Summer's Top Five......PPA47......


Pals Paper Arts summer theme led me to create this card using the Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I love summer and here are my Top Five Reasons why:

                     5.  No heat bills
                     4.  Extra hours of daylight
                     3.  Campfires by the lake
                     2.  Reading on the beach
                                    AND
                     1.  The guys do most of the cooking!

Adorable, Linda! I love the colors that you selected for our little "grillin' guy! And, my hubby does all of the summer cooking!

I love it, the layout, the colors, so cheery. My hubby used to do the summer cooking, years back, now he says I just don't want to dirty a skillet. I haven't had a grilled Ribeye in years!!! But, he hasn't either, lol. Hugs,

Linda, this is so cute. My husband would love the grillin' card but not the bees, he's terrified of them!! The bees add the perfect touch in the corner of your card!

Mary Fish said...

That's why I love AZ . . . we grill out most of the year and my husband takes over dinner. Woo hoo. What an adorable card! Love the touch of bees! Hugs, Mary

Oh so cute Linda. I like how you did your ribbon through the eyelets! I would like to add that touch to one of my cards...thanks for the inspiration.

very cute linda. it looks like all that coloring probably took some time. living in tx i don't get to enjoy cheaper bills or campfires (there's usually a burn ban going on, that and it's 100 degrees and no one wants to sit by a fire!) i enjoyed your card- thanks for sharing.

Love the new approach with the colored pic. And the checked paper gives the feel of a picnic table cloth. Good choice.

Melissa said...

I absolutely agree on those reasons to love summer!

Hi Linda! This is a wonderful card!! I am lucky to say that my Hubby does all the cooking all year round. When I cook... it is for fun. :-) GREAT card! I think I need this stamp set. Thank you for commenting on my blog! It's fun to see that. ~Michele
