Summer Day

My grandsons left for their home today so since it was so quiet and I missed them I decided to pass my time by making a card. I went with a summer theme and made it a type of card that might work for many occasions.

My focal image of the girl using her binoculars to view her surroundings is from Great Impressions and is from the Missing You set. This scene was colored in with Zig markers. I also had die cut some kitties from Cheery Lynn Designs but only took the smaller ones and added them to the summer scene.

This focal image was die cut with an oval die and added over the top of a card front of blue card stock. But I only removed a portion of the wonky squares from this blue layer. Then I placed it over a base card of heavy white card stock. And below that I added the die cut sentiment.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
French Lattice Small Frame FRM132
Kitty Kitty Meow Meow B417
God Bless Cara-26

Spellbinder Die used:
Classic Ovals Large

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenge #45-Anything Goes
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Lazy Days of Summer
Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge-Anything Goes

Well, enjoy your weekend and these summer days. They are slipping by way too fast! And thanks for stopping by and for the wonderful comments.

God bless,

Super sweet card, and yes, appropriate for many occasions. I know the quiet that comes in with the absence of grandsons. While it's nice to have my house back, it's bitter sweet....always!

Very cute for a wee girl and would not have thought of putting the kittens on.
