Summer fun!

What a fabulous weekend we had! Our daughter & her family came out to visit for a few days & it was lovely & hot. The girls got into a water fight with Grandpa....I would say Grandpa lost!!! Even though he had the garden hose & Jessica only had a water gun! Even the dog got in the action.

My card for today brings back other great summer memories of days at the beach with the girls making sandcastles & catching minnows in their pails. This is an image from The Stamping Boutique & the shells were off the net; it is colored with prismacolor pencils & OMS; the papers are from DCWV "Citrus" stack & the brads are Recollections". This is also my first attempt a sewing on a card...I need lots more practice!!! Hope the sun is shining where you are! Hugs, Renee

I plan to enter my card in the following challenges:
1. Fab n Funky.....summer holidays
