Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Yikes we are in July already - I sure wish the winters would go by as fast as our summers do.  It seems like only yesterday was Memorial Day:( Well, we are enjoying the few warm sunny days that we have had with no rain:(  I would be very happy to have just a few days in a row with nothing buy sunshine on my face. One of my most favorite things to do is swimming and in the SUN! In door pools are okay, but I much rather be outside with fresh air and sunshine. How about you? Do you like to swim or what is your favorite thing to do in the summer months. My friends in South Africa are currently having their winter months - the ideal world be to live between the two continents and have summer all year long!!

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge at Challenge and the  theme is "Markers" it doesn't matter what kind of markers you use to color with. Come on and join the fun and have the chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to the 7 Kids College Fund store.

Ok, Rhea Wiegand told me to get out of my comfort box and so I did on this card! Ok, just a little -  so it's still a Sarah Kay image and if you follow my blog - you will know I LOVE Sarah K...just look at my previous post:)  I on all the sidedistressed the edges of all the papers and sponged Tea Dye Distress ink over them and the lace. Sprinkled it with Stampendous Shabby White and Aged Bronze Embossing Enamels and heat set it from the bottom, so the powder would stay in place. I sure wish you could see it in person for it is really much prettier then it shows in the photo.

Wow, Colleen, what a stunning card! Love your distressing and enameling! How fun for you to "get out of your comfort box"! :^) Love the sweet image--she is beautifully colored, as always! Love the design, pretty lace and fab embellies, too! :^)
And my idea of the perfect day is being perched by the ocean--and snorkeling for an hour or so. Then I'd get out of the sun, under an umbrella, but in full sight of the ocean. So, I live in the desert--what's wrong with that picture?
Hugs, Penny
P.S. I'd live in Hawaii if I could. Perfect spot for weather!
