S-U-M-M-E-R!!! ☼

Happy Summer, my lovelies!!!! 

I hope everyone's enjoying their summer days!!!  Please, excuse my long absence--again!!  I've started working at Summer Day Camp with the amazing BADGER!!!  And although it is a lot of fun, truth be told, by the time I get home each day, I am SO fatigued, all I do is prepare my backpack for the next day at camp and then head straight to bed!!!  Yes, even with the sun still shining outside!!!  I'm really hoping things slow down after my move to MD and then I'll try to check in on the blog at least once a week for sure!!!  In the meantime, please forgive me as I have TONS on my plate--working at day camp, PLUS getting ready for a new job.  

And well, I'm back, because it's time to announce the new July challenge over at V's Sweet Challenge!!!  It's all about Summer Fun, which right now, everyone seems to have dived into!!  I'm hoping you'll join the fun at V's Sweet Challenge this month and link up your lovely projects!!  V's Sweet Ideas is also the sponsor for this month's challenge.  The winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the online shop.  Word is, Vanessa has restocked the store with brand new and yummy products that you'll be sure to love!!!  (i.e. Freckled Fawn - hint, hint?!!) (;

Below, you'll see my SUMMER in the sun card I created for this month's exciting and super FUN challenge!!!

I had a blast working with my Lawn Fawn goodies.  I don't think there's any other easier way to add cheerfulness, charm and happiness to a card other than to use Lawn Fawn products!!!  Instant results--no joke!!!! :D  I also used the wicked fun and sunshiny sequins provided by the sweet, Vanessa from V's Sweet Ideas!!!  And those fun letters to spell out SUMMER, I heat embossed in white.  Then, I colored the letters in--directly on kraft cardstock--using my Inktense pencils (w/out water).  For a full list of the supplies I used on this card, check below.

Supplies Used:
V's Sweet Ideas: Sequins
Lawn Fawn: Sunny Skies; Quinn's ABCs; Quinn's ABCs - Lawn Cuts; Pink Lemonade Petite Paper Pack
Hero Arts: Card base
Recollections: Kraft cardstock (Michaels)
Derwent: Inktense pencils
Vellum paper, Sakura white gel pen, VersaMark ink, white embossing powder and Glossy Accents

It's been a pleasure having you visit me here on the blog today!!!  I hope you leave inspired and I can't wait to see your gorgeous artwork pop up on the V's Sweet Challenge blog.  Have a delightful and very blessed day!!! XOXO
