Celebrate Summer!

Having completed the ordered Wedding card and the belated Mother’s Day card, and with no upcoming birthdays anytime soon, today I was faced with a situation that doesn’t come along very often; I wanted to make a card, but there was no special occasion to make one for. Well, having said that, it wouldn’t be bad if I’d get started with my Christmas Cards, but with temperatures around 26-27 degrees, Christmas is currently one of the last things on mind… 😉 Inspired by the weather, I decided to make a fun bright Summer card instead:

For this card I followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and used the cute stamp “Hilda on Innertube” by Motivet. I’m very pleased with the outcome of the card, but also a bit sad as I’ve now used up my last sheets of papers from Basic Grey’s Sultry Collection. I luv, luv, luv these bright fun colors and I’m going to miss the papers dearly. 😥  Not only was this card a lot of fun to make, it was also a rather quick one. However, I must admit I was a bit lazy; instead of creating the sentiment myself, I looked through my stash and found an old sticker that I used instead… 😳

Thanks for visiting!
