Hello Summer Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to the Hello Summer Blog Hop hosted by the fabulous Ashley of the Glamorous Side Of Scrapping.  If you came from Angela's blog you are in the right spot.  If you just happened to stop by, make sure you go back to the beginning so you don't miss a thing!  There are awesome prizes to be won along the way so make sure you leave a little love on each person's blog. 

Summer means different things to different people.  To me- Summer means enjoying every minute I can with my family.  My work is very busy during the Summer and late hours and weekend work is not uncommon for me during these months.  We try to do family oriented things on the weekends I have free so we pack in a lot of fun in a short amount of time!
I made a quick and simple card with some of my favorite summer colors.

The "Life is Good" is from Echo Park from the Silhouette Store.
The background papers are DCWV Linen Closet and Echo Park This and That.
The banners are from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Stack.
The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM Caribbean Splash Bundle.

A little blog candy for one lucky follower:
Just leave a comment below with your favorite Summer activity for your chance to win the Caribbean Bundle of crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.

Your next stop is Lissa Marie!

Happy Hopping and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Such a beautiful card you created! I love EVERYTHING about it!! The colors you used are fun but not overpowering, which I appreciate since a lot of people tend to associate summer with super bright/neon colors.

    My favorite things to do over the summer include taking my son to the park/river, trips to the coast and roasting marshmallows for s'mores :)

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. What a beautiful card!! I love the colors, especially the Caribbean blue-green of the 3 Girl Jam ribbon. It DOES remind me of the turquoise Jell-O we swam in while visiting the islands. For the summer fun activities: I love barbecuing, pool swims and the sound of the chicadas' orchestra on a sultry night. My FAVORITE thing about summer is AIR CONDITIONING!! This summer, I'm hampered -- a cast from my toe to my knee will make life not so sweet and extra hot. POOH!! Oh well -- more time for crafting!!
