Summer sweetness...

Yay! Summer is finally officially here! Not too thrilled about the heat, especially being 7 months pregnant, but after the winter we had, I still welcome it! Speaking of summer, here are a couple of summery cards I made for a Kim Hughes Sketch challenge over at Paper Crafts. I ♥ this sketch!

This first one uses some paper by Little Yellow Bicycle (Snugglebug line) and some cardstock stickers by Echo Park (Sweet Summertime).This next card uses some of my favorite paper by The Girl's Paperie {Paper Girl line} and October Afternoon {Thrift Shop}, as well as some hemp cord, MS punched butterflies, Zva Creative crystal swirls and a cardstock sticker by Echo Park. I hand cut the cloud, painted the edges with some white paint and then added some glitter to it while still wet.Here is the fun sketch:Sorry for the quick post, we are off to look at my son's Nursery School. He will start in September. My stomach already has butterflies in it just thinking about him leaving me even for those few hours a day!! He is my daily little partner and shadow. My little Best Friend!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hugs & much love...

Great cards! The top one is my favorite because it is so bright and cheery! Best of luck getting through the summer with your pregnancy--it can be a little unbearable but worth it in the end! :-)
