Summer Fun...

Edit - this card was chosen as a winner at The Pink Elephant Challenge #79!

Hi - I'm back with several cards tonight. I hate to post them all in one night, but with my work schedule, it's all I can do. So, this sweet pink card is for many challenges. I love it when that happens!

I started with this adorable little girl playing hopscotch...didn't you just love playing hopscotch on the playground and in the driveway or on the sidewalk...anywhere we could draw it! Anyway, this idea was inspired by the Flourishes Kids Play Challenge and of course there are several challenges asking for pink and pearls and anything girly this week, so it fits right in! I also goes along with the summer fun challenges too - hopscotch was so much fun as a kid and all you needed was a piece of chalk and a rock!

The papers are from a new paper pad by Tim Holtz called Vintage Shabby and you know I love vintage and shabby! It's all pinks and blues in various patterned vintage papers! I love it! (especially cause it was on sale at M's) So, I got my Bow Easy in the mail too - LOVE IT!!! A few pearls and a pearl scroll, a great sketch and you have it!

I hope you like it - I'll be back after dinner (my daughter's favorite - homemade chicken pot pie!) with more!

  1. What a cute card. Love the little girl and it sure does bring back memories. I lived in a small town of about 80 people and we played hopscotch on the front porch of my Dad's grocery store. Oh what fun!

    Beautiful colors and I love how you layered the corner punches. Great job!
