Summertime



It's summertime and today I have a card that depicts a fun thing to do when it's hot - go fishing!! I used a Penny Black image, colored it with Copics and matted it with some green cardstock, then used light aqua for the card base. I cut the image and mat with stitched rectangle dies, and then added a sun done with stitched dies, with an orange snippet for the center.

It's going to be blazing hot and humid today, so I hope you can find something cool to do - like going fishing or swimming!

I'm entering this into the following challenges :

Little Red Wagon challenge #349 - "summertime."

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  - use the following photo for inspiration. The blue skies, water, and first 2 colors inspired me :)


Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Wednesday!

This card is adorable Carol! And such a fun card for the summer too. Those little hedgie's are to cute fishing. They must be catching some sunnies! lol Love the fish spitting the water up. Yes, a scorcher today. I mowed, tended the pool with pool chemicals, and painted my little bistro table that sits on the pool deck. Need to do underneath, but need more spray paint dang it. So I'm glad to be in the cool right this minute. I did take a dip after mowing, had to! lol Stay cool Carol! Hugs, Brenda

Oh yah this is a great summertime card. I see there have been a couple of fish caught or at least getting the attention of the fishermen on this little excursion. Love that sun. It was shining just as bright here on Wednesday but yesterday and today kind of cloudy. Quite lower temps today also, thank goodness. Have a good day.

Super adorable card, Carol! Love these hedgies and this image! It has been horrible weather wise. My hubby loves to go fishing but it was even to hot & humid for him! TFS
