It is time for some Summer Lovin' at Catered Crop!
Sweet, sweet burn of sun and summer wind,
and you my friend, my new fun thing, my summer fling.
Can you feel the love?
I was most definitely feeling the love yesterday because I made three summery cards! (Or perhaps I was avoiding a paper I need to write in the final week of my class!) I just couldn't decide what part of summer I wanted to focus on.
The melting popsicles?
The sunshine card is for the Never-Before-Used-Schtuff challenge. It's my last of the maximum three entries, although I'm embarrassed to admit how many more NBUS cards that I could do. Besides using stuff from my NBUS stash, the challenge includes a friendship theme. If you can't read the embossed part of the card it says "You always bring the sunshine". I am so blessed with good friends who are always willing to lend a listening ear and bring sunshine back into my life. This card uses Simon Says Stamp products - You Are My Sunshine stamp and die set (with the striped part of the sun from Circle Friends) and the Cloud Bank die.
The row of colorful drinks is for the Paper Smooches Designer Draft. The drinks are from Paper Smooches Free Spirits stamps and coordinating dies, and the sentiment is from Word Up.
I do hope you play along with the Catered Crop Summer Lovin' challenge. There's about a week and a half left. Linda curates a Pinterest board which she introduces when the challenge opens. Here's a sample. Then next Sunday, you will see all of the design team cards on the Catered Crop blog. Hope you are inspired!
