I Love Summer!

Hi Everyone,

I am so glad it is Friday! School is officially done today:)  I do not have any kids in school anymore but I am sure all the kids are excited to begin their summer vacation!  I had a busy week and it seems to be rolling right into my weekend. A few graduation parties to go to this weekend.  I also need  to get a jump start on some things I need to get ready for my guys who are heading to Canada for a week of fishing. So, I have some grocery shopping to do and some baking for them before they take off next weekend. Their is a group of about 20 guys that go~My husband and boys look forward to it every year.

I have made a quick card to enter in a couple challenges for this week: I actually left this card a little plain. A card with no stitching??? Oh well, it's not to bad, is it?

This card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I cut this cute truck from the New Arrival cartridge at 2 3/4 and embossed it with the dots & spots folder. I cut the tiny little apples from the Create a Critter cartridge at 1/2" and layered them in the back of this pickup. I used my gypsy and cut the sentiment~I Love Summer from the Simply Charmed cartridge at .92 x 2.11. Added a little ribbon, twine and buttons for the wheels.

This card reminds me a little bit of my summer days as a kid. Once school was out, we use to pick the garden for my parents, feed the chickens and go to my Grandpa's farm and my Aunt/Uncles farm and jump in the truck and go pick, eat and shhhhh sometimes throw apples. We also enjoyed many hay rides. FUN times.... miss those days!
I hope you enjoy my quick card! Enjoy your weekend:)

Challenges: More than favors~CCCC #19~New Arrival cartridge
