the joys of Summer...
I wish summer lasted all year here in Ontario...but the sad truth is it is such a short period of time so we try to make the most of it! This was my first time ordering the Summer Kit from Magnolia and I am so glad that I did. It came with this cutie...So for this card I coloured up Tilda with the Lyras and I made a small cloud template and sponge around it with a light blue to make some clouds in the background. I then cut out the tag with the nestabilties and stamped the sentiment using the Papertrey stamp collection " A Day at the Beach".
I hope you all are headed off to a beach or pool to enjoy these last weeks of summer before the kids head off to school again for the new year!
