Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

This is my Stars and Stripes card for the Stamp Simply Challenge on Friday that I missed. Since the 4th is nearly over, I went with a summer theme and a light-hearted, fun card. This lady perched on her post just made me chuckle. Love these fun vintage images for a quick card!


Another simple creation done in the tent topper style I just love, created by Michelle Wooderson — a GREAT card design — just a little different and fun for a change. The card base is 4.25″ square and the image is mounted so to make the card 5.5″ high, just like a normal A2 sized card.

And do you remember when I did this cardusing JustRite Font, I said I was going to stamp some *Summer* sentiments just to have on hand? Well, came in handy today! Something you may want to consider when building words on your Rectangle Stampers.
