Dare To Get Dirty Challenges Begin

VLV July Week 2 photo VLVJulWk4picA.jpg

A wonderful sketch by Diva Janelle this week over at the Verve forum on SCS.   A fun optional twist you can include in your cad is having an uneven front fold over.

I used some Recollections paper from their Sweetest Thing paper pad and paired it with this fabulous One Day Plain Jane.  Always a great reminder to enjoy today for all it has to bring and if life is too much to handle at the moment, it is a great way to get through those rocky times -- speaking directly from experience!

This card qualifies for today's Dare to Get Dirty 2013 challenge hosted by Twinshappy.  You can check out all the challenge details here, but only if you are a Fan Club member over on Splitcoast Stampers.

Hard to believe July is almost over - yikes!!  Swimming lessons are now over and we are moving into a more relaxed August schedule with hopefully a little get away in the mix.  The weather has been amazing as has our summer together -- my mommy heart is just bursting :)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for popping in today!

What a pretty floral paper! I love the burst of color from the little flags and butterfly. And that decorative edge is so sweet!
