Good Morning, friends!
It's the 28th of the month and that's when the Calendar Girls blogging group
get together + create a card around the challenge given to us by our hostess.
Last month, I was running on 3 hours of sleep a day and
read June's challenge for May .. boy, was my face red! :)
But lucky for me, the wonderful Cally Girls said switch months -
make June May and make May June ... o-kay! Works for me!
So the May now June challenge ... for me ... is as follows:
MAY 2013 CHALLENGE
Miss May: April
My theme is easy I would like you each to make a card representing one thing you hope to accomplish over the summer. It could be a garden, a vacation, a weight loss, whatever, BUT you do have to tell us what you are hoping to accomplish!
With 4 kids, going 180 mph all day, every day during the year,
the summer is the time of year when we unwind, relax, rejuvenate
in the glory of all God's gifts around us.
I'm blessed to have them so near during this short time and we make the best of the time we spent in the summer - together!
Yes, we'll have those gorgeously lazy mornings, the long bike rides in the sunshine, catching waves at the beach, and hopefully me putting a dent in my long list of best-sellers that have my name on them :) But most of all, my wish for them - for us - is to do all the things that make them smile, bring happiness to their lives and to keep the dreams they dream soaring.
For my card, I inked up my Tweet Spots from The Alley Way Stamps -
love, love this whimsical set! I stamped the image and then re-stamped it onto the dsp to paper piece the birdhouse. I LOVE gingham so I really wanted a bit of that in the card :) The fence is propped up on 3d foam dots for extra dimension. I'm so happy with how this card turned out :)
I'll be entering this into TAWS Challenge 31 using this inspiring photo:
Thanks for stopping by today!
