SKOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!

Yes ... the kids have started their Summer Holidays and that means less time online for me for the next few weeks. However I hope to be dotting around now and again and intend to fit in some blog browsing whenever possible so won't be totally AWOL.

I have a couple of cards to show today ... the 1st one was made for my Uncle who celebrated his 80th Birthday last week.
I used DCWV Card Kit stack and added a Dufex Cricket Decoupage from my stash to the front.

The 2nd card is my entry for Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is a Colour Combination using the lovely summery colours of Lemon, Orange, Apple Green and Pink ~ how mouthwateringly fabbylicious!
I've used a sheet from the lovely Papermania Springtime Papers and matted it onto pink Papermania Textured Cardstock.
A slim strip of the same pink card was mounted across the front with a strip of narrow yellow ribbon tied to one side. The simple greeting was a magazine freebie and I've double matted it onto green card and then a square of pink funky foam to add some dimension.
Simple ... cute ... and summery! Another perfect addition to the Grab'n'Go Box.
