End of Summer!!!


Hi everyone, how are you? Hope you all are well! I made this card as a tribute to the end of summer! Hehe! It was raining out today and very dreary! So, I had this image, that my awesome Sistah Javapinkabella (Kim), sent to me; it was just calling out my name!! It seemed fitting, since summer is almost over! To me, I feel like it already was over, on Kyah's first day of school. Anyway, I hope you like the card! I was trying, as I said before, to use different layouts. You just get stuck in a rut sometimes. I have really been trying to change it up! I wasn't too sure about this one, I think I like it. LOL! What can I say, I'm picky! I wanted to use polka dot BG paper, because of Bikinibella's suit. I thought the CB embossing folder would match too. Oh, well here it is! I think I like it! Haha! So, we don't have any major plans this weekend; how about all of you? We have a cook out at my dad's on Monday, but, other than that, nothing else. Well, at least not yet, you never know. I want to let you all know to keep visiting now and then, because I will soon have an exciting announcement to share!!!! YAY!! I just have a few finishing touches and then I will share it with all of you! I hope you'll stop back in to join in my celebration!! Ok, well, enough for now; time to go feed the little people. Maybe next time I'll share another pic with you! I try not to over do it with that, ya know? Have a great Friday and I'll talk to you soon! Until then.....................

Great card and I love her polka dot bikini. Today in Michigan was hot, humid and miserable. It is still most definitely summer and still bikini season~not for me of course, wouldn't want to scare the neighbors LOL!

Very nice, I really like this one. We had the same kind of weather today, just felt dreary.

She looks beautiful! I love the card! Hope you are enjoying your long weekend! We have lots of plans this weekend...our town has a major labor day celebration. Today helped hubby run the classic car show all day, then tonight is tractor pulls and partying with friends. Now sure about tomorrow yet, and Monday there is a parade. Wednesday I go back to school! Boo :( I am so sad summer is coming to an end! Hope all is good with you and your family! Sending lots of hugs! Can't wait to hear what your surprise is!!!!!!

As usual, I always get such a nice, comforting feeling when I visit your blog. The colors are the same as my bedroom (well, as soon as we move in next week they will be). Love it!

Anyway, Bella is looking might spiffy. I am sorry to see the summer coming to an end. Great card!
