Summer Traditions

Hi everyone!! I'm still on vacation but I'm having major withdrawals from blogging and making cards! We have had such a wonderful time in Michigan. Still planning to go to Greenfield Village and tonight we are going to see my best friend's son play soccer. Although we are having fun I'm ready to get home and back to our regular routine.

I made this card before we left but I'm posting now. It was my entry to Magnolia Ink contest. I haven't heard anything about it so I thought I would go ahead and post it. Such a summery card. Our family tradition in the summer was to go "up north" and spend most of the summer by the lake. I really loved going and catching frogs, going water skiing, and for long walks in the woods. I miss the good ole days.
The dock, grass and flowers are masked together and Tilda is attached with pop dots. I went pretty slim on the embellishments but I like the way it turned out. Sorry I didn't post the copics used.

Hope your having a wonderful week!

Very nice card Lisa...reminds me of sitting on the dock at the lake with my feet in the water. You did a wonderful job coloring and layering your images.

super cute Lisa! LOVE the combination of images and your design...They make the card! I submitted to the contest too and haven't heard...I don't think you do. I haven't posted mine yet. Hopefully it won't be too much longer and the magazine will be here! Hope we both win!
