Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well.  Time is just flying by, there is a countdown clock on the kids' school website counting down to the first day of school.  Hollyanne was checking it out when schedules can be picked up and Levi is ready to get the haircut so it looks good when school starts.  LOL  I think they are really ready to go back, get back to the routine and amongst their friends.

So, last week's challenge was a lot of over at Digital Delights.  This week promises just as much fun.  The challenge is....

Dog Days of Summer

I'm not really sure I understand what that term means, but I do know that this is an opportunity to break out your favorite summer images and sunny papers.  Here's my take on this challenge....

One thing that reminds me of summer is a pinwheel.  What a super easy way to embellish a card.  I love tihs!  My card was really easy to put together with help from these amazing papers from Echo Park.  I think they are the perfect compliment to Flying Bumble Bee Larry.  He's so adorable.  Here's his close up....

Cute, right?!  He's sure having fun flying by in his little plane, playing on the summer wind.

So are you ready to play?  Head on over.  Have a great Thursday.
