Summer Fun!!!

Well Summer is officially here but the weather isn't exactly co-operating. It has been rainy and cloudy here for most of the week.  I haven't had a much time to spend in my craft room this week.  You know, I say that every week lately!  I don't seem to have much spare time at all recently.  I really need to schedule my time a little better it seems.  Oh well, I did manage to get my craft room all cleaned up and organized so that I can actually function in there.  I have been working on cards for my husbands store, but they are all repeats of designs I've posted before.  Coming up with new designs seems to be a real challenge for me right now.  I think I have a case of crafter's block. So I decided to head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog and see what kind of inspiration I could find.  I also received my stamps from the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge I won a few weeks ago and I really wanted to use them. The stamps are from the "Lulu on the move" set.

This week the challenge is Summer Fun - it didn't have to be a summer image but use bright summer colors.  I thinks the colors from these papers by Three Bugs In a Rug papers are nice and bright for summer.  I actually picked the papers first and then picked copics to match it (YR00, 12, 14, 24 - Y00, 02, 04 - E00, 01, 02 - R81, 83, 85 - N1, N5 & YG25).  I also used some diamond stickles on her hair ribbon and skates.  I edged the picture and patterned papers with pink grapefruit versa magic chalk ink.  I used a corner rounder punch on the corners of the picture and the mat.  I stamped the greeting with ranger archival ink and added a few brads for some fun embellishments.  I used 3d foam dots to attach the main image.
That's it for tonight, I will be back with another post tomorrow.  I have to post 2 more projects this week to make up for only one last week.  Have a great Friday everyone and thanks for stopping by.
