Enjoying the summer

So as I'm writing this, I'm enjoying my deck and pool with my 3 boys!  They are spending a lot of their energy as I write ;))))  Got to love summer time!  We are celebrating St-Jean Baptiste in Quebec today.  It's our holiday.  So that means since it's falling on a Sunday that I will be off on Monday!!!!  YAY!  I don't  know what the weather will be like... but I hope nice enough that my hubby and daughter who are back tonight will get to enjoy the pool as well!

Last week.... I had created a card especially for the Digi Haven challenge... and I realized when I went to look at the winners that I had forgotten to link my card up!  How bad is that... So this time I better make sure that I linked up.

This morning I created this card because I thought of the fun I'll be having now ;)  Summer time was my inspiration for this card.

My digi is from Hambo stamps it's a freebie and it's called Cool Cat.  I think he is a pretty cool cat ;)))

I used a Large scalloped rectangle to cut out the blue rectangle.  I used some flip flops from Jolee boutique stickers.  And another sticker from the dollar store with a great saying.  The Happy was written out with letters that my dad picked up at a garage sale.  Isn't  he sweeeet ;)  Picking up stuff for me.  The ribbon was from a basket that I received some time ago.  And the paper is from a little pack of 6x6 called beach bum from Fancy pants design.  I picked it up at Stamp and create.  I just loooooved the waves ;)

Here's a closer look at my digi:

I followed the wonderful sketch at  Willow Sketchie:

I'm entering this card at the following challenges:
  1. Digihaven - Summer/Beach/Surf use of freebie image
  2. Willow sketchie challenge - sketch and bold and bright (I think I did both ;) )
  3. Aud sentiments challenge - Bingo (happy, ribbon, die cut)
  4. 2 sisters challenge blog - Anything goes
  5. Robyns fetish challenge - no flowers... that was a hard one lol (I had to cover up the flowers on the flip flop of the digi  I blinged it up ;) )
  6. Shopping our stash - stickers (I have the flip flops and the saying)
  7. Deep ocean challenge - Welcome summer

So that's it!  Now I'm going to continue enjoying the pool... prepare my blog post and schedule them because tomorrow I'll be sleeping YAY when they go off...   I may create more tonight... we will see and definetively be back tomorrow for more posting.  2 for my wonderful DT teams Tammy's Scraping Corner and Digi Darlas.  Just sooooo happy to be part of wonderful teams.  And on Tuesday it will be Jackson's digital!
