Have a Sweet Summer

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far.  (For those who are in the middle of their winter, I'm sorry.  :-D ). So I've got a card to share today that was made for a few challenges.  CAS-ual Fridays is having a fun challenge they are calling "Summer Lovin' ".  They want to see summer colours and hearts.  So this is what I came up with...
**note**  shoot!  I missed the deadline for CAS-ual Fridays.  Oh well.  :-)

I used a heart shaped post it note as a mask and sponged pink, red and yellow around it.  I blended them some so it looks like there is orange too.  My sentiment is a combo of two.  The "have a" is a portion of a sentiment by Hero Arts and the "sweet summer" is a free digi by Neat and Tangled.  If you want to check out more of their free digis go HERE.  I trimmed them separately and coloured the edges with a yellow ink pad.  I attached them with some foam tape.  Then I added some tiny puffy heart stickers I had in my stash.  I got my design layout idea from this weeks CAS(E) This Sketch.  It's been forever since I've played along with them.  Look at the great sketch...

I'm also linking up to Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is to create a CAS card.

Now I'd like to take a quick moment to welcome some new followers.  First is Cynthia Makortoff.  She's my MIL and always very supportive of my card making endeavors.  Thanks Mom!  :-). Another follower through Bloglovin is Patricia Cockerham.  Welcome!  And last but not least, Rachel of Inky Fingers Are Me.  She's brand new to blogging so go over and check out her first post and give her a warm welcome!

One more thing I'd like to mention before I call it a day.  I'm celebrating my second blogiversary this month so something fun will be happening in the next few days.  Stayed tuned!

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!


  1. I love how you've sponged those summery colours to create that crisp, white heart. Fabulous CAS card, thanks for joining in the fun at ATSM this week, hope to see you again soon. Anita x

  2. It's so disappointing to miss a deadline but never mind you made it to ATSM, thanks.
    Bright summery colours contrast well with the bright white of the heart. :)
