Sassy Cheryl Alger's Latest Challenge-HERE COMES SUMMER!

I would imagine that there will be many kids during the summer, when they are out of school, with all the time in the world on their hands, that will just lay back in a field of grass and just stare up at the clouds in the sky and be glad for some lazy days ahead.  So when I saw that the challenge at Sassy Cheryls Challenge blog  was Here Comes Summer, I thought of this great image that I had of Cheryl's called A Penny for Your Thoughts.  

I used some great cloud paper stitched to a blue mat, colored the digital image with copics, fancy cut the image and then used some card stock stickers and border from a summer set.  Think this is a great "Thinking of You" card heading off to a dear friend.

Be sure to check out all of her weekly challenges-she has great themes and you could win the prize of 2 digital images for your library!  See you there!

  2. You're right. It is a beautiful day!!!! And so is your card. Your coloring is stunning!!!! I wish I had time to stare at the clouds a little too. I wonder if they would mind having company. I hate to disturb them.
    Thanks for playing along in the SUMMER challenge this week with the Sassy gals this week.

    1. I'm so glad you like the design-I love the image. LOL, I kept looking at this post thinking that something was odd about the clouds and then, I finally figured it out! After I stitched the clouds and mat together-I turned the paper the wrong way! The Clouds are UPSIDE DOWN-ROFL! I was sitting there looking at it with my head sideways and said awwww, now I see. Too Funny-What a dork! Oh well, it's unique!

    1. thanks for your sweet words Judy!!! Don't look too close--as I told Cheryl, ditzy me placed the clouds upside down!!! I kept wondering what was wrong with the picture and then turned my head sideways and said "you've got to be kidding me!" Oh well it's unique, just like the digis!
