Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog has a timely theme this week - "Here Comes Summer".  When I think of Summer I think of two things...  a slower pace (at least I had a slower pace when I was a kid...  lots of time laying in the grass looking at the clouds...) AND I think of my dog Summer =)  So, Sassy Cheryl's image "A Penny for Your Thoughts" with Sally and her dog Bella was the perfect image for the Challenge!

I used some long retired paper from Close to My Heart along with ribbon and a button from my stash.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches, and the image is colored with Copics then fussy cut and mounted with pop dots.
I'm also entering this card in the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 187.
After a very warm day in the high 80's with humidity in the forecast for the next few days... Summer is definitely here!

Thanks so much for visiting!!
Blessings to you!!

  3. LOVE that image! It really reminds me of lying in the grass watching the clouds as a girl. What happened? Now I don't want bugs to crawl on me and it's too hard to get back up!
