beach picnic.....

Isn't summer the best time of the year! No more heavy winter coats and boots....the temperatures are wonderful, the sun is out, at least most of the days! I love doing summery cards..... There are a couple of challenges this week that have totally inspired me......Anyone for Anya......Don't be square
One Stop Craft Challenge....Summer Breeze
This chick is so ready for the beach....she has her picnic basket and she is ready to spend the day just relaxing...isn't that what summer is all about!

Another recipe card to add to my growing collection! I am so thrilled to be making my recipe booklet! It has been sooo much fun...make a card and then I just try to match it with a recipe card! Too fun!
Have a wonderful day.......enjoy the sunshine wherever you are!

  1. Your card has made me smile Christine. The picnic basket is half her size so she will be enjoying a good lunch there. She is such a cutie, I love her and I love the way you are matching the recipe cards to the cards you make. The weather is improving here at last. Marianne x

  3. Another awesome recipe card! I'm so jealous. Maybe I'll ditch the cruise and come stamp with you. This one is so cute and I love your cute recipe images. I'm not sure if I'd ever make what's on the card because I'd be sitting there admiring how cute these are instead.

  12. Christine, she is such a cutie. I love your scalloped round card and the recipe card that goes along with it. You're doing an amazing job with your recipe card project.
    I'm not quite ready for summer yet. Enjoying the cooler climate--don't like if it gets too hot.

  32. Stop! Stop! Stop! I just can't take any more!
    I have been on a diet for the last ten days, having put on 5lbs during my recent holiday after I had already struggled to find clothes to take with me that would fit. It was a good thing I was in Florida where almost any thing goes clothes-wise.
    But since I have been back home and visiting your blog, all I see are gorgeous recipe cards full of fabulous recipes and tasty imagery. The only thing that makes a visit bearable is the fact that your accompanying greetings are oh so sweet but even they are full of food. Stop, stop, stop! I drool everytime I come by here because your cards are so cute and I dribble because the content is so yummy! Hungry hugs to you! Lesley
