Muse Inspiried Card!

Hello Friends!  Here we are at the end of July already!  Only a month and a bit left of summer!  It's really flying by! Sadly we have cool weather here!  Today you need long pants and a hoody how cool it is!  Last week was the same and looks like next week too, hoping for summer to come back!

Today I have a card to play along with the Muse Challenge!  I am new to this challenge, when I saw that my friend Lynn was the Muse I was inspired by her card to play along!



I was inspired by the colors Lynn used (loved that she was inspired by a dress her niece designed!)  I was inspired by how she stamped onto colored cardstock (not something I do often) so I did too!  And instead of using a Polaroid like she did I switched it up and used a speech bubble!

I am also entering this card into this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Anything Goes!

I added a new wreath to my shop, it was a custom order and I liked it so much I added it to my shop!  It's one of my first ones with an initial!  I can add an initial to any wreath for $5!  You can find it here.

Last week we enjoyed a trip to Minneapolis!  We had such a great time!  We drove as it's just over 6 hours away, the kids did pretty good with the drive!  We went to the Minnesota Children's Museum, The Komo Zoo, Spent the day at Valley Fair (and the soak city there) took the Mono Rail from MOA to Minneapolis downtown and did lots of shopping and trying new restaurants!  The kids also really enjoyed swimming at the hotel pool each day too!  What a great trip!  :>

That's it from me!  See you soon!

I had to take a quick peek before heading out on our next road trip. So glad that I did! This card packs so much eye punch, Anita! Love the contrast and the design. This wreath is so elegant and unique. Glad you had a great vacation and can't believe you've done so much crafting already! I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Hugs!

Pretty card, Anita!
I'm wanting some hot weather, too. I told the kids I'd take them to Fun Mountain this summer. We couldn't go the first two weeks of July (when it was hot!) because we had swimming lessons. Now I'm checking the forecast daily, because I want to figure out when we can go. I want it to be at least 28C....
