Images of Summer

For today's blog, as we head into the long weekend for Labour Day, I thought I would post the different cards that I made with the theme of summer.

First, a card for my niece to thank her and her husband for their wonderful hospitality:

Most of the cardstock used was from my scrap stash.  I embossed the cones to make them look real and inked the edges of the icecream.  I added a small brad for the "Thank You" and a simple ribbon.

For the next card, it's a swimming theme using the cartridge "3 Birds on Parade".  It's a small card, 3 x 3, but perfect for my son.
For this card, the solid paper is Bazzil and the striped is SEI Oasis collection

And then for a nice summer night out on the town, this card for my daughter (also a 3 x 3 card). 

The cardstock for the base and dress was DCWV The Sweet collection and the shoes and background for the frame was DCWV matstock glitter.

And finally, for a sweet girl who just received her driver's license, a nice blue car.

I can't remember which cardstock I used for this one.  I believe the car is DCWV matstock glitter.  I simply added a daisy embellishment and a brown and blue polka dot ribbon.

Happy Friday everyone!
