The Colors of Summer.....FMS144







I am headed to a bridal shower this weekend and thought that bright summery colors and the shopping bags from About the Label would work perfectly together on the card. And speaking of summer colors.......

We enjoyed some summery colors last weekend at the lake watching fireworks.



We had a great view of the fireworks from the boat. But it was mighty dark out there on the lake.  I brought along some bright glo-sticks to make into necklaces and bracelets so we could keep track of each other on the boat.  This could be the best picture taken of me ever.......





Karren designed a fabulous sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

Linda, thanks for stopping by my blog today! :)

I love reading your posts...I always say this, but it's true. Saw this post in my email inbox, and laughed out loud over your 'portrait'! That was a good idea, seriously, to use the glow sticks to help find each other. Boy, was it DARK!

Enjoy your summer. :)

Such a fun card! Love those little bags and how they work here. Now as for that picture….i'm certain I have seen some I like better (but this one made me chuckle!).
