WOW! It's July Already!!!


I don't know how June slipped away, but it's already July!! Wasn't it just winter a couple weeks ago??

There's a new challenge over at Deedee's digis blog for July, and this month's "digi of the month" is called "So Cool." If you played along with the June challenge, you should already have this adorable digi image, but if you didn't, you can still pick it up at a reduced price during the July challenge, or it's free with a $10 order from Deedee's store!

I used the pre-colored image from the set, and enhanced it a little with Copics and a blue glitter pen. The background was done with diagonally-placed washi tape from Recollections, and I added a couple matching mini buttons with thin shreds of cardstock strung through them. The cardstock colors are retired Cool Caribbean from SU! (yes, I'm still hoarding a few sheets of that gorgeous color!)

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out my DT teamies creations for inspiration and fun right here.

Such a cute card, Carol. I guess we'll being needing ice to cool off soon, though we've had a mild summer so far. We'll be 95 today but back to mid 80's later in the week...cool and rainy summer, so far. I don't care for it. LOL You know I like my hot weather. Crazy me!

Yes, time if flying. Christmas will be here before we know it.

With the change in the month's name, do you realize just how close we are to Santa Day? Oh my! So loving this DeeDee's month digi. That is one cool bird enjoying his ice bath. He will be on my agenda as soon as I can finish up 4th of July cards! Love how you have him all chilled up in these icy colors, and really liked that subtle touch with the buttons matching that dotty ribbon. A very nice design too, with the way you've placed the diagonal ribbons. Cool! TFS & Hugs

I was trying to decide if that were ribbons or washi in the background. I was leaning more towards ribbon until you spilled the beans. Fun image! Just chillin' indeed!

Sorry I'm late in getting around to visit you Carol, summer is keeping me busy but lazy too. lol I will be joining the penguin when I jump in to my pool this afternoon to cool off. I hope you are having a fabulous summer so far, but I have to confess it is going by much, much to fast! Hugs, Brenda
