Summertime is finally hereThat old ballpark, man, is back in gear
Out on 49
Man I can see the lights
School's out and the nights roll in
Man, just like a long lost friend
You ain't seen in a while
And can't help but smile
And it's two bare feet on the dashboard
Young love and an old Ford
Cheap shades and a tattoo
And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard
Perfect song on the radio
Sing along 'cause it's one we know
It's a smile, it's a kiss
It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
Yup, it's summertime once again folks, although you would never know it here lol. Our days the last week have been cloudy and cold. But Guylou's Inimitibility has something that should warm you up. Her newest challenge is all about the sweet summertime! All you have to do is make up a card that has the word sweet somewhere on the front...sorry the sentiment with the word sweet must be on the front of the card where we can see it. Otherwise, the choice is up to you on what you want to do. Now when I think of summer and sweet things, I think of a long time friend of mine who was just out to visit me and long summer days spent just enjoying each other's company.here. It just makes me think of settling in for a cup of coffee and a chat when I look at it. I really wanted to do something special with her so I decided to make a Octagonal Easle card. You can find the template for one (as well as others) here.
So now onto the all the details on the challenge.
Our host for this challenge is Gina. Her challenge is
1. The word "sweet" visible!!! Not inside the card, but on the face of the card.
2. The theme of the card should be something to do with summer and/or warm weather. Examples: the beach, sun, sand, picnic, summery foods like ice cream or watermelon, bathing suits, flip flops, etc.
Don't have an image from Guylou's you say? No problem, you can use any image, but if you would like to use a Guylou's Inimitibility Image, you can find a whole bunch of wonderful images in her store here.
Will there be a prize you're asking? Well of course there's going to be a prize, and what a prize it is! The winner of this challege will win a $5 gift certificate from Guylou's Inimitibility to spend on anything they like in the store. You will also get the chance to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge!!! How totally fabulous is that? So what are you waiting for...head on over to Guylou's challenge blog. You have nothing to loose and lots to gain!
