Well, I can't wait to soak up some sun today. The weather for Texas right now is uncommonly not-as-hot-as-it-normally-is. A.K.A. only like highs in the low 90's. I can totally deal with that, so a little outdoor time is in order for today. I can't believe we are well on our way through the first week of July! Being that it's the 5th of the month, that means it's time for the VERVE Diva Inspiration Hop! I LOVE my Verve!
By the way, the hop started over on Julee's blog and you should have traveled right along and came here from Sony's blog. Here's more of what I did:
So when I made this card, I was understandably inspired by the sunshine and happy feeling of having my girls home for the summer. We are having so much fun just being together! I used one of my favorite sets, Stronger Love for this one. I usually combine several sets, but this time, I kept it simple, but with embellishments "aplenty" including a little banner from the Pennant Trim Die.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Did ya'll notice the washi tape? It's not just for collecting anymore! Tear off a couple of strips (no, you won't waste it), and use it to accent a corner of a panel or something. I like to pull back the ends and make them a little rolly by rubbing my finger over the edge kind of backwards to add texture.
