Another DP2 Challenge...I must be on a roll!

The song Monday, Monday by the Mama's and Papa's is going through my head...but wait!  It's Thursday!  I don't have a song for a Thursday.  Oh, well, I do have a card for you today, so forget the song and lets see the card.

I'm still trying to find my way around blogger. And GIMP too! During my many months of absence they changed everything on me.  Now I have to learn all over again.  SHEESH!!!

I'm sure you don't want to hear about that though.  A lot more interesting to view the card I have made don't you think?  So hear ya go...this is my entry for DP2 Challenge this week.  The theme is "Summer is Coming".  There are so may images Mo has available in her store, and I printed out several of them, but settled on "Kai in the Sand"  This image is Kai in the flowered hat.

The front of my card...

I used SU card stock and ribbon.
The dots are from Hero Arts, the paper is
from an unknown source, the sweet bucket charm is from my
stash and the little windmill I just purchased at

A close up of the sweet image... I love how Mo captures the sweetness of babies in her images...

 and 2


Here is how I finished the side of my card.  Both of the sentiments (front and inside)  are from Create with TLC.  Paulette has a wonderful selection of digital sentiments for any possible occasion. I love them because they don't take up any space in my studio.

And as always, the artsy creative zany cockeyed view....


Well, that's it for today my friends. I hope you've enjoyed viewing my entry for the challenge.  I have a busy weekend ahead taking a Heirloom Sewing and Smocking class.

See you again soon...
Blessings and hugs
