Hello Summer!

Hello!  Hope your Thursday is fabulous!  We were supposed to go to the beach with friends today but of course it rained.  We do need rain but sadly it hardly rained and has left us with hot weather and humidity!  Luckily quickly my friend organized a playdate and we all went to her house.  It was fantastic for us all to get together.  It was 7 of us moms with 21 kids.  It wasn't as bad as you think it would be!  Still had a fabulous time!

Just wanted to beg you to vote for me if you haven't for Paper Crafts Reader's Choice!  My card is the cute froggy one!  :>  You can vote here!

Today I have a post up at the Scrapbooking Cafe Online blog I made two fun summery cards using the Hello Summer line by Echo Park along with some Memory Box dies:


For details of these cards please visit the Scrapbooking Cafe Online's blog!

I made a fun summery wreath!  I really wanted a summery wreath for my door!  :>  Any wreath I make is for sale so I often sell whatever I have and I was left wreathless!  I was busy with gallery idol and all that so I didn't have a chance to make myself a new one!

 

Quite bright and fun, right?  On Monday when I went Strawberry picking I drove by a wholesale store and stopped in and got some wreaths!  Than on Tuesday I was in the area of a store that sells different colored felt than the Michaels so I stopped in there and got some new colors.  And I also got some new yarn and this wreath came together quite fast.  I wrapped it while at dinner at my inlaws and in the car between errands!  I've always wanted a multi colored yarn, it came that way so it was easy!  This flower usually takes me the longest but this time it didn't!  I thought with the multi colors the one big flower was enough!  :>  

Well that's it for me!  I got to get on top of dinner the kids are starting to get hungry!  Seems like they are always hungry these days!

Beautiful wreath! Love the multicolored yarn you used for it. And your cards are so pretty & cheerful. The striped pattern peeking out from the flower negative die cut is wonderful.

I was wondering how did you get the multi colors look, thought it took days to finish when I saw it on FB :) Love the happy cards too! Fun and bright!

Love your cards and your wreath. I love to do things when in the car, too. Unfortunately, I am usually the one driving. My parents were up for about 6 wks recently, and even though my backseat in not as comfortable as the from, I gladly sat in the back, just so I did not have to drive, so I could work on on crocheting and doing some fun cardwork.

Your wreath is gorgeous!!! The pink felt flower is so striking! Love the cards you made with the MB dies- that perched bird is such a cutie! We so desperately need rain here too- no one has a green lawn anymore and I've almost given up on my hanging baskets:(

Your cards are beautiful and that wreath is FABULOUS! Did you use a die to cut the felt flower? I think I want to make one for my mom for next mother's day. (I always plan ahead, but end up actually doing things at the last minute)o-well :)
