JUGS #47 Color Challenge

Good Morning!

This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is being hosted by Lisa and she has come up with some really fun summer colors for us to play  with this week!  I hope you will join us for this weeks color challenge!

It inspired me to create this fun card that expresses how I feel about summer in a nut shell!

I hate that summer is coming to end shortly.  It means an end to my carefree days walking, talking and just hanging out with the bestest summer friends ever...sigh...  My friends husband says it best about my best friend and I he says, ''you two are sick everything you do (eat, sleep,breath, exercise)  is for two months out of the year!!!!"  YEP!!!  So... I am grateful for summer and will carry it with me for the next ten months as I do every year!!!  LOL!!!

Supplies;  PTI-cardstock-White and Hawaiin Shores,  A Day at the Beach stamp set, Prima-floral embellishments, CTMH mini brads, 1 1/2, 1 1/4 inch square punch, pop-ups, Copic marker R85

Check out the rest of the design teams creations along with our August guest designer Jo Westfoot for even more inspiration!
