Is It Summer Yet???????

After the Winter Blues Shopping Our Stash is wondering if it's SUMMER yet?  For this fortnight we want to see you use something summer/bright and cheery/warm on your project.  Since I make Christmas/Winter cards all year long it's really hard to switch gears to make a summer card but with the help of my dear friend Maxwell I got it together.


Of course I used a stamp from my favourite company, House Mouse Designs,  The patterned paper is from a DCWV 4 1/2 X 6 pack I have had so long I have no idea when or where I bought it, it's probably somewhere 5 to 10 years old. I have 7 different packs for all occasions even Halloween.


I added several coats of wink of stella to the beach ball to give it  some sparkle.


The inside just waiting for a sentiment, I decided to leave it "generic" although I usually send more Birthday cards.

I'm adding this to:

Thanks for visiting today, head over to the main blog and see what "summer" creations the rest of the design team has made.

This is a fun image with them playing ball. I don't how long it'll last with those claws. The inside of your card is just as nice as the outside. Thank you for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends
