Finally . . . Summer !

It has been an especially long, gray, cold winter, and long, gray, damp spring, particularly because I was ill for most of it. But it's finally warm and sunny, and I have actually ventured into the card-making realm again. It feels clumsy, and like it's the first card I ever made, but here is my entry into a few challenges.


I'm entering it into the following:
Pixie Cottage                         their sketch
Paper Pretties                        red, orange, yellow, neutral
Creative Inspirations               summer
Crafty Creations                    sparkle (it's there, I promise -- Stickles on the cheeks & orange background)
Moving Along With Times      here comes the summer sun
Case Study                            inspiration
Play Date Cafe                      red/orange/yellow/juniper
Inkspirations                          poppy, baja breeze, peach, white

And if anyone who might look at this blog can tell me how to line up the "entries information" so that it looks as if someone who is at least slightly competent did it, I would be SOOO grateful!

Lovely card, thanks for entering the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers but I'm afraid you missed the deadline for the sparkle challenge. We have been looking for thank you cards this week but why not try our new challenge tomorrow instead?
