Livin' Easy This Summer....

Hi! I'm back today with a card that perfectly describes my summer! HAHA!

Angelica (the co-owner of Market Street Stamps) pretty much hit the nail on the head on the Market Street Stamps blog Tuesday when she was describing how summer kind of sweeps you away sometimes and doesn't leave very much time for crafty stuff! I have literally been swept away for the past month visiting family and spending some much needed quality time with my hubby before school starts and my husband leaves for a deployment. My craft "space" has definitely been neglected lately!

I did grab some time last week to whip up a few cards and I was seriously in summertime mode! I pulled out my Chillaxin set and went to town! I LOVE the sweet images and sentiments in this set and showcased them here in this fun card!

I had a blast coloring that super sweet palm tree! I paired it with some patterned paper "sand" (Distressed Dots from PTI) and a splash of bright color (some Summer Sunrise satin ribbon)! I love to add just a bit of brightness to a card that has a lot of earthy colors- it's one of my favorite ways to play with color!

Stay tuned to the Market Street Stamps blog for more Senior DT announcements throughout the month of July! The next announcement will come on Tuesday night!
