The weekend has officially arrived and the KC Chief's are losing to the Ram's in the Governor's Cup so I decided it was time to get some work done instead of yelling my lungs out where no one can hear me except hubby and the 

I should know better than to try and take night pictures and have then turn out good but it's been awhile since I posted and didn't want you all to think I'd flown the coop.  I really have been busy getting some DT cards done for September and the posts scheduled so I can play in a few more challenges next month.

The challenges I'm entering with this card are:
Bells'n Whistles - Anything Goes - you must use an Elisabeth Bell image
Copic Creations - Blue/Green
Elphine House - We All Scream for Ice Cream

Card Deets:
  • Image: Elisabeth Bell Sweet Summer Days from Bells'n Whistles
  • DP Bo Bunny, Bazzill, SU
  • Coloring Medium: Copics (See Picture below)
  • Grass Die/Pine Flower Soft
  • WOC Flowers, MS Bough punch, MS Butterfly punch, Spellbinders dies
It's 3rd quarter and we finally got a TD so I'm off to watch the rest of the ballgame and yell my silly lungs out since we are only down 4 points.  

Hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I'll be sure and come visit real soon.  Will be checking on you this weekend for sure.
Love & Hugs, Carol
