WHIMSY SUMMER DAYS

***Happy Memorial Day!! Please take some time today to remember why we recognize this special day and give thanks to our troops past and present for the sacrifices they have made so we can have this great country today! ***



It's time for another Whimsy Challenge - WHOOOHOO! Today's theme is summer, anything you want to do that represents summer!! So, I decided to make my card using the cute Whimsy Turtle because to me turtles remind me of summer - we used to go to the creek and catch them during the summer months and bring them home as pets, lol! Please stop by the Whimsy Challenges site and see what the rest of the Design Team did for the challenge, there is some serious eye candy there, and you don't want to miss it! Also, why not play along? You don't have to use a Whimsy Image but if you have them, why not use them - you will get an extra chance at the drawing if you do! And, there is a fabulous prize up for grabs for the lucky winner so what do you have to lose? Plus, we will get to see YOUR fabulous creations too! I hope you all play along! Enjoy the rest of your day, we are off to the lake for a day of swimming and barbecue!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Whisper White Card stock, Basic Gray Lilykate patterned paper
