Summer Blog Hop, 5/21 – 5/22, Day 2

Welcome to the Summer Blog Hop!  If you were just looking at my blog and want to hop along, you’re at the start!  This blog hop is intended to help you get in the mood for summer!  Yesterday was a great day; nice and sunny, today is a little gloomier looking… So maybe take your computer outside, if you can, and enjoy the weather and all the inspiration you’re going to get!  There are 23 other very talented designers that you’ll be visiting!

So without further ado; here’s my card…

It’s a graduation card for my nephew – so proud of him!  He’s very artistically inclined; so hopefully he’ll like the card…The colors are his school colors.  I got the fold directions from http://www.scor-pal.com/feb_magazine/index_files/Page406.htm
The colors are his school colors (I wouldn’t normally use orange & green together!)  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the green paper; and the stickers were from a pack from JoAnn.  I was lucky enough to find some free space on my scrap & easel to take a photo.. the room has gotten messy again!

I definitely think of graduations as summery!  If you didn’t hop by yesterday, be sure to scroll down to see my flip flop card!

Summer blog hop 5/21-5/22

Welcome to the Summer Blog Hop!  If you were just looking at my blog and want to hop along, you’re at the start!  This blog hop is intended to help you get in the mood for summer!  The weather hasn’t been all that great here lately; but today was a gorgeous day, and I actually got to sit outside and drink iced tea for a while; it was a nice treat!  So maybe take your computer outside, if you can, and enjoy the weather and all the inspiration you’re going to get!  There are 23 other very talented designers that you’ll be visiting!

So without further ado; here’s my card…

I saw this paper on a recent trip to JoAnn; I think it was on sale; but it looked so summery!  I always think of pedicures when I think of summer; my friend (and sometimes my mom) and I go get pedi’s… I love them… and enjoy having cute toes!  And of course you have to wear flip flops when you get a pedi!

I used paper I had on hand; citrus stack for the chill out and the straps.  I’ve had the green flowers, and the blue flowers are just white flowers that I colored with my copic markers (a pretty good match, I think!) and of course some gems!

So you can see the dimension; I pop dotted the straps and the letters and the flower
The inside of the card! – stamp says relax, by stampin up!

Ok, so I have some news for you…
I will be hosting a contest; my first one….  So hopefully I have thought through all the bugs.  
Here are the details… If I’ve missed something mention it in your comments and I’ll address it…
